EuroELSO and COVID-19

COVID-19 pandemics changes our lives instantly and medical personell is in the first line to face the threat.

Scientifically appropriate information and data play the key role in our decision making process, help to improve and adjust logistics and might help to calm the overall panic surrounding our existence.

Therefore, EuroELSO has prepared an online COVID-19 related library to access the most recent publications.

We will update our website very often, please check regularly. We have also prepared a survey to monitor ECMO usage and role in COVID-19 related ARDS.
Just follow our web page and social media accounts.

The COVID19 related activities of the EuroELSO are supported with an unrestricted Educational Grant of Getinge.


Geospatial aNalysis of ExtRacorporeal membrane oxygenATion in Europe

The Project GENERATE (GEospatial aNalysis of ExtRacorporeal membrane oxygenATion in Europe) was initiated on behalf of EuroELSO, European chapter of the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO) in collaboration with the Department of Geography at the University of Edinburgh and Paracelsus Medical University Nuremberg, Germany. 

The project aims to map the spatial distribution of ECLS centers in European countries and to provide a comprehensive analysis of the availability of ECLS, for adult and pediatric, cardiac and respiratory support in Europe.

We kindly invite you to contribute to the survey – it’ll take only 10minutes of your time. Thanks a lot in advance!
