Arthro-Tube product series are an enhanced and cost efficient tubing alternative to the FMS tubings, intended to be used and CE-marked accordingly with the FMS 4/4+ and FMS DUO/DUO+ pumps. These are some of the special features with Arthro-Tube:
Note. To use Arthro-Tube in conjunction with the FMS pumps, a blue and red adapter is needed for correct fitting of the tubes to the holder.
Arthro-Tube product line consists of 3 different tubings. Artrho-Tube Day Set that connects the irrigation bags to the Irrigation tubing (Single) via the spikes and the pressure chamber, where the pressure is read through a Gore-Tex filter to a build-in transducer. The Patient Set consist of two (2) different tubes, the Single (or irrigation tube) connects the Day Set to the scope sheath and the Patient Set that connects the Shaver suction or the outflow cannula through the pump to the waste.
When doing an arthroscopy with both inflow and outflow you need a Arthro-Tube Day Set, which can reused for one surgical day, and a Arthro-Tube Patient Set, which is disposable and should be thrown away after every procedure. If the pump is used in inflow mode only you need Arthro-Tube Day Set (already mounted on the pump) and an Arthro-Tube Single.
