Development of Blood Pumps

To replace the beating heart during heart surgery

They propel blood and other physiologic fluids throughout the extracorporeal circuit; which includes the patient’s natural circulation as well as the artificial one

the ideal blood pump
The Ideal Blood Pump
  • Move volumes of blood up to 5.0 L/Min
  • Must be able to pump blood at low velocities of flow
  • All parts in contact with blood should have smooth surface
  • Must be possible to dismantle, clean and sterilize the pump with ease, and the blood handling components must be disposable
the ideal blood pump continued
The Ideal Blood Pump(continued)
  • Calibration should be easy, reliable, and reproducible
  • Pump should be automatically controlled; however, option for manual operation in case of power failure
  • Must have adjustable stroke volume and pulse rate
  • The average human heart can pump up to 30 liters of blood per minute under extreme conditions.
  • In the operating room setting this is not necessary due to may reasons:
    • patient is asleep
    • patient is given muscle relaxants
    • patient metabolic rate is greatly reduced
    • patient is cooled during CPB
types of blood pumps
Types of Blood Pumps
  • Kinetic Pumps
    • Centrifugal pumps
  • Positive Displacement Pumps:
    • Rotary Pumps
    • Reciprocating Pumps
centrifugal pumps
Centrifugal Pumps
  • The pumping action is performed by the addition of kinetic energy to the fluid through the forced rotation of an impeller
centrifugal pumps1
Centrifugal Pumps
  • Designed with impellers arranged with vanes or cones
  • Centrifugal pumps are magnetically driven and produce a pressure differential as they rotate
  • It is the pressure differential between the inlet and outlet that causes blood to be propelled
positive displacement pumps
Positive Displacement Pumps
  • This type of pump moves blood forward by displacing the liquid progressively, from the suction, to the discharge opening of the unit
positive displacement pumps continued
Positive Displacement Pumps (continued)
  • Rotary Pumps
    • Roller Pumps
    • Screw Pumps
  • Reciprocating Pumps
    • Pistons
    • Bar Compression
    • Diaphragm
rotary pumps
Rotary Pumps
  • Rotary Pumps
    • use rollers along flexible tubing to provide the pumping stroke and give direction to the flow
  • Archimedean Screw Pumps
    • a solid helical rotor revolving within a stator with different pitches so the blood is drawn along the threads
rotary pumps continued
Rotary Pumps (continued)
  • Multiple Fingers
    • the direction of flow is produced by a series of keys that press in sequence against the tubing
reciprocating pumps
Reciprocating Pumps
  • Pistons
    • this pump uses motor driven syringes that are equipped with suitable valves, delivering pulsatile flow
    • limited to low output capacity
  • Bar Compression
    • blood moves from the alternate compression and expansion of the tube or bulb between a moving bar and a solid back-plate
reciprocating pumps continued
Reciprocating Pumps (continued)
  • Diaphragm Pumps
    • with a flat diaphragm or finger shaped membrane made of rubber, plastic, or metal, blood is propelled forward
  • Ventricle Pumps
    • a compressible chamber mounted in a casing and are activated by displacement of liquid or gas in the casing
two most common pumps today
Two Most Common Pumps Today
  • Roller Pump
    • Advantages
      • Occlusive, therefore if power goes out the arterial line won’t act as a venous line
      • Out put is accurate because it is not dependent of the circuits resistance (including the patients resistance)
    • Disadvantages
      • Can cause large amounts of damage to blood (hemolysis) if over-occluded
two most common pumps today continued
Two Most Common Pumps Today (continued)
  • Centrifugal Pump
    • Advantages
      • Reduced hemolysis
      • No cavitation
      • No dangerous inflow/outflow pressures
      • Air gets trapped in pump
      • No need to calibrate
two most common pumps today continued1
Two Most Common Pumps Today (continued)
  • Centrifugal Pump
    • Disadvantages
      • Causes over-heating
      • Over heating promotes clotting
      • Difficult to de-air
      • If power goes out, arterial line acts like a venous line
two types of perfusion
Two Types of Perfusion
  • Pulsatile Flow (simulates the human heart)
    • Decreases peripheral resistance
    • Increases urinary flow
    • Better lymph formation
    • Increases myocardial blood flow
    • Need 2.3 times more energy to deliver blood in a pulsatile manner than with non-pulsatile flow
two types of perfusion continued
Two Types of Perfusion (continued)
  • Non-Pulsatile Flow
    • Simply means continuous flow
various opinions on pulsatile flow
Various Opinions on Pulsatile Flow
  • Advocates
    • It simulates the beating heart, aiding in preserving capillary perfusion and cell function
    • With the extra energy produced with pulsatile flow, we can avoid the closing down of the capillary beds.
various opinions on pulsatile flow continued
Various Opinions on Pulsatile Flow (continued)
  • Opponents
    • Pulsatile flow is a more complex procedure for minimal benefits
    • Capillary Critical Closing Pressure: (although never seen under microscope) The belief that when the pressure in the capillary system goes below a certain point the capillaries will close…reducing the gas exchange between the blood and the tissues
flow pressure and resistance
Flow, Pressure and Resistance
  • Blood Flow: defined as the movement of blood flow through the body, or in our case, the extracorporeal circuit
  • Pressure: defined as the force vector that is exerted at a 90 degree to that of blood flow
  • Resistance: the force vector opposite to that of pressure
the relationship between pressure flow and resistance
The Relationship Between Pressure, Flow and Resistance
  • Flow = Pressure / Resistance
  • Resistance = Pressure / Flow
  • Pressure = Flow X Resistance
laminar flow
Laminar Flow
  • Definition: Referring to blood flow, where all the layers run parallel to the walls of the blood vessels or tube
reynold s number
Reynold’s Number
  • An equation that enables us to determine whether blood flow is laminar or turbulent
  • R.N = 2 (fluid density)( average velocity)(r) (fluid viscosity)
  • If R.N. < 2000 flow is laminar
  • If R.N. > 3000 flow is turbulent
  • If R.N. between 2000 and 3000 flow unstable
reynold s number continued
Reynold’s Number (continued)
  • Blood acts as a Newtonian fluid, one that has a constant viscosity at all velocities
  • A thixotropic fluid : the viscosity is altered by changing velocities
  • Another important factor that effects the flow of blood
  • Viscosity = Shear Stress / Shear Rate
poiseuille s law
Poiseuille’s Law
  • Expresses how different variables effect flow. The most notable variable is radius of the vessel or tube.
  • Flow = (Pressure gradient)(3.14)(radius 4)
  • 8 (viscosity)(length)
  • The main source of resistance is the arterioles. This resistance comes after the pressure source (the heart) giving up peripheral resistance
  • TPR = MAP/F
  • TPR= Sum of all factors effecting the resistance to flow
resistance continued
Resistance (continued)
  • SVR= PA - PV / Q
    • PA= MAP
    • PV= RAP
    • Q= Flow Rate
  • SVR= (MAP-CVP/C.O.) X 80
  • When the heart contracts and the pressure rises, the highest point is called systolic pressure
  • When the heart relaxes and the aortic pressure reaches the lowest point.. this is called diastolic pressure
  • Mean arterial pressure = SP/DP
pressure continued
Pressure (continued)
  • Because vessels aren’t normally rigid, rather they are flexible, you will see a nice rise in the arterial wave form.
  • If the aorta, the most flexible vessel, is rigid, the systolic pressure would rise sharply. (A good diagnostic indicator)
  • The main source of resistance is the arterioles
  • Viscosity = Shear Stress / Shear Rate
  • F= (P1-P2) X 3.14 X r4/8L X Viscosity
