Alongside the data analytics coming in from our patient study at Royal Derby Hospital, @ProfJillStewart and I have been developing our #Dialysis experimental simulator. The Aorta has now grown a Left Subclavian Artery, and subsidiary arteries which have fistulas to connect the patient to our Dialysis machine.
Still lots of work to integrate simulated cardiovascular control, but this part of the project is coming along well. A breakthrough has been proof of our ability to continuously monitor real-time blood pressure without connecting further monitoring devices to the patient. An additional advantage is that the monitoring regime is relatively robust to patient movement as it doesn’t rely on finger cuffs etc. – see oscilloscope trace below.
Also looking forward to our monthly data workshop this week, looking at characterisation and prediction of blood pressure response during Hemodialysis
