ABSTRACT
In this article, the author comments on the article "The use of percutaneous ECMO support as a 'bridge to bridge' in heart failure patients: a case report." The author says that doctors keep a fully functioning primary console as a backup along with an additional motor and a flow probe when doing a surgery on heart failure patients. The author further says that a perfusionist would not be there if this device was just placed in a ventricular assist position as a CentriMag.
