There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
There are several different types of VADs. Boston Children’s is a leader in VAD innovation, and we have been granted permission to use certain devices pre-FDA approval in specific circumstances. The VAD team will decide which device is most appropriate for each patient’s unique situation.
Your child’s size, age and disease state are all taken into account when deciding what device is right. Some are intended for short-term use and some for long-term use.
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, or ECMO, is also used to provide emergent, short-term heart and lung support. If it is determined your child needs ECMO support, the VAD team will work with the ECMO team within the Division of Critical Care Medicine.
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
