17. Will the Hemosep device aid in the reduction of post-operative bleeding?

Post-operative bleeding is a major factor in any major surgery, there are several factors surrounding the cause of this. One factor is the reduction in clotting factors associated with the current practice of only giving a patient back the red blood cells therefore reducing the clotting agents in the blood and the Hemosep device. The Hemosep device recycles the blood in all cell species, retaining the residual clotting factors in the concentrate; this in turn will aid in the reduction of post-operative bleeding and potential help in the reduction of surgery.
