  1. 1. Platelet protection during ECMO. In vitro studies

    Author : Maria Skogby; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : ECMO; platelet activation; nitric oxide; epoprostenol; Nafamostat mesilate;

    Abstract : Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a complex technique for providing life support in severe respiratory and cardiac failure. ECMO is however associated with several side effects where bleeding complications are frequently observed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mechanical Circulatory Support in Left Ventricular Heart Failure

    Author : Petter Schiller; Laila Hellgren; Anders Jönsson; Göran Dellgren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mechanical Circulatory Support; Left Ventricular Heart Failure; Left Ventricular Assist Device; Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation; ECMO; Thorax Surgery; Thoraxkirurgi;

    Abstract : Short-term mechanical circulatory support (MCS) with ventricular assist devices or veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA ECMO) has become the standard treatment in patients with cardiogenic shock unresponsive to pharmacological treatment. However, the haemodynamic effects of these devices are not yet fully described, nor are their effects on ventricular function and myocardial recovery. READ MORE

  3. 3. Platelet activation and cytokine release during experimental extracorporeal circulation

    Author : Katrin Adrian; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : ECMO; blood-biomaterial interaction; platelets; platelet activation; cytokines; systemic inflammatory response;

  4. 4. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) for the treatment of cardiogenic shock : identification of pre-implant outcome predictors

    Author : Thomas Fux; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Background: Refractory cardiogenic shock (RCS), cardiac arrest (CA) and postarrest cardiogenic shock (CS) are associated with high mortality. Venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) is increasingly used and can offer acute cardiopulmonary life support in this critically ill population but selection of VA-ECMO candidates remains challenging.

  5. 5. Advanced radiological imaging in patients treated with Extracorporeal Memebrane Oxygenation

    Author : Marika Lidegran; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ECMO; computed tomography; magnetic resonance imaging; acute respiratory distress syndrome; thorax; abdomen; intracranial hemorrhage; cerebral infarction; follow-up;

    Abstract : Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is the use of a modified heart-lung machine to support life during severe acute cardiac and/or respiratory failure. Patients on ECMO are at high risk for complications due to the severe underlying disease and to the ECMO procedure itself. READ MORE
