Collapse 2019 ECMO: Who Would Ever Have Imagined?

The technologic and management aspects of extracorporeal life support (ECLS), including extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), have advanced more in the past five years than any other aspect of critical care medicine. ECLS devices are smaller, simpler, and safer than just a few years ago. The application of this technology has led to these critically ill patients being maintained awake and, in some circumstances, even ambulatory. This presentation will provide an overview of the history of ECLS and ECMO, discuss the current state of the field, and explore the potential future applications of this life-saving technology.
