Before a patient can start an extra-corporeal treatment, like dialysis and cardiopulmonary bypass, the extra-corporeal circuit must be primed. This involves flushing the circuit with saline, or similar solutions, to remove air and any particulates, and to ensure there are no leaks. By integrating our proprietary technology, the H-Guard® Priming Solution is being designed to reduce the symptoms and complications risked by patients as a result of their immune response to the extra-corporeal circuit.
The H-Guard® Priming Solution will be used as part of existing priming procedures, with the aim of maintaining the existing workflow steps and cycle-times.
The H-Guard® Priming Solution is under development and not available for clinical use.
