These highly advanced interventions are responsible for saving dozens of young lives every year at Huntington Hospital.

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a life-saving surgical treatment for pulmonary hypertension or respiratory failure in infants. ECMO uses a pump to pump blood out of the body and through an artificial lung to receive oxygen and remove carbon dioxide. This supports the work of the failing lungs.
Nitric Oxide (NO) Treatment
Nitric oxide (NO) treatment is a non-invasive method of treating respiratory and cardiopulmonary disorders in infants. If the baby is coming from a distant location, helicopter transfer may be arranged. And whether the infant is transported by ambulance or helicopter, a neonatology team will be on hand to provide medical support during the journey.
High-Risk Infant Follow-up Clinic
For NICU graduates who require follow-up care after discharge, a team of skilled practitioners from our high-risk infant follow-up clinic are on-hand to assist families with additional needed services.
These services are available to babies who graduate from Huntington Hospital as well as other NICU facilities.
