Medical - Medical: Instruments / Oxygenator Testing
German term or phrase: Auslassschenkel
"Vor Beginn des Versuches werden Einlass und Auslass des Oxygenators mit 20 bzw. 30 ml Ringer-Lactatlösung gespült und das aufgefangene Volumen asserviert. Dann wird der Oxygenator in den Prüfstand integriert, wobei abweichend vom normalen Betrieb im Auslassschenkel des Oxygenators ein Filter mit einer 10µm-Filtermembran installiert wird."

Referring to lab testing of an oxygenator. I can't make any sense whatsoever of "Auslassschenkel" (other than outlet something or other) and can't find a translation for it anywhere. Gets less than 10 Google hits, so it's clearly a highly unusual and probably not even standard German word. TIA for any light you can shed on its meaning.
