Abstract

Case studies on the use of venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in the obese patient have been infrequently reported. We report the successful utilization of venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in two obese patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome. The first patient had a body mass index of 93 and developed acute respiratory distress syndrome in the setting of pneumonia and aspiration while the second patient had a body mass index of 47 and developed acute respiratory distress syndrome in the setting of gastrografin aspiration. Both were successfully managed with venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and discharged from the hospital.
