INTRODUCTION: Improvement of the ADRS in prone positioning has been reported . Oscillatory ventilation is often used for ARDS patients with high airway pressure despite optimum ventilator management. ECMO is used as an advanced mode of therapy if ventilator management fails. Here we present a challenging case of ARDS whose condition was deteriorating in spite of combination therapy of ECMO and oscillatory ventilation, which showed prompt improvement in oxygenation and respiratory compliance after prone positioning.
