A 32 µm screen filter surrounds the fiber layer of the oxygenator. Particulate micro-emboli that may be present in the blood are trapped in the filter mesh while gaseous emboli remain inside the oxygenator and in contact with the hollow fibers. Driven by the pressure difference, gaseous emboli enter the inner lumen of the microporous hollow fiber and are eliminated via the gas outlet.
- Integrated arterial filter with self-venting technology;
- Lower priming volume, high gas exchange and low pressure drop are optimally balanced for superb performance;
- Hollow fibers manufactured exclusively by Terumo using a patented technology means total quality management from raw materials to finished product;
- Superior O2 transfer performance.
