Magnetic Pump for Augmenting Fluid Circulation in a Body Using IABP
Human life depends on several essential fluidic functions. Such functions can be jeopardized when abnormalities emerge because of illness or other situations, and the patient may require temporary or permanent augmentation. This is done with mechanical circulatory support or a support device.
Intra-aortal augmentation is critical for the treatment of cardiogenic shock and the patient's life. In this process, Intra-aortic balloon pumps use large and difficult-to-transport pneumatic systems to initiate augmentations. It, therefore, becomes necessary to replace these mechanisms with ones that are more compact and portable. The magnetic pump invention based on IABP is portable, and mobile, allowing users to move around. The device reduces carrying costs by 60-70%, making the device more affordable and allowing it to penetrate developing markets more deeply.
Its lightweight and durable design allow for long-term therapy while allowing patients to carry it in a tiny bag, increasing their quality of life.
