The Hemolung®RAS is an innovative, dialysis-like alternative or supplement to mechanical ventilation that combines advanced technology with user-centered design to produce the first fully-integrated Respiratory Dialysis system.
Hemolung®RAA offers a simple, minimally invasive approach to extracorporeal CO2 removal (ECCO2R) for patients with acute hypercapnic respiratory failure. Removing carbon dioxide and delivering oxygen directly to the blood allows the patient’s lungs to rest and heal while avoiding intubation and facilitating protective ventilation.
Features of the Hemolung®RAS Respiratory Dialysis System:
- Highly efficient CO2 removal at blood flow rates of only 350 - 550mL/min is possible with patented "active mixing" technology. An integrated centrifugal pump creates the required blood flow.
- Requires only one 15.5 F dual lumen venous catheter (jugular or femoral) and minimal anticoagulation (aPTT 1.5X baseline).
