Children with the most severe form of respiratory failure who do not respond to conventional treatment are offered ECMO support. The clinic is the first and only neonatal intensive care unit in Poland, providing extracorporeal support, the so-called “artificial lung – heart”. During this procedure, therapeutic hypothermia may be used in newborns at risk of brain damage due to severe hypoxia.
