Veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VV-ECMO) is usually performed in cases of severe respiratory failure in which conventional and advanced mechanical ventilation strategies are ineffective in achieving true lung-protective ventilation, thus triggering ventilatory-induced lung injury. If circulatory failure coexists, veno-arterial ECMO (VA-ECMO) may be preferred over VV-ECMO because of its potential for circulatory support. In VA-ECMO, the respiratory contribution is less effective and the complication rate is higher than in the VV configuration.

Abstract

Veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VV-ECMO) is usually performed in cases of severe respiratory failure in which conventional and advanced mechanical ventilation strategies are ineffective in achieving true lung-protective ventilation, thus triggering ventilatory-induced lung injury. If circulatory failure coexists, veno-arterial ECMO (VA-ECMO) may be preferred over VV-ECMO because of its potential for circulatory support. In VA-ECMO, the respiratory contribution is less effective and the complication rate is higher than in the VV configuration.
