Abstract:

The purpose of this contract is to develop a portable extracorporeal life support ECLS device and a vascular access system. Part of this project includes the development of a non thrombogenic surface to allow ECLS with minimal or no system anti-coagulation. During the first year of the contract the components for the prototype device have been assembled, the nonocclusive peristaltic pump has been tested in detail, and a non thrombogenic nitric oxide releasing surface has been developed and tested in our rabbit model.
