MILL

MILL is designed to greatly simplify existing methods of extracorporeal removal of CO2 from the blood.

An intravascular catheter placed into the patient’s cava contains a membrane surface that is flushed with a CO2 absorbing liquid.
The CO2 is transferred into the absorbing fluid and across the surface of the membrane where it can be removed from the body.
At the same time, the membrane surface introduces O2 into the bloodstream.

An e-bike of breathing.

Just like an e-bike still requires the rider to pedal, MILL supports the patient’s natural breathing and moves the exchange of gas into the patient’s body. The system utilizes a control unit to continuously monitor CO2 levels in the blood.
The result is effective support of the patient’s normal gas exchange that is tailored to her actual requirements.

Reduce costs - improve safety

MILL is, in many respects, superior to conventional extracorporeal methods of CO2 elimination and membrane oxygenation (ECMO): operational and support expenses are minimal, the patient remains ambulatory, and the risk of hemorrhaging can be drastically reduced.
What’s more, the patient is not subjected to unnaturally high respiratory pressures frequently associated with mechanical respirators which, in severe cases, generate high enough shearing and tensile forces to cause tears and inflammation of the alveo

Acute or chronic

MILL is aimed at all types of several pulmonary failure, whether acute due to infection or chronic (COPD).

Patients with Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease of COPD frequently suffer acute deterioration of their health, often known collectively as “exacerbations”.
The primary cause of this condition is infection that can lead to acute hypercapnic lung failure.
The patient’s chance of survival can be drastically improved if both intubation and mechanical respiration can be avoided.
Such patients will benefit tremendously from a method that removes CO2 from the blood while allowing for full mobility, i.e. (ambulatory ECMO).
