Is There EVER a Role for Veno-Venous ECMO (VV-ECMO) in the Emergency Department?

Here is a case of a young man who presented to our Emergency Department in June, 2106 with profound anaphylaxis. This was a rare “CAN Intubate/CAN'T VENTILATE” scenario:

  1. Max Epinephrine
  2. Max antihistamines
  3. Max steroids
  4. Max ventilator

…and you still cannot ventilate. PaCO2 is going up. pH is going down.

What options do you have? Find out in this episode.

Here is the video produced by Sharp Memorial Hospital (@SharpHealthcare) about this case:
