Blood Cell Washer Sets, Autotransfusion Unit
Definition : Combinations of preassembled disposable devices designed to handle blood in the washing procedure performed by autotransfusion units. These sets typically include plastic tubing, filters (e.g., bacteria), connectors, and bags (e.g., red blood cell, waste); some sets also include a disposable bowl for the processing solution (e.g., saline). Disposable blood cell washer sets are used as a disposable component of an autotransfusion unit during surgery and/or treatment of trauma to remove waste and improve the safety of autologous reinfused blood (autotransfusion).
