I saw this discussion on the Perfusion.com Group FB page, and thought it merited a post here on ‘Surfes– to demonstrate how effective new media communication can be in real time.
Please feel free to add to the discussion 🙂
Post H1N1 with Bi lateral Pneumonia pt. On VV ecmo, today completes 15th day of support. X-ray showed no improvement.. Since two days we noticed a fibrin deposits at the Oxy inlet. Today was very obvious. Oxy performance getting affected. Post Oxy blood gases: Po2 162 Pco2 53..
What do you suggest, to stop the ecmo support or continue support and changing the oxygenator!!
