Abstract

A 71-year-old woman with noncardiogenic acute pulmonary edema early after having a coronary operation was treated with venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation for uncontrollable hypoxia. Adequate oxygenation was achieved, the rapid deterioriation of her condition was reversed, and ventilatory settings could be moderated. Two and a half days later, the patient was weaned from the system. At the time of this writing, the patient was in her sixth postoperative month and doing well. Details of this fairly simple but powerful technique are described.
