UH Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital gains international recognition for ECMO treatment
Date:12/2/2008

The Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) Center at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital recently received the Excellence in Life Support Award from the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO). The ELSO is an international consortium of centers offering ECMO for support of failing organ systems in infants, children and adults.

The award recognizes centers demonstrating an exceptional commitment to evidence-based processes and quality measures, staff training and continuing education, patient satisfaction and ongoing clinical research. The ECMO Center at Rainbow is one of few centers across the country to receive the award since its creation in 2006.

ECMO is one of the most advanced forms of life support available to patients experiencing acute failure of the cardio-respiratory system. ECMO allows time for the patient's lungs or heart to heal by using a heart-lung machine to oxygenate and purify the blood outside the body over a period of time.

ELSO promotes ongoing research into the most effective treatment methods by maintaining a registry of patients receiving ECMO and providing educational programs for member centers and the broader medical communities. More than 115 international ECMO centers are members of ELSO, which is headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
