Ambulatory veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation: innovation and pitfalls.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE End-stage lung disease and severe acute lung injury are complex entities that remain challenges to manage. Therapies include early institution of mechanical ventilation with positive end-expiratory pressure, permissive hypercapnia, pulmonary vasodilators, and complex fluid regimens.
