Experimental: intervention group: eCPR + CytoSorb
In addition to standard treatment in patients undergoing eCPR in the intervention group the CytoSorb removal column will be added to the ECLS-system (intervention: CytoSorb removal column in eCPR).
Device: Cytosorb removal column in eCPR
In addition to standard treatment in eCPR in the study group a CytoSorb removal column is added to the va-ECMO system for the prevention of post-cardiac arrest syndrome.
Active Comparator: control group: eCPR - CytoSorb
Patients in the control group will receive standard treatment established for eCPR patients on our ICU. This standard treatment includes, among others, targeted temperature management (TTM) for the first 72 hours. For the use of ECLS as well as TTM we are following well established standard operating procedures (control: standard eCPR (va-ECMO)).
Device: standard eCPR (va-ECMO)
Standard treatment in eCPR with a established va-ECMO system.
