Comparative evaluation of new fine-screen filters: effects on blood flow rate and microaggregate removal.

Fine-screen filters were studied in a simulated clinical situation wherein ten units of outdated concentrated erythrocytes were rapidly transfused per filter to determine flow rates and effectivenesses of debris removal. Preliminary studies to evaluate flow rates with outdated whole blood indicated that the Bentley PFF-100, Fenwal 4C9003, and Biotest MF-10… CONTINUE READING
