Extracorporeal Oxygen Delivery and Life Support in Neonatal Respiratory Failure
Most of the variables which influence oxygen delivery and oxygen consumption are controlled during extracorporeal circulation, hence it is appropriate to include this topic in the Steglitz Symposium. In fact, extracorporeal circulation is an exercise in applied physiology of oxygen kinetics. Whether in the laboratory or at the bedside the physiologist or physician can address problems which can not be solved in any other way. Prolonged extracorporeal circulation has been described by the acronym ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation), but this represents only one of the variables. Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) is a better term, describing oxygen exchange, CO2 exchange, perfusion, and temperature control.
