Respiratory ECMO for COVID-19
In March 2020, the United Kingdom was hit by the first wave COVID-19 outbreak. COVID-19-associated ARDS led to unprecedent numbers of referrals to ECMO services. Royal Brompton Hospital, one of the five NHS-commissioned ECMO centres, following NHS-modified inclusion/exclusion criteria during COVID-19 pandemic, retrieved and managed 52 respiratory ECMO patients with a 6-month survival of 84.6%. This presentation will review a single-centre experience in referrals, clinical progression and outcome of respiratory ECMO for COVID-19 patients.
