Description

During the quarter covered by this progress report (December 15, 1971 to March 15, 1972), the effects of variations in arterial pressure and heart rate on cardiac ouiput, efficiency as measured at the heart diaphragm, maximum air chamber pressure, average input power to the heart diaphragm, maximum blood chamber pressure and volumetric efficiency have been determined at various atrial pressures for a 7 cm base Kwan-Gett artificial heart made of smooth Silastic and equipped with Silastic flap inflow and Silastic tricuspid outflow valves. One animal experiment has been completed in which the in vitro measurements made on the artificial heart ... continued below

Description

During the quarter covered by this progress report (December 15, 1971 to March 15, 1972), the effects of variations in arterial pressure and heart rate on cardiac ouiput, efficiency as measured at the heart diaphragm, maximum air chamber pressure, average input power to the heart diaphragm, maximum blood chamber pressure and volumetric efficiency have been determined at various atrial pressures for a 7 cm base Kwan-Gett artificial heart made of smooth Silastic and equipped with Silastic flap inflow and Silastic tricuspid outflow valves. One animal experiment has been completed in which the in vitro measurements made on the artificial heart were verified in vivo. A second animal experiment in which the output power of the artificial heart will be determined over a long period of time is now in progress. Preliminary consideration has been given to the establishment of a nuclear powered artificial heart system in vitro test program. A preliminary design of an artificial heart to be driven by a nuclear engine has been drawn. (auth)
