What is Autotransfusion ?
Autotransfusion is an established technique for the collection and subsequent reinfusion
of the patient's own blood. It not only prevents transmission of diseases but also avoids
immunological complications of homologous transfusion. Autotransfusion permits greater
flexibility in the use of blood bank supply.
Advantages of Transfusion

blood storage facilities.

No incompatibility of product
No risk of alloimmunization.
Conserves blood banks supply.
EAT - SET is a system for recovering blood from internal bleeding. Its primary application
is for patients with internal haemorrhage. Such blood can be safely reinfused if processed

after a filtration process.
The main features of the EATSET
are as follows:
Rapid recovery of blood from internal haemorrhage.
Simple to use: Can be totally manually operated.
Closed system: No risk of infection transmission.
