In a previous journal article, the author used a heart-lung machine as an example when deciding on an automatic(perfusionist-less) control system. I think he had a PLC, a computer or a custom built system as the choices.

Does this mean that there is research going on into such a machine?
If there is ,does anyone have any details?

Hi there,

I don't think I read the article to which you refer so not sure about the exact details of the heart-lung machine which was discussed. However, I do believe that Heart-Lung machines (cardio-pulmonary bypass) have been available for some time and are routinely used in hospitals for things such as open-heart surgery when the heart must be stopped momentarily.

Hope that helps.
