ECMO

 

Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation
( ECMO)

We offer ECMO to support heart and lung function in infants with cardiorespiratory failure. Babies showing no improvement on a respiratory ventilator may benefit from the procedure, which works much like a heart-lung bypass machine. During the procedure, the baby’s blood is filtered through the ECMO machine, which puts oxygen into the blood and returns it to the body. This oxygenated blood is pumped by the heart into the body’s other organs and tissues.
