We present the case of a 25-year-old, 28-week pregnant woman with two gunshot wounds to the chest. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) was begun within 12 hours, despite poor results in prior studies and the need for anticoagulation postoperatively, since oxygenation was rapidly deteriorating despite aggressive treatment. The patient ultimately made a full recovery.
