In patients with the most severe forms of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) refractory to conventional mechanical ventilation and adjunctive or rescue therapies like kinetic therapy, inhaled vasodilators or extracorporeal CO2-elimination (extracorporeal lung assist), the use of the extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) can secure gas exchange… (More)
