Filters, Heart-Lung Bypass Priming

Definition : Filters that are used before the heart-lung bypass unit is connected to the patient but after the bypass unit is loaded (primed) with circulating fluid, usually a physiologic solution or blood substitute. The system is run, in a closed circuit, and the filters serve to clean out any particles that might have been inadvertently left within the pumping circuit. The priming filters are then removed and the unit is connected to the patient.
