Patients with accidental hypothermia without vital signs increasingly receive venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO). However, there is limited knowledge regarding the efficacy of this advanced rewarming method. We aimed to determine whether VA-ECMO improved outcomes in patients with accidental hypothermia without vital signs, using a large nationwide inpatient database in Japan.

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation is used in severe acute respiratory distress syndrome; whereas the long-term complications among survivors of acute respiratory distress syndrome treated without ex...
To describe the results of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in patients undergoing heart surgery and analyze the risk factors for morbidity and mortality.
There is uncertainty whether venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) should be used in the elderly with cardiopulmonary failure after cardiac surgery.
Postoperative severe cardiopulmonary failure carries a high rate of mortality. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) can be used as a salvage therapy when conventional therapies fail.
Our objective was to evaluate the association of bridge to transplant (BTT) extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) on survival after lung transplantation (LTx) and determine the degree to which tr...
A multicenter, prospective, controlled, randomized (moderate hypothermia 33°C≤ T°C ≤34°C) during 24 hours ± 1h versus normothermia (37°C ± 0.3 °C), comparative open trial will be ...
Serum Potassium Rate (PR) is a key indicator for medical management of patients with accidental hypothermia particularly for hypothermia related cardiac arrest (CA). Experts recommend a c...

The main purpose of the present study is to investigate the risk factors that affect drug pharmacokinetic (PK) during extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). To advance understanding o...
Our primary aim is to describe platelet function in adult patients treated with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). A clarification of the platelet function in these critically ill...
Application of heat to correct hypothermia, accidental or induced.
Lower than normal body temperature, especially in warm-blooded animals; in man usually accidental or unintentional.
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.
Abnormally low BODY TEMPERATURE that is intentionally induced in warm-blooded animals by artificial means. In humans, mild or moderate hypothermia has been used to reduce tissue damages, particularly after cardiac or spinal cord injuries and during subsequent surgeries.
