The Oxiris membrane is an AN-69 membrane whose surface is treated with polyethyleneimine (PEI) grafted with heparin. This property allows the removal of lipopolysaccharide and cytokines from the blood. During septic shock, this membrane has shown its effectiveness and made it possible to decrease the doses of vasopressors administered, thus limiting the negative consequences of their use (low mesenteric flow in particular). Moreover, the literature suggests that the use of the Oxiris membrane does not lead to side effects or specific and serious complications, in comparison with conventional extra-renal purification membranes. To our knowledge (Pubmed, clinicaltrial) there are no data in patients in cardiogenic shock assisted by ECLS.

The research hypothesis is that the early addition of an Oxiris membrane to the ECLS circuit allows the removal of lipopolysaccharides and pro-inflammatory cytokines, thus controlling the inflammatory cascade and limiting vasoplegia and organ failure.
