Working Heart Upgrade for IH-5 Core System

IH-5 Working Heart

Upgrade an IH-5 Langendorff configuration to an IH-5 Working Heart (according to Neely) System.

  • Fully-ejecting working heart model for physiological cardiovascular studies in rat, guinea pig and rabbit
  • Allows rapid and easy switching between Working Heart (Ejecting Heart) and Langendorff modes.

Upgrade an IH-5 Lagendorff Core System to a IH-5 Working Heart (according to Neely) System by adding a Working Heart option and one of the species-specific additions.

The IH-5 Working Heart system provides a valuable toolfor the researcher who wishes to study cardiac functionand metabolism. Because the heart is fully ejecting, it is possible to accomplish a more comprehensive monitoring of functional parameters and the calculation of external heart work and mechanical efficiency. The proprietary afterload system eliminates water column bouncing,reducing stress and damage to cardiac valves.

Researchers who know they will be upgrading to working ejecting heart in the future typically start with a Langendorff Working Heart-Ready configuration. However, a Langendorff Only configuration can easily be modified to a Langendorff Working Heart-Ready configuration. Please contact our technical team for help!

Features & Benefits

  • Fully-ejecting working heart model for physiological cardiovascular studies, e.g. cardiac function and metabolism
  • Allows rapid and easy switching between Working Heart (Ejecting Heart) and Langendorff modes.


Applications


Measured Signals

All parameters of standard Langendorff plus the following signals can be recorded:

  • Preload (left atrial preload / ventricular filling pressure)
  • Afterload (determining the diastolic and systolic aortic pressure)
  • Left ventricular pressure or pressure-volume loops
  • Cardiac output (atrial flow), aortic and coronatry flow (either Direct of by subtraction of CO-Aortic Flow)
