Manual of Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) in the ICU

by Poonam Malhotra Kapoor

This book, Manual of Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) in the ICU, deals with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). It has come a long way from early days in 1970s when it was used for prolonged respiratory support in a case of post-traumatic acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Developing support technologies for severe acute respiratory or combined cardiorespiratory failure has been a journey of nearly half a century. The early technological barriers were seemingly insurmountable, with severe hemolysis, platelet activation and systemic inflammation limiting the initial applications to short periods of time. This comprehensive compendium of current information includes the fundamentals of ECMO equipment and physiology, practical steps in initiation and maintenance of support, monitoring and management of patients, and applications in a variety of clinical settings, including ‘new’ indications such as sepsis. It stands as an important resource in the hands of those dedicated to providing care for the most critically ill and injured.
