OBJECTIVE The authors retrospectively reviewed their experience with extracorporeal life support (ECLS) in 100 adult patients with severe respiratory failure (ARF) to define techniques, characterize its efficacy and utilization, and determine predictors of outcome. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA Extracorporeal life support maintains gas exchange during ARF, providing diseased lungs an optimal environment in which to heal. Extracorporeal life support has been successful in the treatment of… 
Extracorporeal Life Support for Severe Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome in Adults
TLDR
Extracorporeal life support for severe ARDS in adults is a successful therapeutic option in those patients who do not respond to conventional mechanical ventilator strategies.
Extracorporeal Life Support in Pediatric and Neonatal Critical Care: A Review
  • L. Lequier
  • Medicine
    Journal of intensive care medicine
  • 2004
TLDR
The number of patients requiring this support, however, is declining yearly, and those patients who receive ECLS compose a more severe subset of an intensive care population.
Extracorporeal life support in pulmonary failure after trauma.
TLDR
It is the experience that early institution of ECLS may lead to improved oxygen delivery, diminished ventilator-induced lung injury, and improved survival in adult trauma patients with multiple injuries and severe pulmonary failure.
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in adults with severe respiratory failure: a multi-center database
TLDR
Survival among this cohort of adults with severe respiratory failure supported with ECMO was 50%.
Extracorporeal life support for severe adult respiratory failure
TLDR
This review summarizes the current recommendations on a controversial, invasive technique termed ‘extracorporeal life support’ as a means to provide temporary pulmonary support during ‘lung-protective’ strategies and describes how clinical trials have demonstrated its efficacy in neonatal and pediatric patients.
Extracorporeal life support in critically ill adults.
TLDR
Theoretical advantages of ECLS for respiratory failure include the ability to rest the lungs by avoiding injurious mechanical ventilator settings and the potential to facilitate early mobilization, which may be advantageous for bridging to recovery or to lung transplantation.
Clinical Pearls in Venovenous Extracorporeal Life Support for Adult Respiratory Failure
TLDR
Key physiologic and clinical points in VV ECLS for adult respiratory failure for acute respiratory distress syndrome are highlighted in this review.

Extracorporeal life support for neonatal respiratory failure. A 20-year experience.
TLDR
Extracorporeal life support has become standard treatment for severe neonatal respiratory failure in the center, worldwide, and worldwide and the availability of ECLS makes the evaluation of other innovative methods of treatment, such as late elective repair of diaphragmatic hernia and new pulmonary vasodilators, possible.
Efficacy of extracorporeal life support in the setting of adult cardiorespiratory failure.
TLDR
ECLS can be a life saving modality for the management of severe adult cardiorespiratory failure and earlier institution of ECLS in the course of cardiopulmonary failure may improve outcome.
Extracorporeal life support for cardiovascular support in adults.
TLDR
Because of its relative ease of deployment and its rapid correction of acute physiologic derangements, ECLS can be used as a temporary means of support to determine extent and reversibility of organ dysfunction.
Extracorporeal life support for pediatric respiratory failure
TLDR
Extracorporeal life support is an effective rescue therapy for pediatric patients with severe respiratory failure (University of Michigan survival rate of 60%) and there were no differences detectable in the blood gas values (PaO2, PaCO2, P[A-a]O2) in survivors and nonsurvivors before extracorpreal life support.
Extracorporeal life support for adult cardiorespiratory failure.
TLDR
With modern techniques, ECLS can be lifesaving in adult cardiorespiratory failure when conventional therapy has failed, and this new phase 1 trial of modern extracorporeal life support in moribund adults with cardiorespiratory failure shows this.
Mortality is directly related to the duration of mechanical ventilation before the initiation of extracorporeal life support for severe respiratory failure.
OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between the period of mechanical ventilation before extracorporeal life support and survival in patients with respiratory failure. DESIGN Retrospective
The impact of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation on survival in pediatric patients with acute respiratory failure. Pediatric Critical Care Study Group.
TLDR
The use of ECMO was associated with an improved survival in pediatric patients with respiratory failure and the lack of association of outcome with treatment in the ECMO-capable hospital or with another tertiary technology suggests that ECMO itself was responsible for the improved outcome.
Initial experience with partial liquid ventilation in adult patients with the acute respiratory distress syndrome
TLDR
Perflubron may be safely administered into the lungs of patients with severe respiratory failure receiving extracorporeal life support and may be associated with improvement in gas exchange and pulmonary compliance.
Low-frequency positive-pressure ventilation with extracorporeal CO2 removal in severe acute respiratory failure.
TLDR
Extracorporeal carbon dioxide removal with low-frequency ventilation proved a safe technique, and it is suggested as a valuable tool and an alternative to treating severe acute respiratory failure by conventional means.
