Many a times, we come across a situation when the lungs give up. At this point we just need to hang on and let the lungs heal themselves and get the "breathing space" they need. After all, they work for you 24/7 without any rest. This "breathing space" is easily provided by ECMO - Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation - or artificial lungs. They prove to be life saving till the original lungs gain momentum to work non-stop again or we transplant the old lungs. This modality is an innovation and we will take your doubts and questions on this topic today at 7:00 PM on Dr KK's Medtalks - Wednesdays with Dr. Viny Kantroo. We are proud to have Dr Ashish Jain, Associate Prof & Director, Critical Care Medicine, Mahatma Gandhi Medical College and Hospital, Jaipur, to be with us and discuss this topic.
