DIIME has developed a mechanical autologous transfusion device in conjunction with clinicians at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi, Ghana called Hemafuse. The device is meant to replace traditional autologous blood transfusions done commonly in developing countries where there are shortages of donated blood. Traditionally, the patient's own blood is filtered through gauze and mixed with anti-coagulant, often leading to severe complications. Hemafuse is a handheld, reusabale device that is a safer alternative to transfusions, specifically to address ruptured ectopic pregnancies. During surgery, the tip of the device is inserted into the patient's abdomen and blood is removed through manual suction. A filter removes clots and particulates.
