Hemolysis, even at low levels, activates platelets to create a prothrombotic state and is common during mechanical circulatory support. We examined the association of low level hemolysis (LLH) and non-hemorrhagic stroke during venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA ECMO) support.

To investigate the effect of venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation on immune function of the spleen and reactive oxygen species during post-resuscitation in a porcine model.
We present the case of a primigravid patient, who developed cardiogenic shock during the early postpartum period in the setting of retained placenta, uterine atony, and hemorrhage. Focused cardiac ult...
The aim of the study is to compare a technique of pump-controlled retrograde trial off (PCRTO) to insertion of an arterio-venous (AV) bridge to conduct a trial from venoarterial extracorporeal membran...
The investigators objective is to assess the utility of renal biomarkers in predicting renal recovery following institution of Venoarterial Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (VA-ECMO). T...
To determine how venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) affects cerebral blood flow velocity (CBFV) measured by transcranial doppler (TCD), to determine whether specific c...
Mechanical ventilation, in spite of being a life-saving technique, can also induce lung injury (VILI) mediated by an inflammatory response, thus having a profound impact in the course of c...
Newborns and children with life-threatening heart and lung failure may require support with ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation). With ECMO, oxygen and carbon dioxide are exchanged a...
To determine the incidence and predictors of augmented renal clearance (ARC) in patients with hemorrhagic stroke.
A group of pathological conditions characterized by sudden, non-convulsive loss of neurological function due to BRAIN ISCHEMIA or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Stroke is classified by the type of tissue NECROSIS, such as the anatomic location, vasculature involved, etiology, age of the affected individual, and hemorrhagic vs. non-hemorrhagic nature. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp777-810)
The therapeutic intermittent administration of oxygen in a chamber at greater than sea-level atmospheric pressures (three atmospheres). It is considered effective treatment for air and gas embolisms, smoke inhalation, acute carbon monoxide poisoning, caisson disease, clostridial gangrene, etc. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992). The list of treatment modalities includes stroke.
A group of viral diseases of diverse etiology but having many similar clinical characteristics; increased capillary permeability, leukopenia, and thrombocytopenia are common to all. Hemorrhagic fevers are characterized by sudden onset, fever, headache, generalized myalgia, backache, conjunctivitis, and severe prostration, followed by various hemorrhagic symptoms. Hemorrhagic fever with kidney involvement is HEMORRHAGIC FEVER WITH RENAL SYNDROME.
Application of a life support system that circulates the blood through an oxygenating system, which may consist of a pump, a membrane oxygenator, and a heat exchanger. Examples of its use are to assist victims of smoke inhalation injury, respiratory failure, and cardiac failure.
Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a stroke.
