Behandling med ekstrakorporal membranoxygenering af akut lungesvigt hos voksne i Danmark

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisReviewForskningpeer review

Veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VV-ECMO) is an established treatment option in critically ill patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The overall mortality in patients with ARDS has fallen over the past 30 years. VV-ECMO for selected patients has contributed to this. In Denmark, VV-ECMO is centralised to Aarhus University Hospital and Rigshospitalet, as it is a complex multidisciplinary therapy. The treatment involves many specialities and personnel groups, all with special training and experience. This review presents the current literature in the ARDS and ECMO treatment.
