ASAIO (formerly known as the American Society for Artificial Internal Organs) is a member-driven organization that has positioned itself at the collaborative crossroads of Science, Engineering and Medicine, and supports medical device research, development and discussion of best practices, clinical outcomes, and opportunities.
The VENTRIFLO® True Pulse Pump™ is a novel, truly pulsatile blood pumping system designed to achieve superior outcomes, reduce costs and improve safety for pediatric & adult patients who require cardiopulmonary support during surgery or in the ICU.
Doug Vincent, Design Mentor’s President states, “ASAIO’s annual meeting is an excellent opportunity for us to connect with more of the world’s top clinicians and researchers. In representing our technology at this meeting, we can expand our network of clinicians and researchers who understand both the extraordinary contribution of the historical technology used for cardiopulmonary bypass blood pumps, and the magnitude of the benefits our innovative technology may bring by truly mimicking the human heart beat. As simple as it sounds, no extracorporeal pump exists today that can deliver a complete stroke volume into the native circulation at a natural cadence, with a physiologic rest—all through typical oxygenator and cannula. Without all three of these key elements, blood flow from existing devices is unnatural and may result in unintended complications to other critical organs beyond the heart.”
Vincent continues, “We’ve collaborated with several leading cardiac centers such as Cleveland Clinic, Dartmouth, Emory/Georgia Tech, and MGH that have showed very promising bench-top and in-vivo results, including maintaining well-regulated systemic- and micro-circulation during extended (6 hour) CPB. And we look forward to forging more clinical relationships to advance development and expand testing.”
VENTRIFLO is a proprietary technology developed by Design Mentor Inc., a Pelham, New Hampshire company, and is a registered trademark. Supported by an experienced team and a highly esteemed scientific advisory board, the company is actively seeking investment for the next phase of product development and FDA submission.
