The Hemovac® Autotransfusion System (H.A.S.® Autotransfusion System) from Zimmer is a fully integrated, completely portable blood management system that does not depend on external sources such as wall suction or batteries to operate. Because wall suction is not needed, the risk of hemolysis can be reduced. The blood filter system’s low, gentle suction helps ensure the overall quality of blood to be reinfused. The Hemovac Autotransfusion System provides everything needed for collection of post-operative drainage of the patient’s own blood and for continued wound drainage after reinfusion: a collection unit, wound drainage tubing, dual trocars and an evacuator. By utilizing the H.A.S. evacuator and collection bag for wound drainage post-reinfusion, the clinician’s exposure to the patient’s blood and body fluids can be minimized.
The Zimmer®Blood Reinfusion System is an easy-to-use postoperative blood management tool that can help reduce the dependency on banked blood, including preoperative autologous donation. Fully integrated and completely portable, the Zimmer Blood Reinfusion System effectively salvages and filters the patient’s own blood postoperatively. Unlike other systems that require mechanical devices or pumps, the Zimmer Blood Reinfusion System uses its own Hemovac Evacuator technology for low, gentle suction that can help reduce the risk of hemolysis. In addition, as a closed-loop system, this blood purification system may also minimize the clinician’s exposure to the patient’s blood during collection and reinfusion.
The Hemovac Infection Control System consists of a specially designed 400ml evacuator and a disposable exudate bag. Both combine to form a closed system, minimizing the clinician’s exposure to blood. An innovative ball valve in the bag attachment spout on the evacuator, and a one-way flutter valve in the disposable exudate bag keep all fluids confined within the system. Drainage records can be written on the area provided on the exudate bag. The exudate bag holds up to 450ml of fluid and, when full, is simply detached and discarded.
The closed system minimizes the clinician’s exposure to blood.
