Title: CONTROL DEVICE AND METHOD FOR A HEART PUMP
Abstract:
The invention relates to a control device (10, 10a, 10b) for a heart pump (3), comprising a device for establishing the end-diastolic filling pressure (19) in a ventricle and a device (10a) for associating a delivery rate of the pump, in particular a pump speed or an electric pump capacity, with the established end-diastolic filling pressure. By taking into account the end diastolic filling pressure, a robust operating option of the heart pump, similar to the physiological control, is created.
