Novalung® Heart and
Lung Therapy System

Novalung is an extracorporeal membrane
oxygenation (ECMO) system that will transform
how we treat acute respiratory and
cardiopulmonary failure.




Insist on Safety. Deliver Accuracy. Choose Novalung.

When treating patients with acute respiratory or cardiopulmonary failure, every choice is critical. Novalung provides extracorporeal circulation and physiologic gas exchange via accurate delivery and safety-focused technology that enables long-term support.

Novalung is a time-sensitive and simple lifesaving solution for your most critical patients.

Novalung’s single integrated platform focuses on improving the delivery, duration, and impact of life-saving care. With advanced technology that oxygenates blood, removes CO2, and helps reduce stress on damaged organs, it is ideal for ECMO-assisted cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR), patients who need assistance weaning from cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), and extracorporeal carbon dioxide removal (ECCO2R).

Our impressive array of safety features includes a pre-connected standard set, active backup pump, and integrated bubble trap. The system can reduce the need for invasive mechanical ventilation, which, due to the air pressure required, could cause additional lung injury.1

Functions designed to enhance control and monitoring of ECMO therapy provide additional support for multi-organ injuries2 and may optimize survival in cardiac arrest3. These include pressure-limiting flow control, low flow precision, auto-set alarm limits, and visual parameter trending.

Until now, extracorporeal life support (ECLS) systems have only been approved for short-term treatments, which may be insufficient in more urgent situations. As the first ECMO system FDA-cleared for long term use over six hours, it gives your most critical patients what they need most–more time to heal.

The Novalung System is indicated for long-term (>6 hours) respiratory/cardiopulmonary support that provides assisted extracorporeal circulation and physiologic gas exchange (oxygenation and CO2 removal) of the patient's blood in adults with acute respiratory failure or acute cardiopulmonary failure, where other available treatment options have failed, and continued clinical deterioration is expected or the risk of death is imminent. These may include:

  • Failure to wean from cardiopulmonary bypass following cardiac surgery in adult patients
  • ECMO-assisted cardiopulmonary resuscitation in adults

Caution: Federal (US) law restricts these devices to sale by or on the order of a physician.

Note: Read the Instructions for Use for safe and proper use of these devices. The Indications for Use for this device can be found at https://fmcna.com/products/indications-safety-and-warnings
