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.
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.

The purpose of this study is to describe, in real-life conditions, the factors influencing the choice of anesthesia (spinal anesthesia or short general anesthesia) in outpatient surgery.
The role of neuraxial anesthesia in preventing respiratory complications is a controversial in elderly patients. The aim of the study was to evaluate the benefits of neuraxial anesthesia o...
In major orthopaedic surgery of the lower extremities both continuous spinal anesthesia (CSA) and combined spinal epidural anesthesia (CSE) are safe and reliable anaesthesia methods. Our r...
Trauma for hip joint is common in old people. Anesthesia in these types of old patients carries more risk than the adult population. In this study the investigators will review patient's ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether depth of anesthesia has an effect on emergence agitation (EA) in children age 2 - 8 years old. EA is a common problem in pediatric patient...
Although regional anesthesia for ambulatory patients is feasible, effective and recommended, general anesthesia, analgosedation and monitored anesthesia care traditionally play a major role in the amb...
Efficient learning of regional anesthesia in ophthalmology remains challenging because trainees are afforded limited opportunity to practice ocular anesthesia. The aim of this prospective, randomized,...
During the past several decades, anesthesia has become increasingly safe. Truly major adverse events are rare, and anesthesia quality researchers have instituted programs to evaluate "near miss" or le...
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.
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
