Femoral arteriovenous extracorporeal carbon dioxide elimination using low blood flow.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: Conventional extracorporeal CO2 removal systems require blood flow rates of 1 to 2.5 L/min in the extracorporeal circuit. We hypothesized that standard hemofiltration equipment can be combined with a high-performance extracorporeal lung to achieve high rates of CO2 removal at lower blood flow rates. To test this hypothesis, we performed experiments on nine sheep to examine the extent to which CO2 elimination can be achieved at blood flow rates less than 600 mL/min usin...
