ECMO

Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO) was formed in 1989 at that time there were 18 institutions that provided this specialized service. In 2011 there were 211 ECMO centers. The UTMB ECMO program was started in 1987 by Dr. Joseph Zwischenberger. Since that time we have cared for 260 patients (neonatal, pediatric and adults) with 65% survival.
