Abstract
Background: ECMO has been utilized for refractory cardiac and respiratory failure. Its outcomes were almost dismal if it were not utilized appropriately. Since July of 2010, we have developed new ECMO program in our institution and our outcomes have improved remarkably. Objective: We would like to share the current ECMO system, including technology and patient care, to optimize patient outcomes. Methods: New ECMO program consisting of standard cannulation technique (groin venous and arterial access with retrograde perfusion catheter for VA-ECMO, Avalon dual lumen cannula for VV-ECMO), standard circuit (closed crystalloid primed circuit, heparin coated tubing and cannulae, diffusion membrane hollow-fiver oxygenator and Rota flow centrifugal pump), standard monitoring system (upper extremity arterial line, cerebral and lower extremity tissue saturation monitoring and hemodynamic transesophageal echocardiography), monitoring by multidisciplinary providers (ICU RN, mid-level providers and intensivists), and weaning using standard protocol with hemodynamic transesophageal echocardiography. Results: Since the beginning of new ECMO program, a total of 94 ECMO (76 VA and 18 VV ECMO) procedures were performed. The mean age was 48 ? 13, of 53 male and 41 female patients. There were 30 salvage cases (post code). The overall ECMO survival rate was 55% (VA ECMO 51%, and VV ECMO 70%), and discharged from hospital in alive in 45%. Conclusion: The outcomes of new ECMO program are reasonable. The expansion of the ECMO program is expected.
