Abstract

Hemodynamic effects of atrial contraction with centrifugal pump type total artificial heart is unknown. In this study, we simulated an atrial contraction in a mock model. By the driving condition with higher pressure in the mock atrial model, the load during atrial contraction increased. Based on these findings, we examined atrial contraction in the animal using adult goats. Prior to the measurement, we installed a centrifugal-type ventricular assist device (VADs), and then clamped both ventricles. We measured the hemodynamic data without ventricular contractile functions in order to obtain the effect of atrial contraction on hemodynamics under the condition of the total artificial heart (TAH) circulatory support model. We could estimate the heart rate by revolution number and voltage of pumps. There might be a possibility that we could regulate autonomic nervous response with the control of cardiac output.
