Abstract

The authors hereby report the case of a 16-year-old girl who was put on venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) for refractory acute respiratory distress syndrome. Use of thromboelastography as a supplement to conventional hemostatic investigations is highlighted to achieve an optimal anticoagulation state during the ECMO.
