  • Background Multiple major health organisations recommend the use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) support for COVID-19-related acute hypoxaemic respiratory failure. However, initial reports of ECMO use in patients with COVID-19 described very high mortality and there have been no large, international cohort studies of ECMO for COVID-19 reported to date. Methods We used data from the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO) Registry to characterise the epidemiology… CONTINUE READING
