Predicting the Need for Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) and Mortality in a Neonate with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) Using the Model of Neff et al


Neff et al used measurement of the fetal lung volume in a patient with congenital diaphgramatic hernia (CDH) to predict the need for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and mortality. These measures can help to predict which neonates will require more aggressive management. The authors are from University Hospital Mannheim and the University of Heidelberg.
