Programs

Children's offers several types of ECMO treatments to meet your child's needs, including:

  • Neonatal ECMO
    Based in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, this team provides life support to newborns for whom other therapies have failed.
  • Pediatric Respiratory ECMO
    For children 28 days to 18 years old who are suffering from acute respiratory failure.
  • Cardiac ECMO  
    For children whose heart cannot pump enough blood to keep them alive, either before heart surgery or after bypass surgery.
  • Continous Renal Replacement Therapy
    This treatment is used when patients are experiencing severe renal failure and their bodies are not removing urine and other waste products correctly.
  • Research  
    Our team performs ongoing research to improve the quality of care delivered to children requiring ECMO, and ultimately to reduce the need for ECMO.
