Brief Summary:
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.

Condition or disease
ECMO and Acute MI

Detailed Description:
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is an established treatment option in patients with Cardiogenic Schock. We retrospectively reviewed early and mid-term outcome as well as predictors of survival during using ECMO. This report reviews our experience with this support system in last 3 years.
