Acute Mechanical Circulatory Support and ECMO Program Coordinator
Scripps Memorial Hospital
Ms. Eigner is the Acute Mechanical Circulatory Support and ECMO Program Coordinator at Scripps Memorial Hospital in San Diego, California. She specializes in advanced mechanical support in Cardiogenic Shock, Respiratory Failure, and Resuscitation and has over 10 years of experience in clinical and leadership roles in the Cardiac ICU. Juliann has spent the last few years developing and implementing resuscitation and mechanical circulatory support protocols in an effort to optimize survival and improve patient outcomes.
In this modern age, it's remarkable that after more than a half-century survival from cardiac arrest have shown minimal improvement. However, in some cutting-edge cities, survival rates exceed the national average, leading us to reevaluate what is necessary to improve outcomes. From adopting new technologies that enhance blood flow in the prehospital setting, to implementing resuscitative protocols, including extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), we must be open to new ideas when tackling cardiac arrest. To make progress in a field that has been seemingly stagnate, progressive programs may finally move the needle on survival rates while also creating best practices for future resuscitation initiatives.
