Info for Patients

The ECMO Program is dedicated to supporting our patients and their families.  In alignment with the UMMC Patients and Families directive, our program has compiled a variety of information to better meet your needs.

When you have a loved one on ECMO, it is a very stressful time for everyone.  To better help understand how your loved one is being supported, please look at our Guides for ECLS compiled and authored by our Senior ELS Specialist Elaine Cooley. They are divided by adult, pediatric, and neonatal.

Some of our patients have the diagnosis of Congenital Diaphramatic Hernia.  One website to investigate for information and support is CHERUBS- The Association of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Research, Advocacy, and Support.
