A 40-year-old pregnant woman at 28 weeks of gestation was diagnosed with severe acute respiratory failure syndrome (ARDS) due to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). She had severe hypoxemia despite the use of mechanical ventilation and muscle relaxant infusion. Veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VV-ECMO) was used, and she had a cesarian section while on ECMO support. She developed disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) with overt bleeding. This was managed by a multidisciplinary team (MDT) and a change of the ECMO circuit resulted in a dramatic improvement of her coagulation profile. Both the mother and the baby were discharged and went home in good condition. View Full-Text
