A thermally powered left ventricular assist system (LVAS) requires 20 W of heat dissipation either to the blood or to the surrounding tissues, such as the lung subcutaneous tissues. Postoperative systemic and local effects of heat dissipation were studied in 5 thermally powered LVASs and 2 heated blood pumps implanted in calves, and compared with 10… CONTINUE READING
