Blood Monitoring Unit BMU 40
An inline monitoring device for continuous measurement of vital blood parameters during extracorporeal circulation.
The Blood Monitoring Unit BMU 40 is an inline monitoring device for continuous measurement of vital blood parameters during extracorporeal circulation. The measuring values are oxygen partial pressure (paO2) and temperature (Ta) on the arterial side as well as oxygen saturation (SvO2), hemoglobin (Hb), hematocrit (HCT), and temperature (Tv) again on the venous side. The values are displayed on a 10.4” touch screen monitor, offering enough space for the clear arrangement of the measuring values and the important display and control elements.
With the BMU 40 from Maquet, a unique barcode calibration system replaces the time-consuming and costly calibration procedures using calibration gases. In order to minimize any measuring tolerances while the heart-lung machine is in use, the calibration data of the BMU 40 sensors and the BMU 40 cells are set by Maquet in the factory and encoded in a label that is read with an integrated barcode scanner directly before use. In conjunction with the latest sensor technology, this enables unrivalled measuring precision.
Innovative sensor technology ensures optimized blood flow properties for maximum measuring precision
Calibration in less than 5 seconds*, without the need for calibration gas
Touch screens featuring numeric, graphic and tabular displays for ease of use; user-chosen alarm limits can be set for all measured parameters
An integrated battery pack ensures uninterrupted operation
BMU 40 sensors have minimal drift, providing accurate values throughout the procedure
The BMU 40 interfaces with data collecting software, such as JOCAP XL; data can be printed or downloaded via USB port
Smart and stable probe cuvette connection
