MORTALITY rate of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients could be as high as 80%, if present with or develop fatal arrhythmia and cardiac arrest. Some patients, despite the treatment with inotropes and intra-aortic balloon pump, are not hemodynamically stable enough to undergo emergent revascularization. The use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) can help stabilize circulation and respiration, which could be a potential solution for patients under such critical circumstances. In this paper, we describe the application of ECMO for the resuscitations of 4 cardiac arrested AMI cases.
