A method for measuring simultaneous MemL and NatL gas exchange during neonatal ECMO has been described. Closed-circuit spirometry techniques were used for both measurements. This technique demonstrated minimal pulmonary gas exchange at low airway pressures prior to pulmonary recovery and measured the gas exchange of metabolism in these critically ill neonates.
