ECMO-Extracorporeal Life Support in Adults

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has been in clinical use for some 40 years, but it is only in the past decade that its application in the treatment of life-threatening circulatory and respiratory failure has truly flourished. This book presents a comprehensive overview of both pathophysiological and practical aspects of circulatory and respiratory extracorporeal support. The basics of ECMO, including its history, the “ECMO team”, cannulation, materials, and blood-surface interactions, are first discussed. The various indications for and particular characteristics of circulatory and respiratory extracorporeal life support are then described in detail in the main part of the boo...

  • Publisher: Humana Press

This book presents a concise, evidence-based review of extracorporeal life support (ECLS) for adult diseases. It describes the use of ECLS with patients who are experiencing severe hypoxemic respiratory failure (ARDS and pneumonia), ventilatory failure (status asthmaticus and COPD), cardiogenic shock and circulatory or gas exchange failure following complications in cardiothoracic surgery, as well as its use as a bridge to lung transplant. Historically, clinicians have used ECLS as a last resort; however, this text details the technological improvements, evidence of improved outcomes and adverse consequences of alternative treatments that are causing this modality to be more commonly adopted...

Abstract : Venoarterial (VA) extracorporeal life support (ECLS) for neonatal respiratory failure is associated with increased mortality compared with venovenous (VV) ECLS. It is unclear whether this is a causal relationship or reflects differences in baseline disease severity between infants managed with these two strategies. Our objective was to identify clinical variables associated with the preferential selection of VA over VV ECLS, as these may confound the association between VA ECLS and increased mortality. We identified documented indications for preferential VA selection through chart review. We then assessed how the presence of common indications impacted mortality. Thirty-nine case...

Manual of Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) in the ICU

Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) is a procedure that uses a machine to take over the work of the lungs and sometimes the heart. The system provides heart-lung bypass support using a pump to circulate blood through an artificial lung back into the bloodstream, providing enough oxygen to the patient, whilst allowing time for the lungs and heart to rest or heal during or after serious illness. ECMO is often used for babies, but can also be used for children and adults (Medline Plus). The techniques for ECMO require professionals from multidisciplinary background to be involved in the procedure. This practical manual is a comprehensive guide to ECMO. Divided into eleven sections, the b...

This handbook is directed at intensivists, surgeons, pediatricians, residents, perfusionists, nurses and ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) technologists involved in the care of patients with respiratory or cardiac failure which may require extracorporeal support. It provides specific information on the mechanics of ECMO, the equipment required, the physiology of extracorporeal support, and the management of patients supported on ECMO. Current results of ECMO and alternative support options are also reviewed in some chapters of this book. The authors' goal is to present clinically useful information in a manner that enables the reader to rapidly assess clinical situations, troubleshoot problems, and understand the expected results of therapy. Today, ECMO support has an important role in most major medical centers caring for critically-ill patients, whether for neonatal respiratory failure, cardiac failure, or for cardiopulmonary support after cardiac surgery or thoracic organ transplantation. No doubt new applications and refinements of this technology will appear in the future.
