Together we can help tackle the health conditions
that we'll all face in our lifetimes.
We are people powering medical discoveries.
When a patient's heart and lungs begin to fail, they are often put on a treatment called extra corporeal membrane oxygenation, or ECMO for short. These life-support systems are often the last chance to help critically ill patients recover by helping to pump blood and oxygen around the body. From infants to children and adults, these amazing machines have saved tens of thousands of lives worldwide.
Research has shown that the inability to talk can lead to depression, social withdrawal, lack of motivation to participate in self-care, and more. This is a common issue that occurs in intensive care units (or ICUs) all over the world - patients that require a tracheostomy (a procedure that involves inserting a tube through the windpipe to create an alternative airway for breathing) lose the ability to speak, as oxygen isn't make its way past their vocal chords.
Urine testing is a simple check that can provide important medical information on patients – but what if your patients aren’t yet toilet trained?
Our body requires oxygen to survive but sometimes despite all conventional treatments our body simply can’t get the oxygen it needs that’s where Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (or ECMO) comes in. ECMO keeps oxygen and blood pumping through the lungs and heart, keeping those at high risk of death alive but it comes with its own set of complications.
Join a team of researchers, volunteers, and everyday people all working together to find a breakthrough.
