Risk Assessment

Description of Risk Possible Consequences Probability of Risk (H/M/L) Severity of Risk (H/M/L) Overall Risk (H/M/L) Contingency Plan
1 Sensors do not work together as planned More or different sensors will be needed increasing the budget M H M Test the sensors multiple times with different scenarios before board review
2 Heater can not stay constant Blood is shown to be damaged but no way of telling if it is due to heater or LVAD M H M Test the heater for extended periods of time to make sure it stays constant
3 Restrictor in loop can not produce the compression in the pipe to increase pressure for the LVAD LVAD will only be able to run at very few velocities M H M Test the restrictor and if it doesn't work provide an extension or buy a larger restrictor
