Use of Polypropylene and Polymethylpentene (PMP) Fibers for ECMO Oxygenators


Learn about the construction on hollow fiber oxygenators and the use of these for ECMO and cardiac surgery. Learn the reason for fiber wetting and failure and how fiber construction helps increase fiber longevity. Learn who manufactures PMP (Polymethylpentene) fibers and how PMP (Polymethylpentene) fiber shortages affected ECMO oxygenator availability and what alternatives are available to the clinician.
