Definition
 
enEnglish
Assisted Circulation definition: Pumping that aids the natural activity of the heart. (Dorland, 27th ed)
circulatory assist definition: surgical support techniques that with pumping aids the natural activity of the heart.
Heart-Assist Devices definition: Small pumps, often implantable, designed for temporarily assisting the heart, usually the left ventricle, to pump blood; they consist of a pumping chamber and a power source, which may be partially or totally external to the body and activated by electromagnetic motors; the devices are used after myocardial infarction or to wean the repaired heart from the heart-lung machine after open-heart surgery.
BED, ROCKING, BREATHING ASSIST definition: A rocking bed is a device intended for temporary use to help patient ventilation (breathing) by repeatedly tilting the patient, thereby using the weight of the abdominal contents to move the diaphragm.
Beds, Electric, Rocking definition: Electric beds that periodically tilt patients a small angle (e.g., 15 degrees) from the horizontal, placing them alternately in the Trendelenburg and reverse Trendelenburg position. These beds help breathing by using the weight of the abdominal contents to move the diaphragm and are also used in occlusive arterial diseases to improve circulation.
Circulatory Assist Units definition: Devices designed to either partially or completely support the patient's blood circulation. These units may be designed either for direct cardiac assistance or to assist the peripheral circulation; cardiac assist units usually consist of a combination of a main external (e.g., pumps) unit and internal (e.g., cannulae, balloons) devices, while peripheral assist units usually consist of completely external compression devices. Most circulatory assist units are intended for temporary use only.
Circulatory Assist Units, Cardiac definition: Circulatory assist units designed to facilitate cardiac blood pumping, either by reducing the load to the heart or by assisting the heart in its pumping function. There are several types of cardiac circulatory assist units, including external pumps and intracardiac balloons. Most circulatory cardiac assist units are used to maintain the body's heart function temporarily in patients who suffer cardiomyopathy or after open-heart surgery.
Circulatory Assist Units, Cardiac, Ventricular definition: Circulatory assist units designed to assist one of the ventricles (most frequently, the left ventricle) of a damaged or weakened heart in pumping blood. These units typically consist of a mechanism that includes a pump, cannulae to draw venous blood to the pump and deliver it back to the aorta or pulmonary artery (according to left or right ventricle assistance, respectively), valves, and a unit that controls pump operation. Ventricular assist units are used to improve blood circulation in patients with a debilitated heart; the main components of these devices work external to the body, but some components, such as cannulae and/or balloons, are inserted in the circulatory system. Ventricular assist units are intended for temporary use either while the heart is healing or as a bridge to a heart transplant.
Mechanical Ventilation definition: A method to mechanically assist or replace spontaneous breathing in patients by use of a powered device that forces oxygenated air into the lungs.
Reproductive Techniques, Assisted definition: Clinical and laboratory techniques used to enhance fertility in humans and animals.
