The article examines the effectiveness of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and its impact to the survivability of burn patients with refractory acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The author highlights the research that seeks to report ECMO usage in the medical practice for the treatment of patients with ARDS and preventing high risks of mortality in burn patients, and promote recommendations on the administration of ECMO.
