Current therapies for bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) for foreign matter removal involve the use of Saline or Surfactant to clear out debris. Saline lavage is particularly rough on the patient—it reduces PaO2, removes surfactant, can elicit a cough reflex, and is not very effective in removing debris from the lungs. Liquivent, a perfluorocarbon (PFC) compound liquid called Perflubron (PFOB), has notable advantages as a lavage medium that may reduce the risk of these known issues. OriGen has put together a white paper detailing these advantages.
