Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To evaluate the clinical outcomes of patients with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) subjected to prone positioning before extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO).

DESIGN:

A retrospective analysis of a multicenter cohort was carried out.

SETTING:

Patients admitted to the Intensive Care Units of 11 hospitals in Korea.

PATIENTS:

Patients were divided into those who underwent prone positioning before ECMO (n=28) and those who did not (n=34).

INTERVENTIONS:

None.

VARIABLES OF INTEREST:

Thirty-day mortality, ECMO weaning failure rate, mechanical ventilation weaning success rate, mechanical ventilation-free days at day 60.

RESULTS:

The prone group had lower median peak inspiratory pressure and lower median dynamic driving pressure before ECMO. Thirty-day mortality was 21% in the prone group and 41% in the non-prone group (p=0.098). The prone group also showed a lower ECMO weaning failure rate, and a higher mechanical ventilation weaning success rate and more mechanical ventilation-free days at day 60. In the non-prone group, median dynamic compliance marginally decreased shortly after ECMO, but no significant change was observed in the prone group.

CONCLUSIONS:

Prone positioning before ECMO was not associated to increased mortality and tended to exert a protective effect.
