ADMICARD 4500 Remowell2 is a hard-shell cardiotomy reservoir designed to collect the patient’s blood from the intrathoracic aspirators using the roller pumps of the heart-lung machine.
- Retention for filtration (“cascade” process)
- Decantation and separation of the surnatant
Lipids and leucocytes reduction occurs through a special and unique filtration system able to internally hold back, in sequential layers, first the “fatty” particles and then a portion of white blood cells by simple filtration.
In addition, through decantation with a special “skimming” system, the lipids still present in the blood can be separated and retained. The blood flow dynamic has been developed to deeply decrease the rheological stress, and the potential blood damage.
