The Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO) is an international consortium of health care professionals and scientists who are dedicated to the development and evaluation of novel therapies for support of failing organ systems. Crucial is the promotion of a broad multidisciplinary collaboration. The primary mission of the Organization is to maintain a registry of, at least, use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in active ELSO centers. As appropriate, registries of other novel forms of organ system support are within the purview of ELSO. Registry data is to be used to support clinical research, support regulatory agencies, and support individual ELSO centers. ELSO provides educational programs for active centers as well as for the broader medical and lay communities

New Website Launched - Instructions

ELSO has recently migrated this website to a new platform. If you find any issues or anything that needs to be tweaked, please contact prycus@umich.edu with those issues. You can login with your data entry login.


Due date for entering data is June 14th, 2015 in order to be included in the biannual reports.

To signify that a record is complete and should be included in your center data use the "Completed By" field which can be found on the last page of the run information.  Leave this field blank if the record is not yet ready to be included.  Enter a name when you are ready to have this run counted.  The name used is the one ELSO can contact for questions on the run.  Treat this field as your "Submit to ELSO" button.

Please review the records you have previously entered using the online data entry system to be sure the "Completed By" field has a name if you are ready to submit and does NOT have a name if the data is not ready to submit.  To see all your records click on "ELSO Registry" on the left hand side of the screen.

Remember a record becomes locked one month after you enter the data for the first time.  If you need to unlock any records please just let me know.
