German to English translations [PRO] 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.
Quite good references there, and the peer grades helped make it that much more convincing. Many thanks David and everyone - appreciate your assistance greatly. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
