Peristaltic naturally artificial heart

+2  

A non-contact artificial heart, based on aorta (or another large vessel) and series of inflatable (with air or liquid) cuffs which wrap around it.

YAML 想法

So, one of the problems with artificial hearts is that it's not good to have non-natural materials in contact with blood for long periods of time. Clotting and grot-deposition is a problem, as is the junction between natural and artificial components.

How about a non-contact artificial heart? The surgeon would first dissect the aorta (or another large vessel) free of surrounding tissue, but without cutting it. The artificial pump would consist of a series of inflatable (with air or liquid) cuffs which wrap around the aorta. Individual cuffs can be inflated squeezing the aorta) or deflated. By inflating the cuffs in sequence, from one end to the other, you'd create a peristaltic wave travelling down the aorta, pumping the blood along.

The blood would not come into contact with anything non- natural; there is no blood-tight connection to be made anywhere; and the mechanical action should be gentle on the blood cells.

[PaulHDear],您介意,如果我將您的想法從Halfbakery鏈接到此處?

[PaulHDear], do you mind, if I link to your ideas from Halfbakery to here?


您好Mindey,希望這個答覆能收到。是的,請務必鏈接到我的HB思想:-)

Hi Mindey, hope this reply reaches you. Yes, by all means link to my HB ideas :-)


無論如何:-)

By all means :-)


好吧,最近看到了自動CPR方法(請查看[https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6393926713293705216](https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn :li:activity:6393926713293705216)),看起來便宜得多,可能每個家庭都有。

Well, recently saw the Auto-CPR approach ( check https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6393926713293705216 ), looks way cheaper, probably something to have at every home.


這些天沒什麼新東西嗎?當半面包店倒下時,不無聊...?

Nothing new these days? Not bored, when Halfbakery is down...?


//一定要:-)

這是可悲的看到你去,最大......於是,我想到的是把你的想法,這裏的生活,改變未來和過去,居然讓他們通過同樣有趣的過程實現的,他們進行了討論。

我聽到你說,一定要這樣做。

// By all means :-)

It's sad to see you go, Max... So, I am thinking of bringing your ideas to life here, to change the future and past, and actually getting them realized through a similarly fun process, that they were discussed.

And I'm hearing you saying, do so, by all means.
