Heartlink ECMO Centre

ECMO is short for extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation.  Glenfield Hospital is the largest ECMO centre in the UK and is the only centre that provides a 24/7 mobile ECMO service. Over the past five years they have moved over 200 patients on ECMO by road and by air. The Children’s Air Ambulance assists the ECMO team by flying them and their equipment by helicopter to the critically ill patient – saving vital time.
