Felix's ECMO Success Story

Colton's Success Story

Colton was flown from Key West to Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, for respiratory failure and septic shock because of a surgery he had the day after he was born. The scar tissue had injured parts of his intestines causing bacteria to get into his blood stream. Colton was admitted to the PICU at Nicklaus Children's Hospital and learned he needed another surgery.  Read this story.

17 Years Ago Jesse Underwent Heart-Lung Bypass Treatment at Nicklaus Children's, Now Quarterback of his High School Football Team

Jesse underwent ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation), a heart-lung bypass treatment that gives critically ill children a second chance. This lifesaving treatment replicates the natural functions of the heart and lungs while healing occurs. Jesse was on the ECMO treatment for 17 days, much longer than most patients. Read this story.

Cameron's Success Story

The first sign of trouble came in June when Cameron came home from day camp with a cough and fever. A swab test at the pediatrician’s office suggested Cameron did not have the H1N1 virus. But within a week her condition had worsened. Within days of hospitalization, Cameron was in a coma and was placed on a ventilator for complications later proven to be associated with H1N1. When her condition continued to deteriorate, doctors suggested she be transferred to Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, for advanced care. Read this story.
