you cant use that oxygenetor next morning , the only option is to wash it with a lot of saline next morning and then prime it again. khan

Hi,
It should be good enough if you can utilise within 24 hours, use it after you circulate with the prime temperatures around 33 deg.C.  If not it is better to establish your own protocol after having proper screening for bacterial contamination at various points on the entire circuit after 2 days(this screening proves your sterile techniques, the quality of air circulating within the OR etc).  However, I may not use it more than 2 days having suspicion on the efficiency of gas exchange within the membrane fibers.
