. Resuscitation 2010; 81: 968-73.
Given the rapid expansion of extracorporeal life support
(ECLS) worldwide and possible survival benefits in children, more studies in this field are in demand.
HMC's extracorporeal life support
program is ranked among the best in the region, a distinction that Dr.

and early invasive assessment compared to standard of care.

The weaning protocol can be performed as recommended by extracorporeal life support
organization (ELSO) guidelines (https://www.elso.org): ECMO flows are decreased in steps to a minimum of 1 L/min while maintaining sweep at 100%.
In cases of fulminant course with cardiogenic shock, extracorporeal life support
may be the only treatment to overcome acute heart failure .
Extracorporeal life support
(ECLS) is a general terminology used to describe support of cardiac or pulmonary function with a mechanical device.
IN PREGNANT WOMEN with acute respiratory distress syndrome, extracorporeal life support
can be effective and safe for both the mother and fetus, according to a meta-analysis of 332 articles published in the Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery (2016;151:1154-60).
