  1. OHCA Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, CT Computed tomography, ECPR Extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation, ECMO Extracorporeal cardiopulmonary membrane, CPC Cerebral Performance Category, TBI Traumatic brain injury, ASDH Acute subdural haemorrhage, ACS Acute coronary syndrome, LMT Left main trunk, AAA Acute abdominal aneurysm, AAD-A Acute aortic dissection Stanford type A, RCA Right coronary artery, SAH Subarachnoid haemorrhage, TAA Thoracic aortic aneurysm
  2. *Low-flow time was defined as duration of cardiac arrest or predicted cardiac arrest to the establishment of ECMO support onset
  3. Survival and neurological outcomes were assessed at hospital discharge
