The Hemobag® process consists of 3 simple steps:


Step 1: Fill the Hemobag

(After termination of bypass)


Fill at surgical field via the extracorporeal circuits arterial line connected directly to the Hemobag®.  After removing the aortic cannula using a 3/8 x 1/4 connector and a 1/4 inch line connected securely to the top of the Hemobag® off the field, then chasing forward any venous reservoir volume and the circuit's blood with crystalloid displacement into the Hemobag.


Step 2: Hemoconcentration

Apply the Hemobag® to the closed TS3 Tubing Set's "Recovery Loop circuit" for hemoconcentration via a spare 1/4 inch roller pump not in use. Concentrate down to a fine, rich, autologous whole blood product with harmful wastes and excess water removed but keeping all functional cellular components saved from being discarded.


Step 3: Infusion

With the lines clamped and capped, the Hemobag® is now ready for labeling and end-product reinfusion by anesthesia.
