Monitoring blood levels in heart-lung machines
Two levels of blood are monitored in heart-lung machines to indicate when blood drops below the minimum level. Balluff's hybrid capacitive technology can accurately detect the difference in the actual blood level and any blood that inherently adheres to the wall of the reservoir. The sensors are typically adhesively mounted to the blood reservoir at the desired level enabling them to be reused.
- Reliably detects actual blood level
- Compensates for residue on reservoir walls
- Housing design in accordance of medical standards
