Influence of the Taurus radiowave blood warmer on human red cells. Hemolysis and erythrocyte ATP and 2,3 DPG concentrations following warming by radiowaves, microwaves and water bath.

Abstract

The warming properties of the Taurus radiowave blood warmer were studied. The safety limits were the same as for microwave warming (Haemotherm). Hemolysis was noted in units with a hematocrit over 0.75 or containing less than 300 g of blood. The effects of radiowave, microwave and water bath warming on the erythrocyte ATP and 2,3 DPG concentrations were… (More)
