Indications and outcomes The decision to support a patient with ECMO is based on the severity of cardiopulmonary dysfunction, the response to conventional therapy, as well as patient and family preferences for the aggressiveness of treatment. Indeed, patient and family preferences for the duration of aggressive critical care must be considered, and honest explanations of ECMO outcomes must be provided. Unfortunately, the data necessary to predict patient outcomes on long-term ECMO support remain limited. Instead, case series and case reports guide much of the decision-making, and key examples are described later. When supporting a patient with severe respiratory failure with ECMO, clinicians must consider strategies for decannulation, which currently include patient recovery and lung transplantation. Despite increased acceptance of ECMO as a long-term therapy, it is currently unable to support patients outside of the intensive care unit ICU , and does not allow for patients to return to activities of daily living. The ideal scenario for these patients is a full recovery, and there are increasing reports of patients recovering from long-term ECMO support for severe respiratory failure.
Absence of severe acidosis and still acceptable end-tidal CO2 may represent additional elements for patient selection in this setting.
The absence of severe cardiac or co-morbidities prior to surgery and the expected temporary impairment of the cardio-respiratory systems represent additional indications for post-cardiotomy ECMO. Indications may derive from refractoriness of cardio-circulatory impairment to conventional therapies drug and IABP.
Moreover, in this setting, advanced age and severe co-morbidities may represent relative contraindications. Furthermore, in this field, the potential for cardiac recovery or the possibility to bridge the patient to other treatments, if recovery is considered unlikely, represents indication for ECMO use.
Finally, a developing indication might be prophylactic VA-ECMO in critically ill patients undergoing either cardiac surgery or interventional cardiological procedures. In these patients, in whom post-procedural severely complicated course is expected, timely and pre-crash support may help to provide a smooth peri-procedural period.
Short-time controlled support of cardio-circulatory system and peripheral organ perfusion, with avoidance of metabolic and hemodynamic derangement, may also affect emergency VA-ECMO implant should patient deterioration occur, and allow a better complicated patient management with better final outcome.

Froehlich Travel Award was established to support individuals with limited financial resources who are committed to medical education and to improving ECMO care. This is an annual award.
This decision was based upon the misguided belief that cannulation site was associated with patient acuity and the necessary consumption of hospital resources. Using the ELSO Registry, financial data from several leading centers, as well as projections on the impact to hospitals and patients, we were able to recruit 15 additional specialty societies to join our cause.
CMS acknowledged the importance of your ELSO Registry data which contradicted the presence of any relationship between cannulation site and acuity. We thank you for your tireless efforts and meticulous attention to detail in making our Registry effective in quality assurance, research, education, and patient advocacy.
