Abstract

The woven tubes membrane oxygenator is a suitable configuration for the intracorporeal membrane oxygenator because of a high gas exchange performance and a compact packing of tubing. In this study the oxygen transfer performance of woven tubes was evaluated by an in vitro experiment with an external perfusion mode; the blood flow is outside of the tubes in order to reveal the feasibility of designing the intravascular oxygenator (IVOX) by the woven tubes. The oxygen transfer efficiency of the external perfusion mode is superior to that with the internal perfusion mode because of the larger convective mixing effect on the external surface of the tubes. Thus the use of the external perfusion mode results in the shorter necessary tube length for the rated condition, which enables making the oxygenator unit more compact. All of these features encourage the adoption of the woven tubes for use in the intravascular oxygenator.
