Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation
The Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) Program at Johns Hopkins Children's Center provides critical support for infants and children with a life-threatening illness or injury. ECMO is a life-saving heart and lung bypass system that takes over the functions of these organs, allowing physicians time to diagnose and treat critically ill or injured children and enabling their organs to heal.
The multidisciplinary ECMO team consists of highly trained respiratory therapists, perfusionists and intensivists. These specialists, along with other caregivers, treat patients receiving ECMO in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) at the Hopkins Children’s Center.
