  1. DEVELOPMENT OF IMPROVED CO(2) SCRUBBERS FOR USE IN RESPIRATORS

    SBC: Abel Company            Topic: N/A

    PHASE I OF THIS STUDY WILL VERIFY THE FEASIBILITY OF MAKING SUBSTANTIAL IMPROVEMENTS IN CO(2) SCRUBBER MATERIALS TO ALLOW SAFE AND EFFECTIVE USE UNDER CONDITIONS OF HIGH METABOLIC ENERGY EXPENDITURE PRODUCING CO(2E EXHALATION RATES IN EXCESS OF 2 LITERS PER MINUTE. THE FEASIBILITY STUDY WILL EXAMINE TWO APPROACHES: (1) MODIFICATION OF CA(OH)(2)-BASED ABSORBENTS TO ALLOW DRY STORAGE WITHOUT DECREAS ...

  2. VASCULAR STAPLER

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DESIGN AND BUILD A STAPLER FOR PERFORMING END-TO-END AND END-TO-SIDE ANASTOMOSES ON MEDIUM TO LARGE VESSELS, AND FOR REPAIRING BLOOD VESSELS AND VASCULAR ANEURYSMS, AND TO DEVELOP A SURGICAL PROTOCOL FOR ITS USE. THE METHOD PROPOSED USES A SPECIAL STAPLER AND CONFIGURATION OF STAPLES WHICH MINIMIZESBLOOD CONTACT WITH THE STAPLES, DOES NOT RESTRICT THE FLOW OF BL ...

  3. IN VIVO COINCIDENCE XRF MEASUREMENTS FOR HEAVY METALS

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    X-RAY FLUORESCENCE (XRF) IS THE MOST PRECISE METHOD OF MEASURING BODY AND ORGAN BURDENS OF HEAVY METALS IN VIVO. HOWEVER, THE REQUIRED PRECISION FOR SCREENING OF CHRONICALLYLOW-LEVEL-EXPOSED POPULATIONS FOR THESE METALS, IN PARTICULAR LEAD AND MERCURY, IS BETWEEN 5 AND 20 TIMES GREATER THAN ACHIEVABLE BY CURRENT METHODS. THIS PROJECT DESCRIBES AN INNOVATIVE VARIATION OF XRF THAT CAN PROVIDE AN IMP ...

  4. CONTINUOUS, AUTOMATED CONTROL OF IABP TIMING

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE EFFECTIVENESS OF INTRA-AORTIC BALLOON PUMP (IABP) THERAPY IS DEPENDENT ON PHYSIOLOGICAL AND PHYSICAL VARIABLES, PERHAPS THE MOST IMPORTANT OF WHICH IS THE SETTING OF IABP TIMING OF INFLATION AND DEFLATION RELATIVE TO THE CARDIAC CYCLE. THE OPTIMIZATION OF TIMING IS CURRENTLY HANDLED MANUALLY, DELEGATED TO A PUMP TECHNICIAN OR PERFUSIONIST, AND IS UPDATED ANYWHERE FROM SEVERAL TIMES AN HOUR TO ...

  5. Miniature Elctrohydraulic Total Artificial Heart

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The limited availability of donor hearts for people with end stage heart failure has driven the condevelopment of mechanical circulatory support systems (MCSSs). MCSSs can be broadly classified intocontinuous flow systems. Pulsatile systems drive blood indirectly through blood pumps, resulting inThis disadvantage of these systems, however, is their relatively large size. Continuous flow systemssim ...

  6. Remote Suture Placement--Laparoscopic Abdominal Surgery

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Minimal access abdominal surgery through the laparoscope has generally replaced surgical procedureslaparotomy for several common procedures, including cholecystectomy and appendectomy. More complicatgastrointestinal operations are also being attempted laparoscopically. Many of these procedures aretechniques which are not yet standard laparoscopic techniques. A basic surgical technique necessarythe ...

  7. Development of Calcification Resistant Valve Prosthesis

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Calcification of blood contacting surfaces has been the key impediment to the development of polymevalve prostheses and other polymeric implantables. The deposition of calcium plaques as hydroxyapatiand potentially leads to valve dysfunction. That calcification proceeds preferentially along surfacestress only exacerbates the problem. This work is based on the hypothesis that calcification along fa ...
