ECMO Program

The External Membrane Oxygenation program provides critical heart and lung support to a neonatal and pediatric patient population.

Our specialists receive highly individualized and comprehensive in-house training to work within various ICU settings. The ECMO team works with a 1:1 patient ratio, ensuring that our patients are closely monitored with 24/7 system management.

Experienced ECMO specialists are always in demand, and Registered Respiratory Therapists (RRTs) can train for this role through an extensive program of didactic and bedside work. Opportunity and research in this ECMO specialty continue to grow, providing unlimited career potential for people who want to work with an esteemed leader, UF Health, in this field.
