Between January, 1981, and May, 1985, 33 infants suffering from acute cardiorespiratory failure were treated with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) when all other forms of conventional management had failed. Only the patients with respiratory failure that was thought to be reversible were treated. Prolonged conventional respiratory management (more than five days) was considered a contraindication to ECMO support because of irreversible damage to the lungs caused by the barotrauma associated with conventional ventilation. Eighteen of the 33 patients (54%) survived and were discharged from the hospital. Patients with congenital diaphragmatic hernia had a high incidence of fatal bleeding complications (8 of 14). Good results were obtained in the newborns with persistent fetal circulation and meconium aspiration syndrome. We conclude that ECMO markedly improves the survival of newborns with severe respiratory failure who would have a mortality close to 100% with conventional respiratory management.
