Treatments

At Children's National, we treat the whole child, paying special attention to both their physical and emotional needs.

Here are some of the particular treatments we use to care for our patients.

Pediatric ECMO

ECMO is a modified form of heart and lung bypass used on a temporary basis, and an alternative to conventional methods of life support. 

Pediatric Hypothermia Whole Body Cooling

Children’s National Health System is the regional referral center for whole-body cooling (hypothermia) after newborns experience a hypoxic-ischemic injury.
