Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation improves outcomes of accidental hypothermia without vital signs: a nationwide observational study.

Summary of "Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation improves outcomes of accidental hypothermia without vital signs: a nationwide observational study."

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
