New perspectives on patient-focused cardiothoracic surgery.
With the MECC SYSTEM, perfusion is going minimal. This compact and closed system comprising a minimized set of disposables and hardware – a truly integrated solution reduced to essential components.
The MECC philosophy is more than just shorter tubing. With isolated cardiotomy suction, the external venous reservoir eliminated and priming volume significantly reduced, MECC is a more atraumatic solution for the patient.
MECC’s compact and less invasive approach has opened the door for a closer cooperation between surgeon, perfusionist and anaesthesiologist resulting in optimized patient management.
This minimized perfusion approach has opened the door to new patient management.
The MECC SYSTEM includes the QUADROX-i Oxygenator with or without integrated filter, VBT Venous Bubble Trap, cannulae of choice, ROTAFLOW centrifugal pump RF-32, ROTAFLOW Console, ROTAFLOW Drive, ROTAFLOW Emergency Drive and holders. The system is BIOLINE Coated from tip to tip.
