A Feasibility Study For a Hollow Fibre CO2 Removal Device / LEIGH CUMPER

Swansea University Author: LEIGH CUMPER

Abstract

A feasibility study was conducted for the design of a hollow fibre carbon dioxideremoval device for use within anaesthesia. It is proposed that the device will beused to replace current carbon dioxide capture methods, which pose issues in bothpatient safety and environmental aspects. Experimental st...
