Saline will reduce the working life of the piston seal and is not recommended in the pump head. Saline may be used in the Model Heart but only distilled water should be between the pump head and the ventricle membrane.

The SuperPump may be used to provide pulsatile flow. To create a circulatory system, a pump head with check valves (model aortic and mitral valves) will also be required.
