Abstract
CURRENT CLINICAL PRACTICE FOR THE RETRIEVAL OF VENOUS AIR EMBOLI EMPLOYS A WITHDRAWL SYRINGE OR VACUUM BOTTLE AND IS USUALLY CONFUSING AND ERROR-PRONE, REQUIRING A MULTITUDE OF RESPONSES BY THE ANESTHESIOLOGIST TO PREVENT A CATASTROPHE. A COMPLETE VENOUS AIR EMBOLISM RETRIEVAL SYSTEM WILL BE FABRICATED AND TESTED IN DOGS. CONTINUOUS VENOUS EXTRA- CORPOREAL AIR DETECTION AND RETRIEVAL WILL BE COMPARED TO THE CONVENTIONAL DOPPLER ULTRASOUND TECHNIQUE AND AIR RETRIEVAL. AN AUTOMATED VENOUS AIR RETRIEVAL SYSTEM WITH REMOTE CONTROL SHOULD SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE CURRENT CLINICALMETHODS AND DECREASE THE MORBIDITY AND MORTALITY OF SUDDEN AIR EMBOLISM IS SURGICAL PATIENTS.
