Welcome to ELSO!

 

What is ELSO?

The Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO) is an international non-profit consortium of health care centers and individuals who are dedicated to the development, evaluation and improvement of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and other innovative therapies for support of failing organ systems in the neonate, child and adult. ELSO is made up of a broad multidisciplinary collaboration of physicians, nurses, perfusionists, respiratory therapists, technicians, researchers, and industry experts. Global chapters of ELSO provide education and expertise in ECMO delivery around the world.

How Does ELSO Accomplish Its Mission?

ELSO serves the needs of patients and the extracorporeal support community through:

-Maintaining, since 1989, the world’s largest registry of data on patients receiving ECMO

-Using ELSO registry data to support clinical research, individual ELSO center quality assessment, and regulatory needs for ECMO

-Providing state-of-the art ECMO educational programs including expert didactics and hands-on simulation training around the globe

-Publishing the ELSO Red Book, the the definitive reference of physiology and clinical provision of ECMO

-Partnering with its global chapters (EuroELSO, Asia-Pacific ELSO, Latin American ELSO, and South and West Asia ELSO) to advance ECMO support internationally

-Hosting the annual ELSO Educational and Scientific Conference, in addition to supporting global chapter conferences

-Benchmarking delivery of institutional ECMO support through the ELSO Award of Excellence for centers (recognized by US News and World Report)
