The ECMO system is a complex machine that takes over the work of the heart and lungs, allowing them to rest and recover. The ECMO machine pumps the patient's blood out of their body, adds oxygen to it, removes carbon dioxide, and then pumps it back into the patient. This process helps to support the patient's vital organs and gives them time to heal.
