Episode 9: ECMO, what is it and is it coming to your lab?
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation or ECMO has made a resurgance in popularity and usage across the country. It has become minimized and mobile, removing a lot of barriers that kept it from being used previously. With tons of advantages and a tried and true history of being an effective tool for cardiogenic shock, the newer mobile units are really making a splash at smaller satellite community hospitals. My guest Jason Chan RN and ECMO PRN owner and operator walks us through what ECMO is and why the newer smaller units are making a significant difference in patient lives.
