Courses with Demetri Yannopoulos MD

Medical Director, Center for Resuscitation Medicine
University of Minnesota Medical School
Dr. Yannopoulos has published more than 110 articles in the field of resuscitation and many book chapters. He has received funding from the NIH to evaluate methods to improve neurological outcomes after prolonged untreated arrest. He is the recipient of the NIH Director's transformative research award which evaluates ways to mitigate reperfusion injury after cardiac arrest. Dr. Yannopoulos is the PI of the ACCESS trial, a phase III, multicenter US trial that assesses the effect of early access to the cardiac catheterization on survival to hospital discharge for patients resuscitated after VF OHCA. Dr. Yannopoulos, in the collaboration of the Twin Cities EMS directors, has established the first ECMO-based resuscitation protocol in the US for refractory VF OHCA patients. With the support of the Helmsley Charitable Trust, he is currently and actively assessing ways to implement prehospital circulatory support for cardiac arrest victims and transform prehospital care for very time critical interventions.
Tackling Refractory Cardiac Arrest: New Concepts for System-wide Collaboration

Tackling Refractory Cardiac Arrest: New Concepts for System-wide Collaboration

This session will highlight presentations from three leading researchers in the field of cardiac arrest care. Dr. Karl Kern, a professor of medicine a the University of Arizona, discusses the statistics associated with treatment of refractory v-fib patients. Dr. Demetri Yannopoulos, a professor of medicine at the University of Minnesota, discusses patient selection and management regarding transporting refractory v-fib patients. Dr. Brian Grunau, an emergency physician and director ECPR program of St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver, BC, will discuss the value of a load and go approach vs. a stay and play model for cardiac arrest and refractory v-fib patients.
The Role of Perfusion and ECMO in Cardiac Arrest: How Pre-Hospital and In-Hospital Initiatives are Directly Related and Vital for Successful ECMO Outcomes

The Role of Perfusion and ECMO in Cardiac Arrest: How Pre-Hospital and In-Hospital Initiatives are Directly Related and Vital for Successful ECMO 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.
