Objective: To summarize the nursing experience of Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) in treating a patient with antidepressant poisoning. Methods: A retrospective analysis was made on the ECMO treatment of a patient with depression after drug poisoning in 2022, and the specific measures for emergency care were summarized. Results: The patient's consciousness of survival was weak, and the heart and lung function were seriously exhausted. The ECMO was launched late, and the final rescue of the patient was invalid. Conclusion: The patients with severe poisoning caused by high-dose antidepressants are critically ill. After other treatment methods are ineffective, ECMO treatment can provide cardiopulmonary support for the patients. The professional ability of the ECMO medical team, the correct evaluation of the patients and the prevention of complications are the key to the success of treatment.
