ECMO is a Bridge to Transplant

We have a successful bridge to transplant program that saves lives of people awaiting transplant. It utilizes a modified heart-lung machine that both oxygenates and pumps blood, which allows the heart and lungs to rest. This process is called extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). Our team has successfully used ECMO to help patients awaiting lung transplant survive when their lungs and/or heart aren’t working as they should.
