A novel method for measuring hollow fiber membrane permeability in a gas-liquid system.

Abstract

Designing an effective intravenous membrane oxygenator requires selecting hollow fiber membranes (HFMs) that present minimal resistance to gas exchange over extended periods of time. Microporous fiber membranes, as used in extracorporeal oxygenators, offer a minimal exchange resistance, but one that diminishes with time because of fiber wetting and… (More)
