ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) is a complex system, similar to the heart-lung bypass machine used in open heart surgery. When a patient is connected to ECMO, blood flows through tubing to an artificial lung in the machine, which adds oxygen and takes out carbon dioxide. Thereafter, the blood is warmed as per the body temperature and pumped back in the body.

How can ECMO help in recovery?

Kết quả xổ số hôm nay tốtECMO pumps and oxygenates the impure blood outside the body, allowing the heart and lungs to rest. The impure blood then passes through the ECMO machine and purifies it. Thereafter, it sends the blood back to the body through complex system of channels.

When is ECMO used?

Kết quả xổ số hôm nay tốtThere are two types of ECMO- 

VA ECMO is connected both to a vein and an artery and is used when there are problems with both heart and lungs.

Kết quả xổ số hôm nay tốtThe VV-ECMO is connected to one or more veins, usually near the heart and is used when the problem is only in the lungs. This machine is primarily used for:

Kết quả xổ số hôm nay tốt-Patients recovering from heart failure, or lung failure or heart surgery.

- As a bridge option to further treatment, i.e. when doctors want to assess the state of other organs such as the kidneys or brain before performing heart or lung surgery.

- Providing support during high-risk procedures in the cardiac catheterization lab after massive heart attack.

- As a bridge to a heart assist device, such as left ventricular assist device (LVAD).

- As a bridge for patients awaiting lung transplant. The ECMO helps keep tissues well oxygenated, which makes the patient a better candidate for transplant.

-Severe lung failure following Swine Flu infection (H1N1)

- Severe lung failure following Dengue fever.

Who are the right candidates for ECMO therapy?

Kết quả xổ số hôm nay tốtAcute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) secondary to pneumonia, aspiration, severe air leak

Kết quả xổ số hôm nay tốtRefractory Septic / Cardiogenic Shock

Myocarditis - viral, scorpion sting

Post Arrest shock

Meconium Aspiration

Kết quả xổ số hôm nay tốtCongenital Diaphragmatic Hernia

Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension



Results of ECMO 

Studies have shown upto 70% success rate with ECMO therapy; however in most of the cases the results depend on how serious is the lung injury at the time of starting this therapy.
