At that point, sweep is turned down, and eventually off, to see if gas exchange can be maintained by the ventilator alone, on nontoxic settings (as delineated above) that limit volutrauma and an FiO2 of 60% or less. 2 l/min/m2) and clinical markers of sufficient oxygenation, such as lactic acid level and organ function, while the pump flow is decreased. Blood flow of <2 l/min through the ECMO circuit can prompt stasis in the system, so that is the usual lower limit of pump flow in a wean trial.

Daviesa–c и Kimble R. , Australia Abbreviations PFC Perfluorocarbon CPAP Continuous positive airway pressure Given that there is potential for transcutaneous respiration in the extremely premature newborn infant, it has been proposed that immersion of these infants in PFC liquid will allow augmentation of gas exchange. This is possible because PFC liquid has an excellent oxygen- and carbon-dioxide-carrying capacity. Immersion in PFC may allow a spontaneously breathing infant to also achieve lung gas exchange with the combination of skin and lung gas exchange being sufficient to support life.

However, the degree of skin gas exchange achieved may be sufficient to augment that provided by more conventional means. Because some of the gas exchange is provided via the skin, less will be needed through the lungs. In the infant ventilated with conventional mechanical ventilation this will allow the use of lower pressures and smaller tidal volumes and decrease baro- and volutrauma and its sequelae. Other Uses of Immersion in PFC Apart from providing the capacity for skin gas exchange, immersion may have other advantages.
