Abstract

There are limited data on the treatment of fungal infections complicating extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). In 14 patients who developed fungal bloodstream infections on ECMO, 8 (57%) survived to discharge. Of the 5 patients completing treatment prior to decannulation, 2 (40%) developed recurrent fungal infections.
