The occurrence of gaseous microemboli (GME) within the extracorporeal membrane oxygenation circuit is largely overlooked, as are methods to ameliorate this occurrence. We aimed to determine if the air handling capability of the Quadrox D oxygenator was dependent upon whether it was used in conjunction with a centrifugal or roller pump; and if application of a Pall air eliminating filter (AEF) would prevent circuit air introduction from intravenous infusions. Using a blood primed circuit 1 mL of… Expand
Quantification of Postmembrane Gaseous Microembolization During Venoarterial Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation
Prolonged use of venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA ECMO) may be complicated by end-organ dysfunction. Although gaseous microemboli (GME) are thought to damage end organs duringExpand
Extracorporeal Life Support
The chapter highlights recent literature regarding the outcomes of patients supported with ECMO for respiratory failure and discusses the use of ECMO is specific situations, such as extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR), patients with septic shock, “non-traditional” patient populations, and adults with acute hypoxemic respiratory failure.

Ex vivo models for research in extracorporeal membrane oxygenation: a systematic review of the literature
Pre-clinical testing including use of ex vivo models is an important step in the development and improvement of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation components and materials and there is a need to standardize the reporting of pre-clinical studies in this area. Expand
Gaseous microemboli in cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass: the use of veno-arterial shunt as a preventive method.
The result suggests the denitrogenation of blood byhyperoxia dissolved microbubbles in the blood and venoarterial shunt can balance the respiratory parameters changed with hyperoxia. Expand
