Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation for Coronavirus Disease 2019-Induced Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome: A Multicenter Descriptive Study

From Critical Care Medicine. This study aims to summarize the clinical features, ECMO characteristics, and outcomes of patients with SARS-CoV-2 pneumonia receiving ECMO. The authors conclude ECMO might be an effective salvage treatment for patients with SARS27 CoV-2 pneumonia associated with severe ARDS. Severe CO2 retention and acidosis 28 prior to ECMO indicated a poor prognosis.
