Urgent ECMO after cardiogenic shock admission could lower mortality

Delayed extracorporeal membrane oxygenation after hospital admission with cardiogenic shock was associated with increased in-hospital mortality, even among less acutely ill patients, researchers reported.
“Despite the array of temporary mechanical circulatory support devices developed to improve hemodynamics in patients with cardiogenic shock, none been proven to improve survival in cardiogenic shock populations. Among the common temporary mechanical circulatory support devices, the venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenator has been increasingly used because of its ability to
