  • Abstract : Veno-Venous ECMO is a well-established procedure used in Intensive Care Units for patients with pulmonary failure. The patient blood is drained via a cannula in the inferior vena cava, oxygenated and reinserted via another cannula in the superior vena cava. Still, its efficacy is very limited, mainly due to recirculation between the two cannulas. In this talk we present a patient-specific, CFD-based computational model to assess the efficacy of the procedure and quantify recirculation.
