"Background
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is technology that has been used since the 1970s as a way of providingcardiac and respiratory support to patients who have potentially reversible causes of respiratory/cardiac failure. ECMO began in the neonate setting and quickly expanded to adult populations. (1) Today, EMCO is common practice in many ICU settings and is currently being used in select Emergency Departments across the U.S and internationally.
ECMO used in the emergent setting is more appropriately titled Extracorporeal Life Support (ECLS). Alternatively, ECMO used in the arresting patient has been termed Extracorporeal Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (ECPR).
The focus of this article will be on the initiation of ECLS and ECPR in the Emergency Department setting."
