Come join us live at Baylor University Medical Center or virtual to learn about extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). ECMO uses advanced technology to provide temporary blood circulation and respiratory support in cases of life-threatening heart or lung failure while these organs recover from injury, illness or a surgical procedure. ECMO can also be used as a life-supporting, short-term bridge to a heart transplant or lung transplant. The machine replaces the function of the heart and lungs from a few hours up to multiple days, depending on the condition and progress.
