Paper Abstract

Thromboembolic complications are one of the major problems in mechanical heart support of patients suffering from critical heart failure. The goal of the study was to present and discuss methodology of non-invasive assessment of embolization in rotary blood pumps. The study was carried out based on power consumption trend analysis as well as spectral analysis of acoustic signal produced by the pump during its operation. It has been demonstrated that the trend of power rising and presence of 3rd harmonic in acoustic spectrum corresponds to the clinical symptoms of pump embolization.
