Abstract

We describe our experience of 30 consecutive children supported with ECMO and receiving 20 ppm of nitric oxide in the oxygenator of the ECMO circuit. Administration of nitric oxide into the ECMO circuit is safe and could potentially mitigate ischaemia reperfusion injury and end-organ dysfunction of children requiring mechanical support.
