A special Class IV medical grade, DEHP-free PVC plastisol gives CardioMed cannulae kink-resistant thin walls and an ultra-smooth finish which maximizes blood flow.
In an independent flow rate study, CardioMed’s 20Fr. Arterial Perfusion cannulae were tested against one of the best 20Fr. models available from the competition. The study showed that, at 91.5 cm H20, CardioMed cannulae achieved a flow rate of 3.57 L/min while the equivalent competitor’s cannulae had a flow rate of 3.42 L/min.
CardioMed’s ultra-high flow tip design maximizes flow by virtue of being able to have the largest inner lumen diameter available. With a thin wall hemodynamic design, CardioMed’s cannuale achieved the lowest pressure drop at any blood flow level.
