Interview, Dr Marco Ranieri
With growing interest and rapid technological development of devices related to extracorporeal support, prominent intensive care specialist Dr Marco Ranieri believes that the ECMO field is at the precipice of an exciting new age.
And nowhere does he see more proof of its impact than at the International Congress on ECMO. A long-term contributor, Dr Ranieri enjoys coming to Paris each spring to learn what new techniques are at the vanguard of this exciting field. “You come one year and you see speakers presenting new data, presenting technological developments and the year after you see these data becoming standard of care, you see these technological developments becoming a product that is available at the bedside,” he said.
