ECCO2R

An infrequently used treatment for severe hypercapnic respiratory failure (high carbon dioxide blood levels with accompanying respiratory acidosis), in which carbon dioxide is swept from venous blood and replaced, typically with oxygen.

Indeed, this artificial carbon dioxide removal was so efficient that, when extracorporeal carbon dioxide removal approximated carbon dioxide production, alveolar ventilation could almost be ceased (37).
Ultra-protective mechanical ventilation may be achieved in patients with ARDS with the use of low flow (0.3-0.5 litres/minute) veno-venous extracorporeal carbon dioxide removal where tidal volumes could be reduced to 4 ml/kg of predicted body weight.
