  • Causa
    An arterial cannula used for open heart surgery is normally equipped with a vent plug, which facilitates the de-airing of the cannula.The vent plug of our arterial cannula consists of sintered polyethylene, therefore the structure of the vent plug is porous and gas-permeable. after the de-airing process is completed the customer has to separate the vent plug from the cannula to connect the extracorporeal circuit.Getinge has been made aware that in some instances, the vent plug can break during the separation from the arterial cannula.
  • Acción
