• refractory
  • The theory behind this invasive approach is that the artificial restoration of oxygenation and end-organ perfusion allows treating physicians more time to mitigate and reverse pathology which contributes to cardiac arrest and refractory shock. (wikipedia.org)
  • ventricular
  • Sufficient flows (median 4.24 L/min), oxygenation (median postcannulation PaO 2 315 mm Hg), and ventricular unloading confirmed with intraoperative transesophageal echocardiogram were achieved in all patients. (ovid.com)
  • cause
  • It stabilizes critical derangements of oxygenation and ventilation, allowing time to diagnose, treat, and recover from the underlying cause of organ failure. (springer.com)
