Bioengineering and Biomaterials in Ventricular Assist Devices (Emerging Materials and Technologies)
(as of Jun 11,2023 15:33:47 UTC – Details)
Often associated with artificial hearts, ventricular assist devices (VADs) are blood pumps that can provide circulatory assistance to the left ventricle, the right ventricle, or both. Bioengineering and Biomaterials in Ventricular Assist Devices reviews constructive details of VADs and the biomaterials used in their development and support.
Establishes an area of intersection between engineering and medicine
Shows process development from mechanical design to automation and control
Discusses biofunctional materials, tribology in ceramic biomaterials, biosensors, and surface engineering and blood
This text is aimed at advanced students, researchers, and practicing engineers conducting work on VADs and will be of interest to a broad interdisciplinary group, including bioengineers, materials engineers, chemical engineers, mechanical engineers, and electrical engineers.
