When your heart and lungs need support and other measures, like a ventilator (breathing tube), are not enough, the Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) machine is here to help. ECMO is a portable heart-lung support machine meant for long-term use.

With dedication, partnership, and teamwork, we recently placed a patient on temporary ECMO, as was necessary for transfer. This was the first time any hospital in the Rio Grande Valley had been able to transport a patient on ECMO without relying on a third-party service from another part of the country. 

Medical Director of the ECMO Program Dr. Andrew Phillips explains, “It is the most sophisticated life-support technology in the world, and the device used here at DHR Health is the most advanced and proven device found anywhere.”
