Summary of "Rationale of Hemoadsorption during Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Support."

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and extracorporeal life support are increasingly used for treating various forms of shock, lung failure, protected interventions and life support including resuscitation. Most patients on ECMO are affected by a systemic inflammatory response caused by the underlying disease as well as the ECMO support itself, which contributes to vasoplegia, multi-organ failure, deterioration and death. Unfortunately, effective strategies for control of inflammation and related organ failure and shock on ECMO are lacking. Recently, a new polystyrene-based device for hemoadsorption, which aims to reduce excessive levels of inflammatory molecules such as interleukins, cytokines as well as damage- and pathogen-associated molecular patterns, has become available. Here we summarize the rationale, available data and technical aspects of polystyrene-based hemoadsorption during ECMO support, and give recommendations based on existing experience.

Hemolysis and Non-Hemorrhagic Stroke during Venoarterial Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation.

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...

Economic Evaluation of Venovenous Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation for Severe Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome.

Venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation is increasingly being used to support patients with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome, but its cost-effectiveness is unknown. We assessed the co...

Pediatric patients requiring extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in heart failure: 30-day outcomes; mid- and long-term survival. A single center experience.

Pediatric Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Mortality Is Related to Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Volume in US Hospitals.

Our objective was to examine extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) utilization and determine whether pediatric-specific and overall ECMO volumes are associated with mortality rates.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Support systems that provide assistance and encouragement to individuals with physical or emotional disabilities in order that they may better cope. Informal social support is usually provided by friends, relatives, or peers, while formal assistance is provided by churches, groups, etc.

Financial support of research activities.

Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.

The initial life support care of the severely injured patient.
