Abstract

The "Sterile Cockpit Rule," developed in 1981 as an aviation regulation, was adapted by the ECMO core team to promote a distraction-free environment during critical ECMO procedures. Upon review of the data including tracking of interruptions, errors, and staff experience, it is evident that the concept of Sterile Cockpit has streamlined procedure efficiency, as well as safety.
