A New and Innovative Method for CO2 Removal in Anesthetic Circuits: Replacing Chemical Granulate

2017-01-10 03:53:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The drawbacks of chemical CO2 absorbers include the production of compounds harmful to patients that also lead into increased cost and environmental impact, as well as the daily disposal of compound special waste. Sustainable management of general anesthesia is a growing concern. Continually diluting anesthetic circuits, and the disposal of chemical granulate are serious environmental problems.

Description

DMF Medical has developed a next-generation CO2 filter in order to address the safety issues with current chemical CO2 absorbers in anesthesia.

memsorb uses patented advanced medical membrane technology to filter CO2 from anesthetic circuits rather than absorbing via a chemical reaction.

This game changing technology relies on a polymeric membrane core (similar to the ones used in oxygenators for cardiac surgery) that selectively allows CO2 to leave the rebreathing system, while maintaining the anesthetic vapor in the circuit.

memsorb is a cartridge similar in size and shape to current solutions that simply clicks in place.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormally slow pace of regaining CONSCIOUSNESS after general anesthesia (ANESTHESIA, GENERAL) usually given during surgical procedures. This condition is characterized by persistent somnolence.

Inhalation anesthesia where the gases exhaled by the patient are rebreathed as some carbon dioxide is simultaneously removed and anesthetic gas and oxygen are added so that no anesthetic escapes into the room. Closed-circuit anesthesia is used especially with explosive anesthetics to prevent fires where electrical sparking from instruments is possible.

Epidural anesthesia administered via the sacral canal.

A variety of anesthetic methods such as EPIDURAL ANESTHESIA used to control the pain of childbirth.

An opioid analgesic that is used as an adjunct in anesthesia, in balanced anesthesia, and as a primary anesthetic agent.
