Program Highlights

UAB Medicine is a major referral center for patients needing advanced life support due to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), pulmonary embolism, post-cardiac arrest complications, septic shock, and other conditions. We have one of the nation’s most active extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) programs, and our board-certified physicians and surgeons are supported by nurses, perfusionists, and respiratory and physical therapists trained to care for ECMO patients. We have expertise in the use of prone positioning for treating severe ARDS, and we offer telemedicine consultations to other hospitals to share our proficiency in evidence-based treatments.
