Abstract

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) therapy can be used to rescue patients who develop respiratory failure with acute myeloid leukaemia. We describe a unique case of rapid failure of an oxygenator on ECMO, secondary to high leukocyte count and cell lysis in an adult patient with acute myeloid leukaemia.
