Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in myocardial failure after pediatric heart surgery

, : Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in myocardial failure after pediatric heart surgery. Revista Espanola de Anestesiologia Y Reanimacion 45(10): 436-440

In spite of progressive improvement not only in myocardial protection but also in anesthetic and surgical techniques, the repair of complex congenital heart defects can still lead to cardiopulmonary compromise refractory to conventional treatment. We describe two patients in whom successful surgical repair of congenital heart defects was followed by severe heart failure refractory to medical treatment. Both patients were managed by extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). We discuss the indications, contraindications and use of ECMO in the postoperative intensive care unit.

We present a fiber-optical sensor for distance measurement of smooth and rough surfaces that is based on white-light interferometry; the sensor measures the distance from the sample surface to the sensor head. Because white light is used, the meas...
