～Reducing Risk of Hyperkalemia and Making Safer Blood
Adsorption and removal of excessive potassium from packed red blood cells with SAG-M preservative solution (RBC-SAGM) that have been irradiated and/or stored for a long period of time
Intended patients: fetuses, premature infants, neonates, infants who are receiving exchange transfusions or extracorporeal circulation treatments or patients who urgently need rapid and massive blood transfusion to safe their life
Effects an exchange of excessive potassium ions (K+) with sodium ions (Na+) in RBC-SAGM
When dealing with human RBC-SAGM containing potassium concentration of 30 to 50mEq/L, at least 80% of the potassium is removed
The small volume: flow rate of less than 30mL/min.
The large volume: flow rate of less than 50mL/min.
