Figure 3: The shell type setup is depicted in Figure 3. The shell encases the oxygenator inferior half so that the main and secondary discharge ports freely communicate with the shell inside. The shell is directly connected to the vacuum line and pressure is constantly regulated by air inflow through the superior port open to the operating room environment. An anesthetic gas sensor can be implemented to monitor the waste gas concentration inside the shell. Dotted arrows indicate the waste gas flow; solid black arrows indicate air flow
