  1. aGIR denotes for “gender-specific age-adjusted incidence rate of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation,” which means the annual number of ECMO cases per million person-year adjusting for age distribution in 2000
  2. The gender status of some ECMO users in the NHIRD is missing: one in 2001, two in 2003, three in 2004, and one in 2004
