Low Flow CO2 Removal : PRAL to Hemolung
- ALung is commercializing the Hemolung Respiratory Assist System (RAS), a dialysis-like alternative or supplement to mechanical ventilation originally developed at the University of Pittsburgh.
- The Hemolung RAS removes carbon dioxide and delivers oxygen directly to the blood, allowing the patient's lungs to rest and heal. A simple extracorporeal circuit, small venous catheter, and techniques similar to hemodialysis make the Hemolung RAS easy to use.
