Blood Reservoir Filtration
Blood reservoirs collect blood from patient circuits and filter clots, emboli and are often optimized for air handling and minimal foaming. Many manufacturers seek to defoam blood in the blood reservoir to reduce bubbles from aspirated blood and to minimize gaseous micro emboli from being carried through the system and affect patient outcomes during surgery. Pentair’s proprietary foam and felt technology effectively removes and prevents the foaming of blood during cardiovascular surgery.
Cardiovascular Surgery Preparation
Pentair’s Pre-Bypass Filters have been preferred by perfusionists for years as a reliable way to protect patients when priming cardiovascular devices for years. The primary function of these filters is to reduce micro emboli and other particles which could remain in the circuit and to help improve patient care during critical operations.
The rapid transfusion of blood can result in trapped air. Pentair manufactures bubble traps to remove air to guard against air embolism during blood transfusions.
Minimally Invasive Treatment
The advancement of minimally invasive surgery and growth has dramatically affected patient care and increased the rate of patient recovery significantly. With the various forms of minimally invasive surgery, it is critical to expand the workroom area for these devices to effectively operate within body cavities. Pentair’s cartridge filters can help to provide the sterile fluids for laparoscopic surgery, endoscopy reprocessors, sterile irrigation systems, and other minimally invasive technologies.
