Abstract: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is usually performed after cardiogenic shock and cardiac arrest but conventional CPR (cCPR) might be unsuccessful to provide return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). Some other methods have been developed to provide and restore circulation for this scenario and Veno-arterial (VA) Extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has been safely used in cardiogenic shock, post myocardiotomy cardiac failure and after cardiac arrest for many years.
