In the event of respiratory arrest, temporary support is critical in enabling physicians to assess patients’ conditions to determine the root cause and a longer term treatment strategy. Historically initating emergent respiratory rescue has been difficult due to the complexity of the devices.
The TandemLung kit is designed to address two major roadblocks that have prevented emergent veno-venous cardiopulmonary bypass from becoming a new standard of care; the difficulty of initiating support, and suboptimal gas exchange rates with devices that are currently available.
The TandemLung kit offers a co-axial dual lumen cannula indicated for venous drainage and infusion as well as a quick prime membrane oxygenator & blood pump indicated for up to 6 hours of use. TandemLung provides a “time to decide” strategy with short term support during the acute event.
The TandemLung kit components are indicated for temporary cardiopulmonary bypass up to 6 hours.
