Extracorporeal Membranous Oxygenation in Warfare

POSTER: Extracorporeal membranous oxygenation (ECMO) can provide cardiac and respiratory support for patients whose heart and lungs cannot perform their functions adequately. This hi-tech equipment can be understood as being artificial heart and lungs, standing outside the patient, connected by tubing, helping patients to survive. The army knows this device. There are known case reports when wounded soldiers were placed on ECMO in the army hospital on the battlefield and then were transported to the military home hospital for long-term and intensive care. ECMO stabilized their circulation and oxygenation. Now the question has arisen whether the ECMO can save more lives of soldier-patients, closer to battlefields. The basic guidelines for seriously wounded soldiers on the battlefield that should be following: • Hemostasis - Stopping bleeding • Anesthesia • Fluid replacement • ECMO Installation, heparinization, ECMO initiation • Transport to the army hospital • Surgery or intensive care with ECMO in the army hospital
