Medical
German term or phrase: Adsorber
Text about a machine which supllies blood to the body; this appears throughout the text; here is one eg.
"Patientendaten eingeben"
"Name:"
"Vorname:"
"geboren:"
"Adsorber:"
"Blutfluss:"
This is when the program is prompting someone to enter details about the person receiving the blood. HTH. Nick

Explanation:
it cannot be adsorbent because this is
"a substance that leads readily to
adsorption, such as activated charcoal
. . . " Taber's Medical Dictionary and
is called the same in German.

adsorbent is acc. to Tabor's interchangeable with absorbent. Here,
I found in Muret-Sanders German>English
a machine, called absorber (elctr.&phys./techn.). Under adsorber I found only adsorption chromatography, which does not fit your context, because
this would be a method to detect absorbents/adsorbents.
The definition in the Duden for absorber
is: Vorrichtung zum Absorbieren von Gasen, Strahlen etc. (absorbieren=
auf-/einsaugen).
