EuroELSO survey on ECMO in COVID-19

Lorusso R.: with @jan_belohlavek sharing (preliminary) data but really interesting insights from EuroECMO COVID, the scientific “adventure” of EuroELSO survey, amazing collection of data in really short ime, thanks to EuroELSO & collaborative centers.

Fraser J.: presenting COVID critical care consortium, global collaboration of more than 330 hospital across 50 countries, 1021 patients enrolled to date, aimed to characterize COVID-19 ICU pts, & its subgroups: we need data to get whole picture!

And please take the ongoing related surveys, ie neonatal and pediatric ICU & ECMO survey http://bit.ly/3d7MSmR aimed to acquire basic informations on neonates & pediatric SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus patients requiring ICU admission/ECMO, or the ethics ECMO & pandemis survey.
