  • Patent number: 6770049
    Abstract: A tube system comprising a blood inlet line with an arterial patient connection and a blood return line with a venous patient connection, where a rinsing liquid inlet line branches off from the blood inlet line downstream from the arterial patient connection, and a rinsing liquid return line branches off from the blood return line upstream from the venous patient connection is filled while maintaining sterility in that rinsing liquid is pumped from a rinsing liquid container through the rinsing liquid inlet line, the blood inlet line, the blood return line and the rinsing liquid return line, establishing a liquid connection between the rinsing liquid inlet line and return line. The venous patient connection is sealed liquid-tight with a venous safety cap, and the arterial patient connection is sealed liquid-tight with an arterial safety cap. The safety caps are removed from the patient connections for connecting the tube system to the patient.

  • Patent number: 5512046
    Abstract: A dosing device for volumetric dosing of a liquid additive which is added in a certain volume ratio to a fluid, in particular withdrawn blood, flowing in a first hose line, via a second hose line feeding directly or indirectly into the first hose line. The dosing device for the volumetric dosing of an anticoagulant fluid or a sedimentation accelerator is preferably provided in a system for the collection and retransfusion of autologous blood which has a hose or tube section which extends downstream from the junction, and also a drip chamber connecting downstream from the drip tube and a light barrier, the direction of action of which is arranged transversely to the fall path of the drops. In order to avoid incorrect dosing because of changing viscosities of the liquid flowing in the first hose line, and thus of changing drop sizes, two electrically-triggerable valve means, one of which is in each case inserted into one of the two hose lines, are provided.
