Table top scenario: high pressure excursion in an oxygenator.

This session will be a table top scenario about high pressure excursions (HPE) in oxygenators. HPE occur when the transmembrane pressure becomes excessively high, often to the point of causing the blood flow to be reduced to avoid circuit disruption.  This can happen on ECMO as well as CPB circuits.

Perfusion Theory is an educational platform for the Oxygen Pressure Field Theory (OPFT). August Krogh’s theoretical concept of the oxygen pressure field is explained and then applied to clinical applications in perfusion practice.
