UAB Adult ECMO Program
Originally designed to provide heart-lung bypass support outside the body, Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) is now used by physicians to successfully treat patients of all ages with a variety of conditions including severe pneumonia, influenza, pulmonary hypertension, and heart and lung injuries. ECMO takes on the function of the heart and lungs by routing the patient’s blood into the machine where carbon dioxide is removed and oxygen is added. The blood is then pumped back into the body. This presentation features Enrique Diaz-Guzman Zavala, MD discussing the rapidly expanding role of ECMO in patient care.
