Disclaimer

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.

Guidelines for ECMO in COVID-19 patients

ELSO has prepared an in-depth set of guidelines for ECMO in COVID-19 patients. These have been collaboratively developed by a global team of ECMO experts. The guidelines include: patient selection criteria, cannulation and decannulation strategies, transport on ECMO, PPE and staff protection strategies with ECMO, to ethical dilemmas and quality. ELSO wants to recognize the leadership of Kiran Shekar in chairing the development of these guidelines during a critical time.

ECMO Capacity Map

ELSO has developed a map that quickly shows ECMO capacity (map: https://www.elso.org/Membership/CenterMap.aspx). Center administrators can update the capacity here: http://www.elso.org/UpdateECMOCapacity) or from the Manage - Manage Center Details section. Please download a new app (search for: ELSO Update ECMO Capacity) on your mobile device for efficient capacity status communication, which should be available very soon.
