Cardiovascular Device Testing

For new classes of cardiovascular devices without existing testing standards, we break down complex device and pathophysiology into a justifiably simplified bench top test. Each will have well defined:

  • Operating conditions [inlet pressure, outlet pressure, internal chamber pressure (if applicable), inflow, outflow, relevant mock heart chamber pressures, cardiac output, and systolic duration
  • Test fluid properties (Chemical composition, temperature, viscosity, density, pH)
  • A priori defined acceptance criteria such as acceptable pressure drops, retrograde flow, etc.

Our test plans and reports are designed around approval bodies, thoroughly researched, and justified to ensure they are regulatory appropriate.
