We describe our experience of 30 consecutive children supported with ECMO and receiving 20 ppm of nitric oxide in the oxygenator of the ECMO circuit. Administration of nitric oxide into the ECMO circuit is safe and could potentially mitigate ischaemia reperfusion injury and end-organ dysfunction of children requiring mechanical support.

Veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) is an option for mechanical support for patients with postcardiotomy cardiogenic shock (PCS). However, the use of VA-ECMO in patients suffering from aortic disease with PCS has not been greatly reported. This is a retrospective review of adult patients undergoing aortic surgery who received VA-ECMO support to treat refractory PCS from August 2009 to May 2016. A total of 36 patients who underwent aortic surgery with VA-ECMO support for refractory PCS were included...

BACKGROUND: Accidental hypothermia with cardiac arrest represents a challenge for pre-hospital rescuers as well as in-hospital staff. For pre-hospital personnel, the main focus is to get the patient to the correct destination without unnecessary delay. For in-hospital personnel early information is vital to assess the possibility for resuscitation with extracorporeal re-warming. The challenge is augmented when rescuers must cross national borders to reach and/or deliver the patients. We present a case where three adolescent boys suffered severe hypothermia after a canoeing accident in Sweden...

BACKGROUND: Postcardiotomy cardiogenic shock (PCCS) refractory to inotropic support and intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) occurs rarely but is almost universally fatal without mechanical circulatory support. In this systematic review and meta-analysis we looked at the evidence behind the use of veno-arterial extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (VA ECMO) in refractory PCCS from a patient survival rate and determinants of outcome viewpoint. METHODS: A systematic review was performed in January 2017 using PubMed (with no defined time period) using the keywords "postcardiotomy", "cardiogenic shock", "extracorporeal membrane oxygenation" and "cardiac surgery"...

BACKGROUND: Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is employed to rescue patients with early graft dysfunction after lung transplantation (LTx). Rates of post-LTx ECMO and subsequent outcomes have been limited to single-center reports. METHODS: UNOS registry was queried for LTx recipients from March 2015 to March 2016; 2,001 recipients were identified and stratified by need for post-LTx ECMO. Logistic regression was used to determine variables associated with post-LTx ECMO...

OBJECTIVES: Growth problems are reported in patients with congenital diaphragmatic hernia during the first years of life. However, it is unknown if poor growth persists during childhood. We therefore evaluated growth of patients longitudinally until 12 years of age. METHODS: This prospective study included 172 patients (43 treated with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation [ECMO]) born from 1999 to 2014. Z scores of height-for-age (HFA), weight-for-height, and distance-to-target height were calculated at 6 months of age and at 1, 2, 5, 8, and 12 years of age...

BACKGROUND: Femoral venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) is widely used to maintain blood flow in patients with cardiogenic shock. However, retrograde blood flow increases left ventricular (LV) afterload during femoral VA-ECMO. Additional support by means of an intraaortic balloon pump (IABP) alleviates LV afterload but is associated with significant adverse events. We previously developed a system for rotational speed modulation in synchrony with the native cardiac cycle, for use with implantable continuous-flow LV assist devices...

BACKGROUND: Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has been associated with platelet dysfunction, but no markers of platelet dysfunction during ECMO have been identified. METHODS: We investigated the potential uses of beta-thromboglobulin (beta-TG) and platelet factor 4 (PF4) as markers of platelet activation induced by ECMO in vivo. RESULTS: 13 patients who received ECMO for acute respiratory failure were included. Generalized estimating equations were used to examine the associations between days on ECMO and the plasma levels of beta-TG and PF4 and of proinflammatory markers...

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is commonly used in patients who experience circulatory arrest or significant cardiac dysfunction and is associated with improved clinical outcomes. We conducted a retrospective observational study on ECMO application at a single tertiary center over a five-year period. Five patients who suffered post-partum hemorrhage resulting from uterine atony were treated with ECMO. The mean age was 36.8 ± 3.9 years; the mean gestational age was 37.8 ± 2.2 weeks; the initial mean maternal hemoglobin level was 5...

The purpose of this study was to compare diffusion tensor metrics in normal age-matched neonates with survivors of hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). Thirty-five normal, 27 HIE, and 13 ECMO infants underwent MRI at 3 T. Neurodevelopmental assessments were performed. Fractional anisotropy (FA), axial diffusivity (AD), and radial diffusivity (RD) of the inferior fronto-occipital fasciculus, inferior longitudinal fasciculus, anterior commissure, genu corpus callosum and splenium of the corpus callosum, anterior and posterior limb of the internal capsule, superior longitudinal fasciculus, and the centrum semiovale were analyzed with tract-based spatial statistics modified for use in neonates...

BACKGROUND: Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation supplies oxygenated blood to the body supporting the heart and lungs. Survival rates of 20% to 50% are reported among patients receiving ECMO for cardiac arrest, severe cardiogenic shock, or failure to wean from cardiopulmonary bypass following cardiac surgery. Bleeding is one of the most common complications in ECMO patients due to coagulopathy, systemic anticoagulation, and the presence of large bore cannulas at systemic pressure. Absence of a standardized transfusion protocol in this population leads to inconsistent transfusion practices...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Continuous venovenous hemofiltration or hemodiafiltration is used frequently in pediatric patients, but experience of continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) application on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) circuit is still limited. Among several methods used for applying CRRT on ECMO patients, we aim to share our experience on inclusion of a CRRT device in the ECMO circuit which we believe is easier and safer to apply. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The data were collected on demographics, outcomes, and details of the treatment of ECMO patients who had CRRT...

In recent years, the development of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) technology has led to its extensive use in clinical practice. In particular, ECMO can play an important role in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The American Heart Association CPR guidelines recommend its use in patients with cardiac arrest due to reversible disorders, along with high-quality CPR. This is called extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR). However, it is important to be aware of the possibility of infection-related complications...

Mechanical ventilation (MV) and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) are increasingly used to bridge patients to lung transplantation. We investigated the impact of using MV, with or without ECMO, prior to lung transplantation on survival after transplantation by performing a retrospective analysis of 826 patients who underwent transplantation at our high-volume center. Recipient characteristics and posttransplant outcomes were analyzed. Most lung transplant recipients (729 patients) did not require bridging; 194 of these patients were propensity matched with patients who were bridged using MV alone (48 patients) or MV and ECMO (49 patients)...

BACKGROUND: There is little in the literature pertaining to cost associated with the use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in lung transplantation. We sought to evaluate charges associated with the index hospitalization among recipients of a lung transplant who required ECMO to identify factors that increase hospital charges in these patients. METHODS: With the use of the Nationwide Inpatient Sample, we reviewed data pertaining to patients who received a lung transplant between 2000 and 2011 and stratified them into ECMO and non-ECMO groups based on use of ECMO...

Calcium channel blockers (CCBs) are responsible for a substantial portion of the mortality associated with cardiovascular medication overdose cases. Amlodipine, a dihydropyridine CCB, can cause prolonged hypotension in overdose. This report describes a severe amlodipine overdose case that was refractory to multiple therapeutic approaches. A 53-year-old male presented after ingesting eighty 10 mg amlodipine tablets in a suicide attempt. The patient was initially managed with calcium boluses, glucagon, multiple vasoactive agents, lipid emulsion infusions and hyperinsulinemic euglycemic therapy...
