Inspire Family of Adult Oxygenators

Personalized perfusion and proven performance 

Inspire Oxygenator
Inspire Oxygenator Device

Complete Family of Adult Oxygenators

InspireTM is a complete family of adult oxygenators designed from years of research and laboratory experience, input from clinical experts from around the world and the application of advanced manufacturing technologies that adhere to the highest quality standards. 

Prior to the introduction of Inspire, small adult devices were considered the benchmark for optimized perfusion, but were limited in flow to 5 l/min. 

Inspire 6 optimized adult oxygenator systems to extend the benefits of small adult devices to a wider patient population.

Powerful, Consistent Performance

The Inspire family allows clinicians to safely run perfusion procedures while ensuring powerful, consistent performance. 

  • In Inspire, the long path oxygenator membrane with remarkably efficient longitudinal flow design allows high levels of gas exchange at all rated flows. 
  • Its polyurethane heat exchanger is capable of highly efficient heat transfer. 

Low Hemodilution2

  • Low dynamic operating volume (DOV). 
  • Inspire devices are characterized by the lowest minimum operating level in the reservoir (150 ml), outstanding low venous filter dynamic hold-up volume and low prime oxygenator modules.  

Effective Gaseous Micro Emboli (GME) Control

Literature studies report correlation between embolic load and neurological deficit.3,4

  • The Inspire reservoir design and oxygenator geometry contribute to GME reduction.
  • The use of Inspire’s integrated arterial filter further helps improve GME removal capacity.

Designed with Reduced Blood Contact Surface Area

Inspire is designed with a reduced blood contact surface area, helping minimize blood reaction to foreign surfaces. In addition:  

  • LivaNova has designed a uniform biocompatible surface treatment that features phosphorylcholine (PC).4 
  • Inspire adult oxygenators are manufactured with NO-DEHP material to further improve biocompatibility. 
  • The unique design of the Dual Reservoir ensures activated suction blood sequestration.5,6 
Fully modular system

The Most Complete Range of Flow Sizes for Adult Oxygenation

Inspire is a fully modular oxygenator system. The 21 different integrated models can be created by flexibly combining oxygenator modules and venous reservoirs. 

Inspire HVR and HVR Dual feature one of the lowest minimum operating levels on the market, which contributes to a reduction in patient blood hemodilution.1 

Safe, Easy and Flexible for All Adult Patient Sizes

The Inspire family is flexible and versatile.  

  • The compact oxygenator system requires minimal storage space.  
  • The simple bracket design allows easy and fast mounting of the oxygenator system. The bracket is available with a regular screw clamp and fast lock mechanism.  
  • Port orientation and system priming have been optimized to offer easy set-up and operational flexibility. 
Safety Information

1. INDICATIONS FOR USE / INTENDED PURPOSE 

Inspire Oxygenator (Models: Inspire 6, Inspire 7, Inspire 8)  

The devices are indicated for adult and small adult patients undergoing surgical procedures requiring cardiopulmonary bypass 

The devices are extracorporeal circulation devices used to replace the patient respiratory function during cardiopulmonary bypass procedures. They are used in an extracorporeal perfusion circuit to oxygenate and remove carbon dioxide from the blood, and to cool or warm the blood during cardiopulmonary bypass procedures. 

The devices must be to be used up to 6 hours or less. 

Inspire Oxygenator with integrated arterial filter (Models: Inspire 6F, Inspire 7F, Inspire 8F)  

The devices are indicated for adult and small adult patients undergoing surgical procedures requiring cardiopulmonary bypass. 

The devices are extracorporeal circulation devices used to replace the patient respiratory function during cardiopulmonary bypass procedures. They are used in an extracorporeal perfusion circuit to oxygenate and remove carbon dioxide from the blood, and to cool or warm the blood during cardiopulmonary bypass procedures. 

The integrated arterial filter provides filtration against air and solid emboli. 

The devices must be to be used up to 6 hours or less. 

Inspire Cardiotomy/venous reservoir (Models HVR, and HVR dual) 

The devices are indicated for adult and small adult patients undergoing surgical procedures requiring cardiopulmonary bypass. 

The devices are extracorporeal circulation devices allowing oxygenators to exploit gas exchange for the replacement of patient respiratory function during cardiopulmonary bypass procedures., providing dynamic patient’s venous blood collection. They also defoam and filter venous blood and suction blood through a filtering system made of antifoam agent and filter screen. Can be used post-operatively for chest drainage.   

The devices must be to be used up to 6 hours or less. 

2. CONTRAINDICATIONS 

No contraindications are known if the device is used for the purpose described and in accordance with the stated operating conditions. Do not use the device for any purpose other than indicated. 

3. WARNINGS  

The device must be used in accordance with the instructions for use provided in the Instructions for Use. . For a complete listing of warnings please refer to the Instructions for Use which accompany each product 

4. PRECAUTIONS  

Federal law (U.S.A.) restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician. For a complete listing of precautions/cautions please refer to the Instructions for Use which accompany each product 

5. ADVERSE EVENTS 

The following table summarizes harms potentially arising during the use of the medical device, including those related to the intrinsic risks of extracorporeal circulation:. Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (SIRS), Hypoperfusion / Hypoxia, Embolism / Hypovolemia / Sepsis / Infection / Fever / Shock/ Allergic reactions / Cyto-toxic reactions / Genetic mutation / Cancer / Haemolysis / Organ damage / Acid base imbalance (only for oxygenator) / Cross contamination / User contamination / Environment contamination / Thrombosis / Impaired hemostasis / Blood activation / Bleeding / User skin tears and  Pneumothorax (only for cardiotomy/venous reservoir)  

6. PERFORMANCE INFORMATION
