Within the last several years however, microfiber, microporous, polymethylpentene membrane oxygenators have been commercially deployed which provide highperformance gas exchange with low resistance to flow and relatively little blood trauma, but without the plasma leakage. These devices have been found to perform very well for ECMO for more than a week at a time [15–17]. Very recently, these oxygenators have been produced with protein and heparin molecules lining the membrane in order to decrease the systemic inflammation and blood clotting associated with passage of blood through extrinsic surfaces.
It has also been used successfully as a bridge to lung transplant . The first clinical case reports using paracorporeal artificial lung have just come out [44, 45]. This device is essentially a membrane oxygenator placed in parallel to the pulmonary circulation with connection to the pulmonary artery and to the left atrium. It has been used in the specific circumstance of right ventricular failure secondary to pulmonary hypertension, when standard ECMO is failing. It performed well in these circumstances supporting 1 patient for 63 days.

They found that the temperature of rats two-thirds submerged in FC-43 was readily controlled and manipulated by changing the temperature of the FC-43. In a small experimental pilot study, Davies et al.  explored the possibility of using wholebody immersion in PFC to provide some degree E F B A C A D Fig. 1.
