WELCOME TO
ECMO SA

ECMO (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation) is a form of cardiopulmonary life support, where blood is drained from the vascular system, circulated outside the body, and enters a circuit of tubing where carbon dioxide is removed and oxygen is added. It is then reinfused into the body. 

OUR MISSION

The ECMO Society of South Africa embodies the shared passion and unwavering commitment of a dedicated group of professionals. Our mission is to enhance and broaden comprehension, proficiency, education, and training in ECMO practices, both within the medical community and among the general public, fostering excellence and innovation in critical care.

OUR VISION

Our vision at ECMO South Africa is to lead in transforming critical care through innovation and excellence in Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) therapy. We are dedicated to advancing patient outcomes, pioneering cutting-edge technologies, and setting the standard for compassionate, lifesaving care across Africa.
