Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) as a form of prolonged life support revolutionized the care of fulminant respiratory failure after being popularized in the 1970s. Indeed, it has become standard treatment of neonatal respiratory failure. Since that time, we have seen the body of evidence and the practice of ECMO expand to treat acute lung injury (ALI) and adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), with some centers reporting remarkable success.(Published: 13 August 2013)Citation: Mechanical Circulatory Support 2013, 4: 21599 - http://dx.doi.org/10.3402/mcs.v4i0.21599
