Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation

Vital life support when you need it.

Extracorporeal life support (ECLS), also known as Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO), provides extended cardiac and respiratory support to persons whose heart and lungs cannot adequately function to sustain life.

For nearly two decades, CCS has remained at the forefront of ECLS/ECMO innovation and service excellence. CCS can:

  • Fill urgent staffing gaps with highly qualified perfusionists.
  • Provide end-to-end ECLS/ECMO program development for hospital service expansion.
  • Deliver the highest level of perfusionist training/education.

ECLS/ECMO supports patients facing life-threatening situations, such as heart or lung failure due to illness, after cardiac surgery, or as a bridge for patients awaiting a lung transplant or heart assist device.
