Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) for neonates is applied routinely at major children’s hospitals around the world. While the practice seems routine, the peculiar physiology of the small human imposes particular constraints on selection of equipment, performance of the circuit, and risks to the child. The physiology of small patients and physics of circuit elements leave many areas opaque and far from optimal, but still allow assembly of a set of useful heuristics for good practice. Here, we examine individual mechanical components of the ECMO circuit with attention to selection, pitfalls, and peculiarities of each when applied to the neonate.
