Abstract

The cyclic flow of the Dosin® is useful in interventional radiology since it prevents clotting and increases the mixing with the blood. The flow rate varies from 0.03 mL/s to 5 mL/s and it is recommended to use fluid with a viscosity lower than 3 mPa.s. The outlet pressure is recommended below 300 mm Hg. The Dosin® must be replaced after each patient, alternatively after maximum 24h continuous use.
