Cardiovascular implants and extracorporeal systems-Centrifugal blood pumps
|Publication Date:||2 September 2016|
This document specifies requirements for sterile, single-use, extracorporeal centrifugal blood pumps, whether coated, non-surface modified, or surface-modified, intended for producing blood flow during extracorporeal circulation. Such blood flow is most commonly used to provide systemic perfusion during cardiopulmonary bypass, but also has applications for veno-venous bypass, kinetic-assisted venous drainage, or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. This document does not apply to
- centrifugal pumps used as ventricular assist devices, and
- other components of extracorporeal circuits (e.g. blood tubing, pump console/driver).
