P10454: VAD Test Loop


Scope Overview:

The Test Loop is going to be used to: test, record, and sample blood from a Left Ventricular Assistive Device (LVAD)

  1. Increase sensor capability and sensitivity
  2. Figure out the blood damage, pressures, and temperatures that an LVAD produces
  3. Identify flaws / problems that the previous teams have been suffering
  4. Fit and Finish
Final Goal:
  1. Understand how the LVAD being tested is affecting the blood
  2. Determining what would make it safe for human use
