Acute lung injury and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) from aspiration pneumonia can lead to severe hypoxemia, disability in pulmonary function, and increased mortality rates from (increase from 30% to 60%).Veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VV-ECMO) can be used to treat acute severe respiratory failure that does not respond to mechanical ventilator support. However, ARDS in a patient who has undergone pneumonectomy for lung cancer may not resolve with VV-ECMO. The risk of mortality and morbidity from ARDS is greater in pneumonectomy patients than in those who undergo smaller pulmonary resections or no resections.We report the effectiveness of ECMO in a patient with ARDS following aspiration pneumonia after left pneumonectomy in a patient in the intensive care unit (ICU)...
