non invasive measuring of blood viscisity if feasible during extracorporeal circulation for cardiac surgery.
Pressure at both inlet and outlet of artificial lung, hematocrit and blood temperature can realize the estimation of blood viscisity of circulation blood during extracorporeal circulation.
This non-invasive monitaring apparatus can measure blood viscosity continuously and prevent thrombosis of artificial lung and circuit.
Every company who deals with artificial lung for open heart surgery had better to introduce this thecnique and measure the blood viscosity during extracorporeal circulation.
No competition to this monitaring method
