BP-50 Bio-Pump

Centrifugal Blood Pump

Indications, Safety, and Warnings


The Bio-pump is indicated for use only with the Medtronic Bio-Console pump speed controller to pump blood through the extracorporeal bypass circuit for periods appropriate to cardiopulmonary bypass procedures up to six hours.


Applying vacuum assisted venous drainage (VAVD) can reduce pump flow. Compensate by increasing pump RMP. Massive air entry into the pump will cause the pump to deprime and blood flow to stop. Stop the pump and remove air prior to resuming circulation. Establish and maintain a minimum pump speed to prevent retrograde flow. do not operate without flow for more than 30 seconds.
