Silicone Tubing Set Leaflet
For perfusion during donor lung procurement
The silicone tubing set is specifically designed for rapid flushing of donor lungs during procurement. The set permits simultaneous/continuous perfusion from two 1,000 mL or one 2,800 mL PERFADEX® bags, given either together or one at the time, whereby one bag can be exchanged while the other is still flushing.
The wide bore 3/8’’ tubing permits use of high flow rates at relatively low pressures, in order to minimise the risk for endothelial injury. The use of silicone tubing reduces the risks of kinking.
The tubing set for lung perfusion is 200 cm long and consists of two 50 cm tubes which are jointed together by a y-connector to a 150 cm tube. The 50 cm tubes are equipped with spikes and all three tubes are fitted with tubing clamps for regulating the flow. The tubing set is sterile and intended for single use only.
During procurement, the lung is rapidly flushed by low pressure gravity with cold PERFADEX® via the Silicone Tubing until the pink color of the effluent indicates most of the blood has been replaced. The two 50 mm Y-connected tubes permit exchange of successive IV bags of PERFADEX® whilst ensuring continuous flushing of the donor lung. The distal end of the tubing is connected to the pulmonary artery via an arterial cannula with a 3/8’’ connector equipped with a valve.
