Title
(EN) ARTERIAL AIR CAPTURE CHAMBER
Abstract
(EN)

An arterial air capture chamber (101) is used in dialysis. The arterial air capture chamber (101) includes an upwardly extending fluid inlet (102) terminating in a fluid inlet port (105) positioned at about a 90° turn relative to a fluid flow of a fluid inlet tube (107). The arterial air capture chamber (101) includes a draw tube (104) with an opposedly positioned beveled opening (306) at about 180° relative to the fluid inlet port (105). The arterial air capture chamber (101) provides improved fluid dynamics, reducing both stagnant flow and turbulence. The arterial air capture chamber (101) also provides for bidirectional flow of fluid through the arterial air capture chamber (101).
