Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A new control strategy for a mock circulatory system (MCS) has been developed to mimic the Starling response of the natural heart. The control scheme is based on Suga's elastance model, which is implemented using nested elastance and pressure feedback control systems. The elastance control loop calculates the desired chamber pressure using a time-varying elastance function and the ventricular chamber volume signal. The pressure control loop regulates the chamber pressure according to this reference signal. Simulations and tests on MCS hardware showed that the elastance-based controller responds to changes in preload, afterload, and contractility in a manner similar to the natural heart. Since the elastance function is an arbitrary function of time, the controller allows modification of ventricular chamber contractility, giving researchers a new tool to mimic various pathological conditions which can be used in the evaluation of cardiac devices such as ventricular assist devices.
