Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (Euro-ELSO)
The Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO) is an international non-profit consortium committed to the development, evaluation, and improvement of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and other innovative therapies. ECMO is a technique through which the heart and lung function can be supported or replaced in children and adults.
The “European ELSO group” was launched in 2011 and an annual spring meeting, the “EuroELSO Convention”, was initiated. After initial meetings in France, Italy and Sweden the first congress in Germany took place in 2015 and proved to be the most successful congress to date. We enjoyed an extremely constructive and pleasant cooperation with the local authorities and we are proud to have made our contribution to the success of EuroElso in 2015.
For the period 2019 – 2022, Interplan will serve the organisation as core PCO in Europe.
