Monitoring and Diagnostics

This resource reviews basic common troubleshooting for VV ECMO. Issues range from expected complications requiring monitoring (e.g. rising transmembrane pressure) to immediately life-threatening emergencies that require urgent action (air embolism, oxygenator failure, etc). Understanding what can go wrong, and how emergent any of these issues are, is critical in managing people on ECMO.
