    Abstract

    Development of an inexpensive artificial organs is one of the most important issues. The objective of the research is to realize such a low-cost pulsatile blood pump, especially for use in acute congestive heart failure or postoperative low cardia output syndrome. This paper presents the design of the pneumatically-driven Spiral Vortex (SV) pump, which is originally developed in Australia.
