Risk Factors Associated with 30-day Mortality for Out-of-Center ECMO Support

Risk Factors Associated with 30-day Mortality for Out-of-Center ECMO Support

Out-of-hospital extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) implantation and ECMO transport have become a growing field useful for emergent treatment of heart or lung failure with increasing number of centers launching such service.

This study was designed to present risk factors predicting 30-day mortality for patients receiving ECMO support in a newly launched ECMO retrieval service. From 01/2015 till 01/2017 28 consecutive patients received ECMO support in peripheral hospitals using a miniaturized portable Cardiohelp System for heart, lung or heart/lung failure as a bridge-to-decision as a part of our newly launched ECMO retrieval service.

Outcomes and predictors for 30-day mortality were presented. The mean age was 56 ± 15 (maximum 78) years.
