Evaluation of the Pulse wave in the face for the patients with rotary blood pump (RP) in the Outpatient clinic

Abstract

Rotary blood pump (RP) is one of the most important devices in the treatment of profound heart failure and is known to reduce the pulse in the blood pressure waveform, especially when it is used for axial flow. In an outpatient clinic, checking the pulse of a patient implanted with an RP can help diagnose the patient's condition. For that purpose, animal experiments with healthy adult goats implanted with the EVAHEART system were carried out after obtaining ethical committee approval. Visual imaging of the goats' faces was recorded using a video camera. The pulse waves were clearly recorded using the newly developed pulse diagnosis system with video imaging and compared with laser Doppler flowmeter and time series data. Spectral analysis of the time series data showed the usefulness of video imaging from outside the body. Clinical applications are planned, and this newly developed method is expected to be a useful diagnostic method for evaluating the cardiac function in patients implanted with RPs in the future.
