Life support simplified.

For more patients, in more places. Built on more than 20 years of life support experience with TandemLife, LifeSPARC provides temporary support for emergent rescue patients in a variety of hospital settings.

The system is built around a common compact console and pump, and four ready-to-deploy kits. Designed for ease of use, LifeSPARC offers more power and versatility for multi-disciplinary programs to support more patients.

WHY LifeSPARC?

Millions of patients are affected by cardiac and respiratory disease each year. LifeSPARC is designed to ensure that more of those patients can be supported with a system that is easy enough for new practitioners and powerful enough for expert-level hospital centers.

LifeSPARC leverages a common compact console and pump to temporarily support emergent rescue patients in a variety of hospital settings. The system offers a streamlined user interface and 40% more power despite a smaller, lighter controller which is half the size of the previous generation.

The LifeSPARC system offers a new streamlined experience for users versus the previous generation. The new platform includes simple solutions to help simplify temporary cardiopulmonary bypass so that more patients have access to this high degree of support.

*In the U.S., the LifeSPARC system is intended to pump blood through an extracorporeal circuit for periods lasting less than six hours for the purpose of providing either: (i) full or partial cardiopulmonary bypass (i.e., circuit includes an oxygenator) during open surgical procedures on the heart or great vessels; or (ii) temporary circulatory bypass for diversion of flow around a planned disruption of the circulatory pathway necessary for open surgical procedures on the aorta or vena cava.

LifeSPARC Upgrades include:

  • Up to 8.0 L/m of flow compared to 5.0 L/m
  • Increased power
  • Only sterile on-patient pump without infusion line
  • Quick prime
  • Lightweight & portable
  • Simple user interface

LifeSPARC Platform Components

Simplicity

LifeSPARC is ideal for multi-disciplinary programs. A lightweight controller and docking station featuring four simple screens are built to help manage patients with confidence. The streamlined user interface helps minimize the learning curve and training can be supplemented with the XL Alliance Training programs.

Power

The pump is designed for a rapid, repeatable deployment process, an essential factor to initiate advanced circulatory support in diverse clinical environments. A small but powerful pump, capable of 8LPM of blood flow, with a magnetic bearing, supports a variety of cardiac and respiratory rescue conditions. The integrated pump head and motor can be placed in the sterile field and on the patient, reducing the overall circuit surface area, simplifying patient management.

Versatility

The LifeSPARC system can be primed in minutes enabling temporary circulatory support anywhere and anytime it is needed. With a two-hour battery backup, the LifeSPARC controller can be removed from the docking station and carried via strap to make in-hospital transport less cumbersome.

LifeSPARC Kits

The LifeSPARC system is complemented by four specialized kits that enable a variety of cannulation strategies with:

• ProtekDuo LS
• TandemHeart LS
• TandemLife LS
• TandemLung LS

IM-02623

LifeSPARC: In the U.S., the LifeSPARC system is intended to pump blood through an extracorporeal circuit for periods lasting less than six hours for the purpose of providing either: (i) full or partial cardiopulmonary bypass (i.e., circuit includes an oxygenator) during open surgical procedures on the heart or great vessels; or (ii) temporary circulatory bypass for diversion of flow around a planned disruption of the circulatory pathway necessary for open surgical procedures on the aorta or vena cava.

TandemHeart Controller: The TandemHeart Escort Controller is intended to be used with the TandemHeart System. The TandemHeart System consists of the TandemHeart Blood Pump, a single use, disposable device; the TandemHeart Escort (T.H.E.) Controller, a reusable control system for the TandemHeart Blood Pump; and disposable accessory items used in conjunction with the TandemHeart System.

TandemHeart Pump: The TandemHeart pump is intended to pump the blood through an extracorporeal circuit for periods lasting less than 6 hours for the purpose of providing either: (i) Full or partial cardiopulmonary bypass (i.e., circuit includes an oxygenator) during open surgical procedures on the heart or great vessels; or (ii) Temporary circulatory bypass for diversion of flow around a planned disruption of the circulatory pathway necessary for open surgical procedures on the aorta or vena cava.

TandemLung Oxygenator: The TandemLung Oxygenator is intended for use in an extracorporeal circuit requiring cardiopulmonary bypass for application duration limited to six hours. Within the specified flow rate range, the device oxygenates the blood and removes carbon dioxide from the blood. Responsibility for clinical application of the oxygenator rests solely with the attending physician.

ProtekSolo 62 and 72 cm Transseptal Cannulae: The Transseptal Cannula Set-EF is intended for transseptal catheterization of the left atrium via the femoral vein for the purpose of providing a means for temporary (six hours or less) left ventricular bypass when connected to the TandemHeart extracorporeal blood pump, which returns blood to the patient via the femoral artery or other appropriate site.

ProtekSolo Venous Cannula: The Venous Cannula and Obturator is intended to cannulate vessels, perfuse vessels or organs and/or connect with accessory extracorporeal circulatory support equipment. The cannula obturator is intended to facilitate proper insertion and placement of the cannula within the vessel for extracorporeal circulatory support. These devices are to be used by a trained physician only.

ProtekSolo 15 and 17 Fr Arterial Cannulae: The Femoral Arterial Cannula and Introducer are intended to cannulate vessels, perfuse vessels or organs, and/or connect with accessory extracorporeal circulatory support equipment for a duration of six hours or less. The cannula introducer is intended to facilitate proper insertion and placement of the cannula within the vessel for extracorporeal support. These devices are to be used by a trained physician only.

ProtekDuo 29 and 31 Fr and ProtekDuo RD 31 Fr Veno-Venous Cannulae: The ProtekDuo Veno-Venous Cannula Set is intended for use as a single cannula for both venous drainage and reinfusion of blood via an internal jugular vein during extracorporeal life support procedures.

VoyagerVest: The Voyager Vest is intended to provide secure attachment of Extracorporeal Life Support (ECLS) components (pump, oxygenator, and tubing) to the patient during cardiopulmonary bypass.
