ABSTRACT
Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) was established in a newborn infant diagnosed with severe respiratory failure secondary to complex congenital heart disease. After 4 days of ECLS support in the intensive care unit, the infant was brought to the operating room for repair of the primary lesion. Due to concerns related to recurrent respiratory failure associated with blood contact to a new extracorporeal circuit, the existing ECLS circuit was modified for use in the operating room. This report describes the circuit modification steps and challenges related to running a modified ECLS circuit for cardiopulmonary support during cardiac surgery.
