Despite wide use and decades of experience, survival of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) patients treated with extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), as reported by the extra-corporeal life support organization (ELSO), remains unchanged at 50%. High-survival rates both with and without utilizing ECMO have been reported, fueling questions about the utility of ECMO support in this difficult population. This review looks at data from the Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Study Group and individual center reports, to evaluate the role of ECMO in CDH, focusing on defining the patients most likely to benefit, and discussing how those benefits can best be achieved...

BACKGROUND: Sudden cardiac arrest is a significant cause of death affecting approximately 25,000 people in Australia annually. METHODS: We present an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) with prolonged down time and recurrent ventricular arrhythmias treated with extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation. RESULTS: The patient survived to hospital discharge with good neurological outcome. CONCLUSION: The patient's excellent outcome was a result of immediate good quality CPR, high level premorbid function, reversible cause of arrest and rapid access to an ECMO centre...

The immense increase of patients treated with extra corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in the last few years, along with the uncertainty of outcomes as well as the lack of clarity on the intended treatment direction, these situations which are considered by some to be just delaying of death and even worse than death. These circumstances create disagreements among surrogates, and between health care providers and surrogates, and emerge unique ethical challenges about the use of this new technology. In this article we discuss these challenging questions...

BACKGROUND: Mechanical circulatory support is a common practice nowadays in the management of patients after cardiogenic shock due to myocardial infarction. The single or combined use of one or more devices for mechanical support depends not only on the advantage or disadvantage of these devices but also on the timing of use of these devices before the development of multi organ failure. In our case we used more than one tool for mechanical circulatory support during the prolonged and complicated course of our patient with postcardiotomy cardiogenic shock after coronary artery bypass surgery...

Pharmacologic challenge with sodium channel blockers is part of the diagnostic workout in patients with suspected Brugada syndrome. The test is overall considered safe but both ajmaline and flecainide detain well known pro-arrhythmic properties. Moreover, the treatment of patients with life-threatening arrhythmias during these diagnostic procedures is not well defined. Current consensus guidelines suggest to adopt cautious protocols interrupting the sodium channel blockers as soon as any ECG alteration appears...

BACKGROUND: Extra corporeal life support (ECLS) is presently first line therapy for refractory cardiogenic shock. Mobile circulatory support teams implant ECLS or extra corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in patients in the hospital without circulatory support. These patients are then transported to specialized centers. Here we report a case of sending a mobile circulatory support team abroad, followed by air ambulance evacuation, which, to our knowledge, has never been used as part of medical assistance abroad...

Invasive aspergillosis rarely involves the thoracic aorta, and is associated with a poor prognosis. A heart-transplanted 56-year old patient presented with invasive aspergillosis, primary aspergillus aortitis, and ruptured thoracic aorta pseudoaneurysm. Open surgery was not possible due to severe sepsis. A sequential surgical strategy was therefore decided, including emergency thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair, followed by antifungal treatment, and definitive open repair with explantation of the endograft and placement of a cryopreserved arterial allograft under extra-corporeal membrane oxygenator support...

CONTEXT: Yew intoxication has been known for many years; high dose ingestion of Taxus baccata leads to cardiac toxicity mediated by calcium and sodium channel blocking properties. We present a case report of a patient who attempted suicide after T. baccata ingestion, causing refractory cardiogenic shock requiring temporary circulatory assistance by veno-arterial extra corporeal membrane oxygenation (VA ECMO). CASE DETAILS: A 28-year-old man was admitted to the critical care unit of a university hospital for arrhythmia after ingestion of self-made T...

AIMS: Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in veno-arterial configuration represents an increasingly used method for circulatory support. ECMO in cardiogenic shock offers rapid improvement of circulatory status and significant increase in tissue perfusion. Current evidence on the use of ECMO in cardiogenic shock remains insufficient. The aim of the ECMO-CS trial is to compare two recognized therapeutic approaches in the management of severe cardiogenic shock: early conservative therapy and early implantation of veno-arterial ECMO on the background of standard care...

BACKGROUND: A small tube may facilitate tracheal intubation and improve surgical access. We describe our initial experience with the Tritube(®) that is a novel cuffed endotracheal tube with a 2.4 mm internal diameter. METHODS: The Tritube(®) was used in seven adult Ear-Nose-and Throat surgical patients with airway narrowing or whose surgical access was facilitated by this small-bore endotracheal tube. Ventilation through Tritube(®) is performed with the manually operated Ventrain(®) -ventilator that allows active suctioning during expiration, therefore facilitating normoventilation through small diameter airways...

BACKGROUND: The use of veno-venous extra corporeal membrane oxygenation (VV ECMO) for acute respiratory failure/distress syndrome (ARF/ARDS) has increased since 2009. Specialized units for patients requiring VV ECMO are not standard and patients are often cohorted with other critically ill patients. The purpose of this study was to report the outcome of adult patients admitted in 2015 to the LRU, which, to our knowledge, is the first intensive care unit in the United States that has been specifically created to provide care for patients requiring VV ECMO...

RDS is the result of a wide variety of disorders, which can be associated with different clinical disorders or systemic diseases directly affecting the lungs. Currently, the only existing therapy is limited to supportive care. In a 6-hour pilot study, we analyzed the use of the combination of both stem cell and ECMO strategies to prevent or treat severe lung injury. A total of 11 sheep were used. 5 sheep received E. coli endotoxin as a control group (Group 1). 3 sheep that received E. coli endotoxin were treated with veno-venous ECMO support in Group 2...

The vast expansion of patients treated with of extra corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) emerge novel ethical questions about the use of this new technology. In regard the indications, duration of support and timing of withdrawal of support, these questions sometimes create disagreement among surrogates, between health care team and surrogates, and even disagreement among health care team, these disagreements occurs because of the extreme emergency of support initiation, the ambiguity of the outcome as well as lack of clarity on the intended treatment direction, whether it is ineffective, bridge to recovery or bridge to lifetime mechanical support or transplant...

Extra corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a life-saving technique to manage refractory cardiopulmonary failure. Its usage and indication continue to increase. Femoral venoarterial ECMO (VA ECMO) is relatively less invasive and the cardiac support may be more rapidly instituted in in these extremely tenuous patients. Vascular injuries and limb ischemia unfortunately occur in these emergent access settings. Here we will discuss the optimal techniques of preventing this complication which might affect patient survival and impact the patient quality of life...

We describe a case of severe refractory hypoxemia requiring prolonged extra corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) support in a case of postpartum acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The clinical course was marked by persistently poor lung compliance and several complications of ECMO, that is, significant hemolysis, hemothorax, and intracranial bleeding. We report marked improvement of lung mechanics and respiratory function, leading to accelerated separation from ECMO, following rescue administration of low dose methylprednisolone 24 days after the onset of ARDS...

The usual indications for extra corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) are for respiratory or cardiac failure. Although continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) is frequently used when patients are on ECMO, the need for CRRT as the primary indication for ECMO is rare. A case of a neonate placed onto veno-venous ECMO for the use of CRRT to treat hyperammonemia from propionic acidemia is presented.

Centrifugal pumps are considered to be less destructive to blood elements (1) when compared to roller pumps. However, their large prime volumes render them unsuitable as arterial pumps in heart lung machine (HLM) circuitry for children. In November of 2014, the circuit at Arnold Palmer Hospital, a Biomedicus BP-50 with kinetic assist venous drainage (KAVD) and 1/4″ tubing was converted to a roller pump in the arterial position with gravity drainage. Vacuum-assisted venous drainage (VAVD) was mounted on the HLM as a backup, but not used...
