Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation treatment for a patient with life-threatening asthma
This is a case report of a young male with life-threatening asthma presenting hypercapnia and respiratory acidosis despite mechanical ventilation and intense broncholytic medication. He was treated with venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VV-ECMO) through a double-lumen catheter placed in the right jugular vein. This patient, as well as two other comparable patients, improved respiratory and circulatory within 3 h of VV-ECMO treatment. Smaller low-flow ECMO devices for CO2 removal are emerging but attention should be kept on the fact, that they are not capable of oxygenation.
