ECMO: One of the most advanced forms of life support

Dr. Jeff DellaVolpe, Director of the ECMO program at Methodist Hospital, explains that Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) is one of the most advanced forms of life support available to patients experiencing acute failure of the cardio-respiratory system. As the largest provider of ECMO in South Texas, our program has given a second chance at life to hundreds of patients of all ages facing 100% mortality, just like Justin Moreno, an ECMO patient.
