The Hemolung Cartridge
The Hemolung Cartridge combines a centrifugal blood pump with an advanced gas exchange membrane in one device capable of providing efficient extracorporeal CO2 removal at dialysis-like blood flow rates.
Superior efficiency with ActiveMix™ Technology
The Hemolung Cartridge incorporates ALung’s patented ActivMixTM technology to provide highly efficient extracorporeal CO2 removal at dialysis-like blood flow rates via a single Hemolung 15.5 Fr Catheter.
Simplicity through Integrated Design
The Hemolung Cartridge is a completely integrated pump/membrane making the device easy to use. The integrated centrifugal blood pump provides circuit flows of 350–550 mL/min when paired with the Hemolung Catheter. The simple, closed extracorporeal circuit has a minimal priming volume (260 mL).
Advanced Membrane for Reliable Performance
The Hemolung Cartridge utilizes an advanced dual-layer membrane coating to ensure reliable performance and steady gas exchange. The coating consists of a base siloxane layer to prevent plasma wetting, and a top layer of bound heparin to provide thromboresistance. With ActivMixTM technology providing efficient gas exchange, the Hemolung Cartridge has one of the smallest membranes of any ECCO2R device (0.59 m2).
