Initiation of ECMO for ventilator-dependent respiratory failure in an infant with Pompe's

Christina Riojas, Walter Pipkin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We present a 7-month-old male with Pompe's disease with respiratory failure requiring extracorporeal membrane oxygenation that received enzyme replacement therapy. There are no published cases of the use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in a patient with Pompe's disease, or the use of enzyme replacement therapy in the setting of acute respiratory failure.
