Welcome to ELSO

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.


OUR VISION


Notice:

ELSO Center Renewal Information.All center registration is now online through our website. For our existing centers up to January 2018 all memberships were on calendar year and will expire December 31, 2018. Normally dues will be required prior to your center membership expiration. This year only the payments were extended past the expiration of your memberships which was December 31, 2017 because of the new renewal system. Several emails were sent out and many of you have renewed for 2018. On May 15th, 2018 if you have not paid your 2018 membership dues your center will become inactive and you will only be allowed to renew after logging into our website. You will not be able to access the data entry system, discussion board, etc. At this point there will be a late fee associated with the renewal as well. Later this year as your 2018 membership nears renewal you will get multiple emails reminding you to renew prior to December 31, 2018. If you have recently joined ELSO your membership will expire one year after you joined and emails will be timed appropriately.
