BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE: Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) is being used increasingly across the world as a short-term life support for infants, children, and adults. As of 2014, over 4500 patients at over 200 centers world-wide were being treated with ECMO annually. The applications of ECMO range from patients with acute cardiac or pulmonary failure, to patients who are immediately post-op from lung or heart transplant/surgery. In reading the daily batch of ICU radiographs, the pediatric radiologist will often see ECMO cannulae amongst the tubes and lines. Many radiologists can acknowledge the presence of cannulae, but are often unfamiliar with the radiographic details of cannulae position and complications. Our goal is to educate pediatric radiologists on ExtraCorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) and the normal/abnormal appearance of radiographs of patients on ECMO.
