Description
One out of ten ICU respiratory patients are characterised as being “severe”, with a lung function of less than 20% due to acute respiratory failure. This group are often referred to ECMO (Extra Corporal Membrane Oxygenation) treatment, in which the patient’s blood is oxygenized by an external machine, costing European healthcare centres €26Bn+ annually. The problem is, due to the rudimentary tools that ICU doctors use to diagnose these patients, 20% of all ECMO patients should not have been treated with ECMO and instead could have stayed in conventional intensive ventilation care. Industry partner Mermaid Care aims to solve this problem with ECMO-BIOMARKER – the...
