The article discusses a study that examined the mobilization of patients during venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (vvECMO). Topics discussed include the use of vvECMO in patients with acute severe respiratory failure, potential side effects of mobilization during ECMO therapy, preventing cannula dislocation during mobilization and reasons for respiratory failure of the patients.

    In humans, arteriovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (AV-ECMO) is a life support technique capable to assume in part or totally lungs functions, when these are not able to promote appropriated hematosis. To know the viability of this method in dogs (Canis familiaris), the present study...
