Objective: experience in post-implantation care and pipeline maintenance in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome. Methods:2020Admitted on 27 July1 Cases of severe pneumonia were transferred to severe ventilator on August 6 and to critical ECMO on August 10. Results: after active treatment, especially for the late stage of ECMO pipeline, the vital signs of the patients improved obviously and the condition gradually stabilized. Conclusion: The nursing care before and after the establishment of ECMO pipeline in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome, the matters needing attention and the working experience after the establishment, It can provide a reference for the treatment of severe infectious diseases in the future.
