The ECMO (Extra-Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation) Program at Hopkins Children’s provides critical support for infants and children with a life-threatening illness or injury. ECMO is a heart and lung bypass system that takes over the functions of these organs, allowing physicians time to diagnose and treat critically ill or injured children, and enabling the organs to heal. Above are some of the conditions treated by our multidisiplinary ECMO team of respiratory therapists, perfusionists and intensivists.
