Medical device technology / cardiovascular perfusion

The lab is used for practical training on modern medical devices in the medical engineering study programmes. Besides practicals, numerous practically oriented R&D projects from hospitals and industry are carried out in the lab. Practical training is carried out in the following specific areas:

  • Extracorporeal circulation: perfusion and dialysis
  • Imaging procedures: ultrasound and endoscopy
  • Intensive medicine: patient monitoring, artificial respiration and anaesthesia
  • Medical navigation

One area of focus in the lab is training in the use of medical devices under realistic conditions using patient simulators. The Centre for Applied Simulation is based in the lab for this purpose. In the CardioSim simulator, training can be given on extracorporeal circulation in a realistic operating theatre environment.
