  • Publication number: 20210346678
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for detecting a state of wear of a cardiac support system. The method comprises a read-in step and a determination step. During the read-in step, a sensor signal (315) representing an operating state of the cardiac support system is read in. During the determination step, a wear signal (325) is determined using the sensor signal (315) and a comparison rule (320). The wear signal (325) represents the wear condition.

  • Publication number: 20210316133
    Abstract: The invention relates to a motor housing module (110) for sealing a motor compartment of a motor of a heart support system. The motor housing module (110) has at least one feed-through portion (205), at least one feed-through line (210), and at least one contact pin (215). The feed-through portion (205) is designed to establish an electrical connection between the heart support system and a connection cable in order to externally contact the heart support system. The at least one feed-through line (210) is embedded in the feed-through portion (205) and extends through the feed-through portion (205). The feed-through line (210) can be connected to the motor and to the connection cable. A first end of the at least one contact pin (215) is embedded in the feed-through portion (205) and a second end of the contact pin (215) projects from the feed-through portion (205) on a side facing away from the motor compartment.

  • Publication number: 20210053052
    Abstract: A microfluidic device for processing a liquid in ludes at least one pneumatic substrate with a pneumatic cavity and a fluidic substrate with a fluidic cavity for accommodating the liquid. The fluidic cavity is arranged opposite the pneumatic cavity. In addition, the microfluidic device has a flexible membrane which is arranged between the pneumatic substrate and the fluidic substrate. The flexible membrane is designed to fluidically separate, from one another, a fluidic chamber extending at least in part in the fluidic cavity and a pneumatic chamber extending at least in part in the pneumatic cavity. The microfluidic device further includes a first pneumatic channel for applying a first pneumatic pressure to the pneumatic chamber and a second pneumatic channel for applying a second pneumatic pressure to the pneumatic chamber.
