DEVICE FEATURES 

DESIGNED FOR ECMO

CIRCULAR FLOW-PATH TECHNOLOGY

The Nautilus ECMO Oxygenator has a transverse flow-path with a circular profile. Transverse flow minimizes surface contact area while achieving a low blood-side pressure drop. The circular profile eliminates corners where low flow and stasis are known to occur.

Circular Shape

Eliminates corners, areas known for clotting

Guided Inlet

Reduces velocity changes at the inlet where low flow and stasis may occur
