The ECMO Book, 1st Edition
Establishes the context of ECMO in the care of critically ill patients (patient selection, indications, contraindications), progressing from basic science information through advanced ECMO concepts.
Explores physiologic fundamentals and builds on these concepts by applying them to extracorporeal support, equipping you with a sound framework for how those principles can be applied in the day-to-day management of patients with severe cardiac and respiratory failure.
Covers key topics such as blood flow titration, sweep gas titration, ventilator management on ECMO, and anticoagulation and bleeding management.
An eBook version is included with purchase. The eBook allows you to access all of the text, figures and references, with the ability to search, customize your content, make notes and highlights, and have content read aloud.
