Detectors, Air Bubble/Foam

Definition : Detectors designed to discover air bubbles (e.g., gas embolus, typically of 0.5 ml or larger), micro bubbles (e.g., fractions of microliter), and/or foam in extracorporeal perfusion lines and/or devices intended to deliver blood and intravenous solutions into the vascular system. These devices usually detect the gas embolus using photoelectric or ultrasonic techniques; they frequently trigger alarms and activate automated mechanisms to stop the infusion. Air bubble/foam detectors are used mainly in equipment designed to provide temporary total or partial external circulation for therapeutic or other purposes (e.g., heart-lung bypass, hemodialysis and apheresis units).
