ECMO offers an acceptable cardiopulmonary support in adults with similar hospital survival rates as other mechanical support. It is versatile and salvages some patients, who may otherwise die. Improvement in intermediate term outcome will require multidisciplinary approach to protect organ function and limit organ injury during this support.

ECMO and Acute MI
