Why TandemLung?

190,000 Americans are affected by Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) every year. Despite receiving therapy with mechanical ventilation, approximately 40% of ARDS patients will die as a result of the disease. Veno-venous extracorporeal life support (VV ECLS) is an emerging therapy designed to provide a higher level of support by infusing oxygen directly into the blood. The CESAR trial randomized 180 adult ARDS patients and the use of advanced VV ECLS therapy reduced the rate of death and disability by 31% compared to conventional management with mechanical ventilation.

The TandemLung Kit is designed to address two major roadblocks that have prevented VV ECLS therapy from becoming a new standard of care: the difficulty of initiating and maintaining a patient on VV ECLS support, and suboptimal gas exchange rates with devices that are currently available.


  • Right Internal Jugular vein insertion
  • Stable, RA-PA configuration to reduce recirculation
  • Quick priming pump and oxygenator easily exchanged
  • Shortest total circuit length on the market
  • Enhanced mobility when used with the Voyager Vest

Included Products

TandemHeart Pump

Experience bypass in the palm of your hand. The TandemHeart Pump can be used in the Cardiac Catherization Lab or the Operating Room in a vast variety of configurations

TandemLung Oxygenator

Think outside of the box. The TandemLung’s sleek design features patented radial flow technology lowering flow resistance, enabling the pump to move blood more efficiently.

ProtekDuo Cannula

The cannula with all of the right moves. Protek Duo is designed to be implemented in multiple configurations. The patented omni-directional inflow/outflow ports mitigate recirculation and provide 360-degree flow.

Priming Tray

The priming tray was designed to provide customers with a quick and repeatable priming process that can be implemented virtually anywhere and anytime TandemLife or TandemLung support is needed.

Voyager Vest

The world’s only wearable extracorporeal life support platform. Recent literature suggests that enhancing patient mobility while on extracorporeal life support can reduce patient mortality and hospital costs.1 Implementing this treatment strategy has been difficult due to the size and complexity of standard ECLS systems. However, TandemLife has created the world's first and only wearable ECLS platform, helping you transform ECLS to the next generation of support.

  • Three simple and easy-to-use components
  • Biocompatible vest placed over the shoulders maintains access to the chest
  • Custom-designed holster secures the TandemHeart pump, and TandemLung oxygenator
  • Detachable halo secures all 3/8” tubing without restricting head movement
