Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The use of extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR) to resuscitate patients with refractory out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is increasing in the United States and the developed world. This approach to treatment is appealing, because it can restore prearrest levels of perfusion to the brain and vital organs while the cause of the arrest is addressed. In this article, the authors highlight current ECPR program development and discuss controversies.
