Change in the Slovenia Council representation

Hello, I am Ziga Vrhovnik, husband, father of two, working in University Clinical Center in Ljubljana, Slovenia. I am a registered nurse in ICU, for a short time I also worked as perfusionist in the cardio-vascular surgery department. As a team member of our department I work with critically ill mechanical ventilated patients. I have experience with mechanical assist devices such as ECMO, intra-aortic baloon pump and from this year also with Impella. I am part of ECMO educational group in our department. Working in three shifts is the biggest challenge for me to find enough time for family life. Ziga is the successor of Enej Loznar, who served as the Slovenian representative for the last two years.

Welcome Ziga - fare well and thank you for your participation, Enej.
