Detectors, Air Bubble/Foam, Hemodialysis Unit

Definition : Detectors designed to discover air bubbles and/or foam in the blood that is returned to the body (usually through an arterio-venous fistula) by the extracorporeal blood circuit of a hemodialysis machine. These devices may detect the air bubbles (and also foam) using either ultrasonic sensors that detect changes in acoustic density or less frequently photoelectric sensors that detect infrared light by a photocell when a bubble is passing, otherwise the light is interrupted by the blood flow. Hemodialysis unit air bubble/foam detectors usually trigger alarms and activate automated mechanisms to stop the infusion.

Gambro Americas

Gambro is a global medical technology company and a leader in developing, manufacturing and supplying products and therapies for Kidney and Liver dialysis, Myeloma Kidney Therapy, and other extracorporeal therapies for Chronic and Acute patients. Kidney (renal) dialysis was the world's first extracorporeal therapy (i.e. a therapy that treats organ failure outside the body). Dialysis saves the lives of a growing number of patients every year, and innovation in the field is essential. The only current alternative to renal dialysis - kidney transplantation - is not an available option for most patients, due to a shortage of donor organs.
