An editorial  with some interest for the cardiothoracic surgeon, in particular the awareness of changes in the right vantricle during ECMO support , mostly drawn from the recent Covid experiences, and with a useful paragraph on veno-pulmonary arterial ECMO, discussing the uncoupling of RV and PA.

The Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists created an expert consensus statement intended to help anesthesiologists manage adult patients receiving ECMO who are cared for in the operating room.  This two-part consensus document may serve as a helpful reference for cardiothoracic surgeons, intensivists and all who engaged in the care of ECMO pati
