Emerging Indications for Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation in Adults with Respiratory Failure

Emerging Indications for Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation in Adults with Respiratory Failure

Recent advances in technology have spurred the increasing use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in patients with severe hypoxemic respiratory failure.Ultimately, with upcoming and future technological advances, there is the promise of true destination therapy, which could lead to a major paradigm shift in the management of respiratory failure.

Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) and the Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS)

We conducted a systematic literature review of animal models combining features of experimental ARDS with ECMO to better understand this situation.

Regional Cerebral Oximetry as an Indicator of Acute Brain Injury in Adults Undergoing Veno-Arterial Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation-A Prospective Pilot Study

Regional Cerebral Oximetry as an Indicator of Acute Brain Injury in Adults Undergoing Veno-Arterial Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation-A Prospective Pilot Study

ECMO patients that develop acute brain injuries (ABIs) are observed to have worse outcomes. We evaluated the association between rScO2 and ABI in venoarterial (VA) ECMO patients.

Cannulation Strategies in Adult Veno-arterial and Veno-venous Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation: Techniques, Limitations, and Special Considerations

Veno-arterial (VA) ECMO is used in selected patients with various etiologies of cardiogenic shock and entails either central or peripheral cannulation.

ECMO Summary

An Introduction to Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO)

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), also known as extracorporeal life support (ECLS), is an extracorporeal technique of providing prolonged cardiac and respiratory support to persons whose heart and lungs are unable to provide an adequate amount of gas exchange or perfusion to sustain life.
