Removal of drugs and toxins by charcoal hemoperfusion.

Because time is so important Charcoal hemoperfusion is a method which takes advantage of the huge adsorption capacity of active carbon.  It is applicable to many cases of severe drug intoxication.

During this procedure the patient's blood is continuously perfused through a small cartridge containing charcoal granules.  The charcoal granules are encapsulated with a biocompatible cellulose membrane which protects cellular blood components from having direct contact with the charcoal.  However, toxic substances can easily pass the membrane and are adsorbed from the plasma.

The hemoperfusion cartridge Adsorba C is used when the physical state of the patient requires immediate elimination of toxic substances to maintain life.
