Current research projects in the Cook Cardiopulmonary Engineering Group include thoracic artificial lungs, biofabricated tissue-based lungs, and perfluorocarbon
emulsions for pulmonary drug delivery.
As the refrigerants, we applied several types of non-conductive, thermally and chemically stable fluids, including silicone oil, soybean oil, and perfluorocarbon
structured refrigerant (Fluorinert, 3M Company).

Once a perfluorocarbon
liquid is added, the wicking process can lock the liquid on the surface and form a lubricating layer.
There are three major categories of substitute: gases (air, expansile gases), liquids (salt solution, perfluorocarbon
liquids, semifluorinated alkanes, silicone oil, etc.), and polymers (hydrogels, smart hydrogels, and thermosetting hydrogels) .
The majority of blood gas QC manufacturers use an aqueous buffered material or perfluorocarbon
Adhering the SLIPS coating to medical devices is a two-step process that begins with attaching a monolayer of perfluorocarbon
, a material similar to Teflon.
Its lead product, PHER-02, is an intravenous perfluorocarbon
emulsion that is highly efficient at dissolving and delivering oxygen to tissues.

Elastomers, Silicone Elastomers, and Others), by Application (Transportation, Electrical & Electronics, Healthcare, Consumer Goods, Industrial Machinery, and Others) - Global Trends & Forecast to 2019
Operative technique included pars plana vitrectomy, proliferative vitreoretinopathy management, use of intraoperative perfluorocarbon
liquid, retinectomy, endolaser and intraocular temponade.
* Measurements of airflow between zones using perfluorocarbon
tracer (PFT) gas testing
Our results showed that liquid perfluorocarbon
administered endobronchially was able to improve lung preservation and reduced the deleterious effects of IR injury.
