ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) is a cardiac or respiratory support which uses the principle of extracorporeal circulation (ECC). It consists of a pump generating an output as well as a membrane oxygenating blood and removing CO2. Thanks to an ECMO mobile team, expert caregivers can now perform the circulatory support in primary centers and then transfer patients under assistance to the referral center. After a brief summary of the two different anatomical approaches (veno-arterial and veno-venous) as well as their indications, the authors will share their experience of two transferred patients under ECMO to Geneva. Referral center and ECMO mobile team concepts will then be detailed focusing on the present situation in Switzerland.
