Abstract

Advanced extracorporeal therapies have been successfully applied in the austere environment of combat casualty care over the previous decade. In this review, we describe the historic underpinnings of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, review the recent experience with both partial and full lung support during combat operations, and critically assess both the current status of the Department of Defense extracorporeal membrane oxygenation program and the way forward to establish long-range lung rescue therapy as a routine capability for combat casualty care.
