Carbon dioxide transfer in a membrane blood oxygenator


Rates of desorption of CO2 from bovine blood, as well as bovine serum, aqueous hemoglobin solutions, and water in a flat-plate-type experimental membrane blood oxygenator using silicone rubber and microporous polypropylene membranes were measured. The experimental data showed good agreement with the rigorous theoretical predictions based on an assumption… (More)
