MDF(Multi-functional Detoxifying Filter)

Introduction

A novel extracorporeal life support (ECLS) system -- the Pneuma-K ECLS system has been developed to simultaneously supports impaired lung and kidney functions. The principal feature of the Pneuma-K ECLS is the use of a multi-functional detoxifying filter (MDF) which performs multiple blood purification functions including high volume hemofiltration or continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT), blood oxygenation, and CO2 removal. Thus, it effectively supports lung and kidney functions simultaneously. These purification methods are coaxially integrated into a single filter unit with the MDF.
