Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is used as a support device for use in heart failure. ECMO is a miniaturized and simplified form of heart-lung machines. ECMO involves withdrawing venous blood with an active pump and returning oxygenated blood into a major central artery. ECMO is primarily used for patients who need cardiac and lung support. ECMO is divided into three types: veno-arterial (VA), veno-venous (VV) and arteriovenous (AV). VA is used for support during cardiac failure. The blood is drained from a large central vein, into an oxygenator and re-enters the arterial system at the aorta. VA is generally done as a bridge to left ventricular assist device replacement. VV is the most common mode of ECMO done and is generally utilized for support during respiratory failure. VV is not used for cardiac failure and is a bridge to lung transplant.

Abstract
The ECMO market includes disposable products and capital equipment. ECMO products have been in the market for a long time but have only recently started gaining traction. ECMO has experienced a reinvigoration due to positive reports and the stagnation of heart-lung machines in the market. The market is expected to grow as more surgeons view the technique as a better alternative to heart-lung machines.
