As of yet there is not a solid work break down schedule but these are the items that will need to be completed.

  1. The sensors are not calibrated
  2. Heater is not set up
  3. Pressure sensor is not functioning properly
  4. Redesign of sensor location is needed
  5. Restrictor to increase pressure of system is to small
  6. Wires getting tangled
  7. Lab View program not working correctly
  8. Quick Connects cause pressure change
  9. Size
  10. Blood heating and cooling problems
  11. Adjustments of stepper motor controls (resistance/restrictor)
  12. Obtain a 2nd differential pressure sensor for the compliance
  13. Streamlining Lab View programs,
  14. Acquiring a USB DAQ for the Pulsatile Ventricular Simulator
  15. Finding the resistance to flow caused by the quick-connects,
  16. Acquiring a laptop or portable computer to be mounted and dedicated to the cart
  17. Better cleaning methods
  18. Ways to filter blood from the slaughter house
