Guides to ECLS
The following pages are meant to provide family and friends of patients with information to questions about ECLS. In the following pages, the term ECLS and ECMO are used interchangeably.
The family guides listed below are the actual booklets we give family and friends of patients at the University of Michigan Hospitals. We think you will find them informative and helpful. We encourage you to tell us what you think about these booklets. Your comments will help us to improve the quality of information we provide to other families. You will need Adobe® Acrobat® Reader to view the pdf files.
