Pump Demonstration Unit

This Pump Demonstration Unit shows how aortic pumps are inserted and operated. The unit is a representation of the ventricle and tricuspid valve. This valve is 3D printed in a flexible material (TPU) to accommodate larger pumps.

Once in operation the pump takes the water from the ventricle and pumps it through the tricuspid valve, this water then falls into the reservoir feeding the ventricle again, making a closed circuit of flowing water.

The pump cables and instruments are nicely held in place, on the back, keeping the unit compact and tidy. The unit also incorporates a handle so it’s easy to carry around.
