Preparation of the Setup for Performing Arteriovenous Hemofiltration
Figure 1 realistically depicts the simple tubing system which is required to perform continuous arteriovenous hemofiltration (CAVH). By means of two femoral catheters, (Item number 1130.089, Vygon Aachen), blood is conducted through a capillary hemofilter (Diafilter-20, Amicon, or other products) with arterial inlet and venous return tubing.
