Innovation and the Future of Perfusion

Michael Van Driel
  • Business Director Medtronic Extracorporeal Therapies
  • Medtronic
DAY 2 SPEAKER
SPONSOR

As we look towards the future of the role of the perfusionist, Medtronic is of the opinion that the perfusionist’s role and the accompanying technology need to develop along with the therapies outside cardiac surgery to enable the perfusionist in the current role to become more of an extracorporeal specialist beyond support in the cardiac theatre. We will present our view of the future and the role innovation has had thus far within the Medtronic portfolio as well as where technology development might take us in the future, looking at the needs of the patient and the needs of the clinician in terms of safety, data management, patient monitoring, and of course from a regulatory perspective. The latter cannot be understated as the regulations continue to evolve locally in the UK in a manner somewhat in parallel with the Medical Device Requirements in the European Union.
