We offer extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) treatments for patients suffering from cardiac and/or pulmonary failure. Based on a holistic understanding of human physiology, we develop extracorporeal life support (ECLS) technologies that can be vital for the survival of critically ill patients.[1-3]

We provide solutions that combine both cardiac and pulmonary support on one single technological platform, the Xenios console. It supports gas exchange in the lungs and the cardiovascular system. ECMO thus provides physicians with crucial time for diagnosis and therapy.[1]

Extracorporeal life support with ECMO - Essential treatment time for doctors and patients
Multiorgan support Fresenius Medical Care

Xenios is part of Fresenius Medical Care, the world’s leading provider of products and services for people with renal diseases. As human organs are a mutually linked system, Fresenius Medical Care pursues a multi-organ support approach in Critical Care, drawing on its extensive expertise in extracorporeal blood treatment for acute kidney injury.

We are complementing Fresenius Medical Care’s product portfolio in the field of intensive care and are continuing to shape the future of extracorporeal multi-organ support.

In our daily work, we share a passion for helping people.
For patients. Worldwide. Every day.
