Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Physical Training

Study Description

Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Physical Training

Critically ill patients who require extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) are the sickest in the hospital. More patients are surviving but survivors have compromised functional recovery for months or years. This trial aims to determine if early, physical training commenced within 48 hours of ECMO is feasible and improves muscle strength and functional status in patients compared to standard practice in a randomised controlled trial of 30 ICU patients.
