    • Abstract

       

      In vitro evaluation of an oxygenator is an integral part of its development. In order to obtain meaningful data the test conditions must be standardised. The natural lung offers a large surface area for gas exchange and provides excellent oxygenation over wide range of blood flows. Consequently it should act as a good deoxygenator too. Our experience in using a sheep lung for deoxygenation is described.
