Cluster care, also known as cluster therapy, cluster intervention, or bundled therapy, is a series of evidence- based supportive joint care measures developed to improve the quality of care for specific patients or nursing issues. It is highly reliable and can effectively improve patient prognosis. This article summarized the application of cluster nursing care in extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO)-assisted patients and the problems faced to provide a reference for evidence-based decision-making in clinical practice.
