Children's offers several types of ECMO treatments to meet your child's needs, including:
Based in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, this team provides life support to newborns for whom other therapies have failed.
Pediatric Respiratory ECMO
For children 28 days to 18 years old who are suffering from acute respiratory failure.
For children whose heart cannot pump enough blood to keep them alive, either before heart surgery or after bypass surgery.
Continous Renal Replacement Therapy
This treatment is used when patients are experiencing severe renal failure and their bodies are not removing urine and other waste products correctly.
Our team performs ongoing research to improve the quality of care delivered to children requiring ECMO, and ultimately to reduce the need for ECMO.
