Oxygenators, Extracorporeal Membrane
Definition : Oxygenators designed to perform gas exchange by diffusing oxygen into the blood across of a gas-permeable membrane. There are three main types of membrane oxygenators: plate, coil, and hollow fiber. Membrane oxygenators may be used in long-time procedures, they produce less emboli, are less likely to transport bubbles into the patient's circulatory system, and cause less blood damage than bubble oxygenators.
