How to Arrange ECMO Transport

If you have identified a patient appropriate for ECMO and your patient is stable for ground or air transportation, we can help facilitate this process.

If your patient is too unstable for transport, the UI Hospitals & Clinics ECMO program has the ability to come to the patient, place on ECMO, and transport the patient back to UI Hospitals & Clinics for care.
