A Dynamic Study on the Hemolytic Effect of Negative Pressure on Blood
It is often regarded as common knowledge that negative pressure applied on blood causes hemolysis, e. g. during ECMO or cardiac surgery. But in literature there are only few studies with different outcomes and often with static settings. Therefore, we designed a dynamic test set up to study the effect of negative pressure on hemolysis during a 6 hour test period.
