Novalung®: In ECPR, every second counts.

Give your patients more time to heal with Novalung.

When treating patients with acute cardiopulmonary failure, every choice is critical. Novalung is simple and easy to set up in challenging situations. The system may help the clinician optimize support for patients in cardiac arrest.

With advanced technology that oxygenates blood, removes CO2, and helps reduce stress on damaged organs, it is ideal for ECMO-assisted cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR).

Novalung’s single integrated platform focuses on improving the delivery, duration, and impact of lifesaving care.

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
