Please can anyone help with advice. A member of my family has come off ECMO following treatment for Sepsis. It seems to be taking a long time to wake up but I understand patients are heavily sedated and paralysed and treated with opiates for pain relief. His kidneys are not working so I understand that the drugs will take longer to go out of his system. He has some small bleeds in the brain and the impact will not be known until he wakes up. Please can anyone advise me. Thank you.
