The present study compares the creation of free gas bubbles in five different bubble oxygenators and one membrane oxygenator, by use of Doppler ultrasound technique. The study was carried out on groups of male patients undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery. The results show that the bubble oxygenators produce a considerable amount of free gas bubbles, with variances based on type. The membrane oxygenator showed virtually no counts at all.
