CARL. Anniversary at the EuroELSO in Lisbon
Exactly one year ago, CARL was presented for the first time to an international audience at EuroELSO 2022 in London. Exactly 12 months later, an extremely positive balance can be drawn after EuroELSO 2023 in Lisbon. With over 350 participants, the CARL Lunch Symposium on “CARL – The next level of ECPR?” was the best-attended industry symposium of the congress. Dinis Dos Reis Miranda (Rotterdam), Eike Tigges (Hamburg) and Matthias Lubnow (Regensburg), as early users, reported on their previous in- and out-of-hospital applications and the potential of CARL as a second chance for survival in the extended rescue chain.
The CARL booth was very busy throughout the congress. The intensive cooperation with all CARL sales partners in Europe was particularly pleasing. This year, CARL Technology was not only explained by the experts of the CARL Academy, but also by the respective product specialists of the different sales organizations.
In the two training units on “ECPR Simulation – Cannulation during high quality CPR”, which were fully booked with more than twenty participants each, the role of CARL in an interdisciplinary resuscitation scenario was successfully communicated under the direction of the CARL Academy. The CARL Spotlight of the second day of the congress – Jan Bělohlávek (Prague), one of the most renowned ECPR opinion leaders worldwide, demonstrated how important and life-saving time can be saved during ECPR implementation with an extremely fast cannulation and advice from practice.
“I am very pleased to see that our footprint in Europe has increased significantly. The overwhelming participation in our events and the consistently good feedback show us that we are on the right track towards a sustainable implementation of CARL in Europe,” says Patrick Rauh, Commercial Director of Resuscitec GmbH.
