Extra corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) for refractory out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) has been shown to improve outcome in many Western countries. There are no reports of ECMO being used to support OHCA in India till date. We report a case of a young man who developed cardiac arrest (CA) while driving and was given bystander cardiac massage. He was brought to tertiary care center where an ECMO was utilized for refractory CA. The patient subsequently underwent emergency coronary artery stenting and was weaned off ECMO and ventilation. We discuss the case and highlight the role of bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
