Building on the design of Sorin’s C5 and S5 heart lung machines (HLM), the XTRA is an intuitive system.

A small volume disposable option also handles low blood volume loss typical in pediatrics and orthopedic cases.

Sorin Group Cardiopulmonary Business Unit and Intercontinental president Michel Darnaud said XTRA is designed to meet the most demanding blood management program requirements for ensuring patient safety and improving surgical outcomes.

"We are looking forward to extensively offer the benefits of our new XTRA system to both patients and clinicians", Darnaud said.
