Oxygenators, Extracorporeal Bubble

Definition : Oxygenators designed to perform gas exchange by bubbling oxygen from tanks or from a central hospital supply through a column of blood. These oxygenators usually include a defoamer to break up the bubbles caused by the oxygenation process and an arterial reservoir that collects defoamed blood; a gas flowmeter and a filtering system are usually placed in the oxygen line. Bubble oxygenators are mostly used in short-term procedures, lengthy operation of these devices could increase the risk of emboli, blood damage, and protein denaturization.
