  • __Abstract__ Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) or extra corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a technique for providing life support in severe but potentially reversible cardiorespiratory failure in patients with an expected mortality greater than 80%. First pioneered in cardiopulmonary bypass during cardiac surgery, ECLS has been used as prolonged cardiopulmonary support in neonates since 1976. It has been shown to have a survival benefit in neonates and adults. Increasingly ECMO… CONTINUE READING
