Dr. Preetha Joshi | Dr. Vinay Joshi: ECMO Treatment to treat 2.5 month old infant

    Extracorporeal Membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is the only life-saving technology available to support and rest organs in case of organ failure- heart, lungs etc

    Last month, we treated an infant 2 and a half month old-  on ECMO-first of its kind in the country and the baby is going home.

    We are at present treating a 9 yr old with ECMO and CRRT in a case of ARDS with multiorgan failure.

    This has been achieved due to team effort by the entire PCICU, PICU team and especially Pediatric Cardiac surgeons, Perfusionists (who are working round the clock), the intensivists and the nursing team.
