Predictors of survival in adults undergoing extracorporeal membrane oxygenation with severe infections
An institutional registry of ECMO patients was surveyed to determine predictors of survival among patients receiving ECMO in the presence of sepsis. Among 151 studied patients, pneumonia was the most common cause of sepsis. Mortality was predicted by advanced age, longer door-to ECMO times, gram-negative sepsis, and sepsis due to infections other than pneumonia.
