BACKGROUND No consensus exists on the optimal settings of mechanical ventilation during veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). Our aim was to describe how mechanical ventilation and related interventions are managed by adult ECMO centres. METHODS A cross-sectional, multi-centre, international survey of 173 adult respiratory ECMO centres.(More)
A 29-year-old male developed a fatal stroke 6 h after successful thrombolysis for massive pulmonary embolism. Autopsy showed thrombus protruding through a patent foramen ovale (PFO). A strand of thrombus extended from the aortic arch into the left common carotid artery. The brain showed extensive infarction of the left fronto-parietal area. Thrombolysis(More)
We conducted a single-centre observational study of retrievals for severe respiratory failure over 12 months. Our intensivist-delivered retrieval service has mobile extracorporeal membrane oxygenation capabilities. Sixty patients were analysed: 34 (57%) were female and the mean (SD) age was 44.1 (13.6) years. The mean (SD) PaO2 /FI O2 ratio at referral was(More)

PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to describe the effect of levosimendan (without loading dose) on hemodynamics, inotropes/vasopressors, and mortality in acute heart failure (AHF). MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients who received levosimendan for AHF were analyzed. Levosimendan dose, hemodynamic data, inotrope/vasopressor requirements, and fluid balance(More)
