Hemodynamic Stabilization

Reference number
Coordinator Lunds universitet - Institution för reglerteknik
Funding from Vinnova SEK 1 988 913
Project duration September 2016 - January 2019
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

Our overall goal is to decrease the current organ shortage through better preservation of organs between donor brain death diagnosis and extraction. Within the project, we have advanced our method to pharmacologically stabilize hemodynamics in brain dead donors, which is a necessity to reach our goal. The stabilization is achieved through an automatic control system, which frees resources.

Expected effects and result

We have developed our method within a preclinical model and are currently expanding the intended application area to include a circulatory death scenario and use during ongoing ex vivo heart function evaluation, taking place before the heart is implanted into the recipient.

Planned approach and implementation

The stakeholders have a long experience of collaboration and a well-established method of developing medtech innovations. Through performing all development, prototyping and preclinical evaluation in-house, we maintain a short path between idea and verification. Through this, we have managed to increase the technical readiness of the project to a level, necessary for a future clinical study.
