1] nursed adult rats in PFC liquid to investigate the temperature control possibilities of their ‘liquid incubator’. They found that the temperature of rats two-thirds submerged in FC-43 was readily controlled and manipulated by changing the temperature of the FC-43. In a small experimental pilot study, Davies et al. [2] explored the possibility of using wholebody immersion in PFC to provide some degree E F B A C A D Fig. 1. A lamb immersed in PFC liquid (B) circulated – via inlet and outlet pipes (A) – with an external pump and heater.

Percutaneous coronary intervention has, of course, revolutionized the management of acute cardiogenic shock from coronary occlusion. LVADs have come into frequent use in heart transplant centers as a bridge to transplant, and the current generation of devices is now even approved as destination therapy [30]. Other mechanical support devices in early clinical application or development, such as the total artificial heart, are encouraging [31]. Understanding of ventricular remodeling and Herlihy и Loyalka и Connolly и Kar и Gregoric heart recovery from injury has also come a long way since the early days when damaged heart tissue was thought to be adynamic and fixed in dysfunction [31, 32].

In addition to the equipment for ECMO a dedicated team of specialists experienced in ECMO is recommended. ELSO recommends that institutions perform 20 cases a year to achieve and maintain optimal skill levels. The team should include: perfusionists, for continual maintenance and monitoring of the ECMO system; interventionalists, for catheter placement; pulmonologists and respiratory therapists, to monitor lung injury and maintain appropriate ventilator settings; cardiologists, to monitor and manage central hemodynamics, hematologists, to help for anticoagulation, and to monitor for coagulopathy, thrombocytopenia and bleeding complications; nephrologists, to monitor and manage renal function and volume status; infectious disease specialists, to monitor the many potential sources or infections and to treat such early and aggressively; nutritionists, to prevent malnutrition; potentially neurologists, to asses neurologic change; and of course, the bedside 23 ICU nurse, whose array of assessment, intervention and communication skills make it all work.
