The article presents a case study of 70 year-old woman who developed acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) five days after lung surgery for cancer. Further, she developed severe respiratory acidosis and was treated by a pumpless extracorporeal lung assist system. It says that studies on the effects of extracorporeal systems on the accuracy of cardiac output measurement are limited. It also presents clinical data regarding hemodynamic variables in the patient during the treatment.
