Latest extracorporeal membrane oxygenation Stories
Children with a heart defect called transposition of great arteries (TGA) are born with the two major blood vessels (aorta and the main lung artery) arising from the wrong sides of the heart.

The Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO) has recognized Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, FL, with the ELSO Award for Excellence in Life Support for its Extracorporeal
Measuring blood flow in the brain may be an easy, noninvasive way to predict stroke or hemorrhage in children receiving cardiac or respiratory support through a machine called ECMO.
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), a procedure traditionally used during cardiac surgeries and in the ICU that functions as an artificial replacement for a patient's heart and lungs, has also been used to resuscitate cardiac arrest victims in Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea.
ECMO transport program allows hospital to treat more complex patients from outside region. St.
Adults with end-stage respiratory failure and pulmonary hypertension requiring ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) have been "bridged" toward lung transplantation with novel lung assist devices such as the Novalung.
Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation, also known as ECMO, is best described as long term life support occurring outside the patient’s body. It should be noted, however, that ECMO is temporary and typically lasts three to ten days on average. ECMO is a means of oxygenating blood without it having to circulate inside the body, and thus allows time for essential recovery of the heart and lungs. ECMO comes with many serious risks and is only used in severe cases of cardiac or respiratory failure...
