is designed to predict the mortality risk of neonates requiring ECMO for respiratory support. The tool was developed for institutional benchmarking, use in observational research, and to help quantify the risk of dying among neonates with similar conditions requiring respiratory ECMO.
- Primary diagnosis of congenital heart disease, heart failure, cardiomyopathy, and myocarditis
- ECMO support indicated due to cardiac arrest (but a cardiac arrest that occurred prior to ECMO for respiratory support is not an exclusion)
