Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation for Acute Life-Threatening Neurogenic Pulmonary Edema following Rupture of an Intracranial Aneurysm

Abstract

Neurogenic pulmonary edema (NPE) leading to cardiopulmonary dysfunction is a potentially life-threatening complication in patients with central nervous system lesions. This case report describes a 28-yr woman with life-threatening fulminant NPE, which was refractory to conventional respiratory treatment, following the rupture of an aneurysm. She was treated… (More)
