OBJECTIVES To compare the efficiency of a new gas diffuser with conventional tubes for carbon dioxide (CO(2)) de-airing of a cardiothoracic wound cavity model, and to analyze how insufflation flow, outflow velocity, and diffusion affect de-airing. DESIGN Technical study in vitro. SETTING A nonventilated room at a University Hospital. INTERVENTIONS De-airing by CO(2) insufflation via 3 methods was studied in a symmetric cardiothoracic wound model. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS The… CONTINUE READING
