～Reducing Risk of Hyperkalemia and Making Safer Blood Transfusion
Adsorption and removal of excessive potassium from packed red blood cells with SAG-M preservative solution (RBC-SAGM) that have been irradiated and/or stored for a long period of time
Effects an exchange of excessive potassium ions (K+) with sodium ions (Na+) in RBC-SAGM
When dealing with human RBC-SAGM containing potassium concentration of 30 to 50mEq/L, at least 80% of the potassium is removed
The small volume: flow rate of less than 30mL/min.
The large volume: flow rate of less than 50mL/min.
