A serpentine gas exchange unit was built with cylindrical tubular microporous membranes featuring periodic arcs with a fixed curvature ratio (ratio of tube radius to radius of curvature) of 1/14 and circular angles between 30 and 360 deg. Oxygen transfer was measured under steady and pulsatile blood flow conditions in vitro and ex vivo to assess the design… CONTINUE READING
