Figure 5 : Figures show a centrifugal pump used for ECMO. Children will have cannulas left in the aorta and right atrium for post-op cardiac surgical indications such as low output syndrome. In general the circuit contains a pump which receives venous blood and pumps it into an oxygenator with a side line to a hemofilter past a flow probe and back to the arterial side of the patient. Cannulation sites for adults are the Internal Jugular Vein (IJV) Femoral vein (FV) for VV ECMO and IJV and/or FV, and Femoral artery for VA ECMO
