Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a promising adjunct to cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in refractory cardiac arrest (CA). Factors associated with outcome are incompletely characterised. The aim of our study was to identify pre-ECMO factors associated with in-hospital mortality after extracorporeal CPR (ECPR). Retrospective analysis of a prospective cohort of patients. Academic quaternary referral hospital. All patients who underwent ECPR from January 2012 through April 2017.
