Publications Using Patient Data from the ELSO Registry

Many health organizations, medical journals and other publications have used patient data from the ELSO Registry to publish important articles on their findings. These articles help the ECMO and ECLS communities make decisions on patient care and treatment protocols. Here’s a roundup of recent publications that have used ELSO Registry data.

ANN ARBOR, MI - Sept. 25, 2020 - The Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO) announced today publication in The Lancet of registry findings examining the treatment of COVID-19 patients with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) support. The results show that for ECMO-supported patients with COVID-19, estimated in-hospital mortality 90 days after ECMO and mortality rates in those with a final disposition of death or discharge were under 40 percent.
