Pediatric paracorporeal and extracorporeal therapies (PPET) are increasingly applied to support children with multiple organ failure (MOF). These highly complex, resource intensive technologies lie at the interface of innovation and the highest complexity clinical care; in patients with MOF, multiple treatment modalities are frequently used simultaneously.

The Pediatric Paracorporeal and Extracorporeal Therapies Summit (PPETS) 2022 will bring together, for the first time, pediatric and adult experts from across the globe in the fields of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, ventricular assist device, renal replacement therapy, extracorporeal liver support, and apheresis. The Summit will provide a framework to optimize the care of these patients and improve their outcomes.

About the Conference

We look forward to welcoming you to the inaugural PPETS 2022! 

The conference will provide a forum to:

  • Learn from each other,
  • Address some questions with expert presentations,
  • Discuss the needs for standardization of both terminology and practice,
  • Improve our understanding of the ethics surrounding these devices,
  • Explore how these technologies interact with one another in tandem and
  • Focus on improving the patient and family experiences and outcomes. 

While we regret we are not able to hold this conference in person this year due to the pandemic, we are excited to offer the first meeting via an interactive virtual platform, with the plan for PPETS 2023 to be offered as a hybrid platform, in person, in Houston.  Experts from across the world are looking forward to tackling the many challenges remaining to be conquered in conjunction with conference attendees.
