How To Place a Patient on Veno-Venous ECMO
This video shows how to place a patient on veno-venous ECMO. The author uses an Avalon catheter inserted into the right jugular vein. The Avalon catheter has an inflow lumen that takes blood from the IVC and SVC, and an outflow lumen that delivers blood towards the tricuspid valve. In this video, the author demonstrates the insertion of the Avalon catheter and the commencement of ECMO support.
This procedure was performed at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle, UK. The procedure was performed by Mr. Stephen Clark, a Consultant Cardiothoracic and Transplant surgeon.
