Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0142758A2] An extracorporeal circuit (56) includes an arterial blood line (62) between an individual and a filter (34). A blood pump (92) in the arterial blood line circulates blood from the individual to the filter to remove waste. An air sensor (98) is located in the arterial blood line between the individual and the blood pump, to detect air in the arterial blood line before entering the filter.
