Example text

When air fills the pump chamber, the pump is not able to develop sufficient pressure to expel it against the backpressure of the extracorporeal circuit. Whatever the impeller design, centrifugal pumps are all classified as non-positive displacement pumps – they will respond to changes in both pre-load and after-load with changes in flow rate, much as the native heart does. Centrifugal pumps require in-line monitoring of the flow rate that is accomplished in the Medtronic system, for example, by electromagnetic induction.

The priming volume of the circuit depends on the gas exchange device, the venous reservoir volume and the blood volume of the patient. It is feasible to avoid blood transfusion altogether at the expense of oxygen-carrying capacity. Recent caution with blood-borne diseases, among other reasons, has resulted in the priming solution of the pump being non-haemic in the majority of adult cases. A high haematocrit and excellent oxygen-carrying capacity can certainly be achieved with an all-blood prime, but at the expense of increased viscosity, haemolysis, potential for transfusion reaction, and transmission of infections such as hepatitis and HIV.

Perhaps surprisingly, non-occlusive pumps are associated with high rates of haemolysis as well as fully occlusive ones. This is due to turbulence, back-flow, and the build-up of kinetic energy within the tubing, as well as the need for faster revolutions, since less volume is displaced in each cycle. The best form of occlusion has been shown to be ‘just nonocclusive’, exhibiting the lowest rates of haemolysis. Blood cell trauma has been associated with increased speed and increased number of rollers, mainly because of their effects on shear stress, kinetic energy, friction heat and direct compressive action.
