Pelham company ready to test cardiac pump
However, with a mechanical engineering degree from MIT and a background working for several leading medical technology companies on blood and blood pumping technology, Vincent began looking at a better way to pump blood into patients undergoing open-heart and other surgeries.
The testing on the VentriFlo is made possible in part by a Granite State Technology Innovation Grant from the NH Innovation Research Center (NHIRC), which supports projects under development in the private sector.
“This device safely pumps oxygenated blood back into the body during cardiopulmonary bypass surgery with blood pressures and flow rates similar to native heart circulation,” he said. “By using these pumps to mimic natural physiology, patients will do better with fewer post-surgery complications, doctors will have better reported outcomes, and hospitals will save money.”
In addition to the NHIRC grant and the work with Dartmouth, Design Mentor is partnering with people for additional studies and has submitted a grant to the American Heart Association.
