The Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO) is an international non-profit consortium of health care institutions 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

ELSO Family/Patient ECMO Education: Volunteers and Examples Needed!

A group of ELSO members has started developing educational material for patients and families.  Initial goal will be to have a family/patient education page on the ELSO website.  However, we hope this is just the beginning!  Examples of family/patient specific ECMO education from individual centers are also needed.  If you are interested in participating or willing to share educational material please contact Curt Froehlich at Froehlich@UTHSCSA.edu.  Any additional questions let us know.  Thanks for supporting ELSO.
