Definition and Management of Right Ventricular Injury in Adult Patients Receiving Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation
The aim of this study is to identify existing definitions and therapeutic approaches for acute right ventricular injury (RVI) in patients receiving extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) for respiratory support. The objective of the study is to generate expert consensus statements on the definition and management of acute RVI in this high-risk patient population, using a Delphi method. The standardised RVI definition during ECMO for respiratory support and a consensus-based management approach to RVI will facilitate systematic aggregation of data across clinical trials to harmonise patient selection and compare therapeutic interventions.
