The iLA membrane ventilator is an extrapulmonary ventilation system which is used to remove carbon dioxide. The heart pumps blood through the iLA membrane ventilator as it does through a natural organ.
The iLA membrane ventilator “breathes” outside of the body for the patient and carries out some of the gas exchange work of the native lung.
The gas exchange takes place via a plasma-tight, heparin-coated diffusion membrane which is connected arteriovenously femorally by means of two NovaPort one KI single lumen cannulas. This makes the iLA membrane ventilator the world’s only available pumpless extrapulmonary gas exchange system.
The iLA membrane ventilator is designed specially for long-term use, and can be applied to the patient for up to 29 days.
