Do you know the different therapy options of ECLS?
Stabilizing blood circulation and respiratory functions is crucial when treating acute care patients. Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) can do exactly that. These therapies have become a standard of care in recent years.
How can you benefit from an extracorporeal life support system?
With the rapidly deployable CARDIOHELP system, patients can receive portable, seamless heart-lung support at the bedside or in the field. Mechanical extracorporeal assist allows clinicians to gain valuable time. Quickly connect patients to a hand-held mechanical life support system anytime, anywhere.
Did you know that ECLS could be a life saver for ARDS patients?
Severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) continues to have still has a high mortality rate. Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) can be a good therapy option when standard therapies fail. The use of ECLS for adult ARDS has increased over the last decade. More and more specialized centers use perform ECLS today, and there are many reports available that confirm that ECLS therapies deliver improved outcomes for adult ARDS patients.
Cardiogenic Shock: The unresolved clinical challenge
Marko Noc, MD, PHD (Head, Center for Intensive Internal Medicine University Center Ljubljana), is talking about treatment of patients in Cardiogenic Shock.
Have a look at the interview.
How is extracorporeal membrane oxygenation used in interventional cardiology?
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a serious option in the cath lab that can improve survival. This expert session gives insights on basic ECMO support in cases of cardiogenic shock, and informs about new and future approaches of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.
The advantages of using a dual lumen catheter for cannulation in ECLS
Using a single-site, dual-lumen cannula for veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (v-v ECMO) offers several advantages over a two-catheter approach. A single cannula decreases blood recirculation, and encourages early patient mobilization and physiotherapy.
