Medtronic has stopped the distribution and sale of the HVAD™ System as of June 3, 2021, and has notified physicians to cease new implants of the Medtronic HVAD™ System and transition to an alternative commercial LVAD for all future implants. Prophylactic explant of the HVAD™ System is not recommended at this time.
The HVAD waveform is a visualization of blood flow through the HVAD, which is generated by three factors:
Every 15 minutes, the controller records the flow from the waveform and the pump's speed and power into its logfiles. It also records all medium- and high-priority alarms at the time they occur. The controller can store up to 30 days of pump parameter data before overwriting the data in a first in/first out fashion.
When sent to the Autologs service, the data contained in the logfiles is charted and organized in a way to simplify pump performance interpretation. The data shown in the reports is summarized to help the user identify major and long-term trends.
