When the open surgical wound has a smaller size - use CarbonMini®

CarbonMini® CO2 diffuser is a disposable device intended for the insufflation of CO2 into the cardiothoracic wound to reduce the risk of air embolism. CarbonMini® is designed for wounds with size up to 8 cm in diameter. CarbonMini® delivers CO2 with a variable flow of 3 L/min up to 8 L/min, dependent on wound size, without turbulence. This, together with a continuous overflow, results in a 100 % CO2 atmosphere within the cardiothoracic cavity.
