Dear perfusionists,

If you had a choice of choosing a cell saver, what would you choose and why? I have two options: 1- Medtronic/ Autolog
2- Sorin/ Electa

Your help is highly appreciated.

In our practice we use the AutoLog and have been quite happy with it.  We cover the cardiac program, some vascular cases orthodepic surgery and post-op washing and a trauma center.  The AutoLog does everything fine.  Ther only "tricky" part about AutoLog is that the valve tubing has to be intered into the valve just right or you will only get error messages.  It's not hard to learn with a little practice.
