Criteria for ECCO2RECMO

i. Rapid failure of ventilatory support: immediate use of these techniques should be considered in those meeting the following criteria for a period >2h despite maximum intensive care:

PaO2 <6.7kPa

FIO2 1.0

PEEP >5cmH2O

ii. Slow failure of ventilatory support: consider use after 48h maximum intensive care for those meeting the following gas exchange and mechanical pulmonary function criteria for a period >12h:

PaO2 <6.7kPa PEEP >5cmH2O

PaO2/FIO2 < 11.2kPa TSLC <30ml/cmH2O at 10ml/kg inflation
