Abstract

The care of patients on extracorporeal corporeal oxygenation support takes a coordinated effort among the team of nurses, midlevel providers, perfusionists, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, and physicians. Attention on the details of the circuitry and its interactions with the patient, the resolution of the disease process and the ongoing plan of care, and unique issues in the intensive care unit are crucial for success.
