DIIME is developing a new medical device intended for use in autotransfusion in cases of ruptured ectopic pregnancy and other traumas, where blood can be salvaged from the abdomen and cleaned for reinfusion when donor blood is not available. In these cases, a woman has a massive internal hemorrhage and desperately needs a transfusion, but donor blood is frequently unavailable. Sub-Saharan Africa suffers from chronic shortages of donor blood, which significantly detracts from the ability to provide life-saving surgical care. Hemafuse allows a clinician to safely salvage blood from the internal hemorrhage and filter and transfuse it. DIIME is working closely with clinicians in Ghana to commercialize the technology. To date, we have completed laboratory testing with reconstituted human blood, which showed no damage to the blood cells incurred with the device, and a comparison test between the soup ladle method and Hemafuse using fresh pig blood.
