Earlier in June, a Covid19-positive patient with severe respiratory failure was connected to the ECMOLIFE System at the San Matteo Hospital, Pavia (Italy).
The patient, under VV-ECMO support, was kept under treatment for several days without the need to replace any disposable part, with the oxygenator that demonstrated more than adequate performances through the entire duration of the treatment.
The users were deeply impressed by the machine performances, welcomed the simplicity of the circuit set up and priming, and the user friendliness of the software.
As a last point of note, the device’s versatility was highly esteemed, particularly the possibility to position the oxygenator, by means of its plate, on the trolley’s side bars.
This successful first experience in a reference ECMO-center and on a critically ill Covid19 patient speaks about ECMOLife unique features and benefits and ease of use.
