Abstract

This article resurrects a historical technique using a new technology by describing the results of a retrospective, observational, single-center study that investigated the effects of propofol compared with isoflurane sedation on patient outcomes after extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). No differences in patient outcomes were observed between the propofol and isoflurane groups. Nevertheless, the results of this study might improve our understanding of the effects of sedation on patient outcomes after ECMO and provide insight into the effects of spontaneous breathing during ECMO.
