Role of Methadone in Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation: Two Case Reports.

Erik Dong, Robert Fellin, Danny Ramzy, Joshua S Chung, Francisco A Arabia, Alice Chan, David Ng, Nicola D'Attellis, Michael Nurok,

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) affects pharmacokinetics/dynamics of drugs in unpredictable ways. Anecdotally, ECMO patients require high doses of opioids and sedatives, leading to concerns of tolerance. Methadone is a long-acting synthetic opioid with antagonist properties at the n-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptor. It has been shown to improve spontaneous breathing trials and ... Read more >>
