Prof. Bartlett on ECMOCARD

About the ExtraCorporeal Membrane Oxygenation for 2019 novel Coronavirus Acute Respiratory Disease ECMOCARD study, Professor Robert Bartlett, writes:”… our most important weapon in this crisis is data to predict and plan – on a global scale… a global problem needs global collaboration”. Here some words by Professor John Fraser, President of the Asia Pacific ELSO Chapter APELSO, introducing the study.
“Colleagues
As President of the Asia Pacific ELSO, I write to express my gratitude for all the work and collaboration from our brothers and sisters during this time of pandemic.
At times of global crisis, this is where teams show their strength. We have now more than. 50 centres in 20+ countries. over 4 continents that have signed up for the ECMOCARD study. Each night more centres are contacting us to join to work together; innovators and trailblazers that have come before us have given us the skills to hopefully be able to help the most critically unwell. It is in this environment that I am delighted that the father of #ECMO, Prof. Bob Bartlett has written to congratulate the ECMOCARD on the global collaboration we have created. Because a global crisis needs global collaboration for a global solution.
With Best wishes and thanks”
John
