ECMO (Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation)

The ANZICS ECMO dataset has been developed with the aim of measuring ECMO activity and outcomes throughout Australia and New Zealand.

To ensure accurate benchmarking for this low volume intervention, every site undertaking ECMO is encouraged to participate. Information should be collected for all adult and paediatric patients who require ECMO, and for patients in whom there is an ECMO cannulation attempt, even if ECMO is not subsequently established.
