At Ezyhealthcare, patient safety is our utmost priority. While E.C.M.O. offers life-saving potential, it is important to be aware of potential risks and take necessary precautions. These include:

Bleeding

Blood thinning during E.C.M.O. may increase the likelihood of bleeding from various body sites. It is crucial to closely monitor patients to detect and address any serious bleeding, particularly within the brain, lungs, or cannulas.

Kidney Failures

In rare cases, insufficient blood supply to the kidneys during the procedure may lead to acute renal failure. To sustain kidney function, we provide specialized machine-assisted filtration, enabling the kidneys to continue their vital role in the body.

Infection

The presence of tubes within the body poses a risk of infection as they provide an entry point for germs to enter the bloodstream. We rigorously adhere to stringent infection control protocols, minimizing the risk and ensuring the highest standards of care.

Leg Damage

E.C.M.O. support may impair blood flow, potentially causing damage to leg tissues and interfering with normal leg function. In severe cases, surgical intervention, including partial leg removal, may be necessary. Our medical team maintains constant vigilance to prevent such complications and promptly addresses them if they arise.

Stroke

During E.C.M.O. support, the increased blood flow required by the brain may lead to the formation of small blood clots, which can result in a stroke. Our team is diligent in closely monitoring patients to promptly identify any signs of stroke and take immediate action to minimize its impact.
