Estimated probability of in-hospital mortality if ECMO is used:


*Model developed and validated using the Bleeding and Thrombosis on ECMO trial data from December 2012 to September 2014 (n=514). It is designed to predict the mortality risk for pediatric patients who receive ECMO for any indication. The model was developed to help describe the risk of dying among pediatric patients with similar characteristics and for institutional benchmarking. The model should not be used as a substitute for clinical judgement.
