Paper Abstract

The article presents the results of optimizing an illuminator structure, which is an integral part of the optical sensor, for determining the stroke volume and cardiac output of the extracorporeal pulsating heart prosthesis supporting the operation of the myocardium. The obtained results of the optimization were verified experimentally. The tests were carried out for various light sources. The following were taken into account: low and high-current LED diodes operating in the visible band, LED diodes operating in the near-infrared range and fiber optics. In addition to the results of the study, the paper presents problems arising during the use of particular types of illuminators and proposed ways to overcome them.
