Life Support Simplified

Our History

TandemHeart was the trendsetter offering the world’s first short-term percutaneous cardiac support device. With LifeSPARC (TM), we’ve leveraged over 20 years of experience in advanced circulatory support to expand on the original vision of our company founders and bring breakthrough products to both the cardiac and respiratory support markets.

We strive to develop innovative, easy to use, temporary life support solutions for patients in need. On April 4, 2018, we were officially acquired by LivaNova, an industry leader in heart-lung machines and oxygenator technology.

With the new generation LifeSPARC system, several unique innovations are being brought to market and are set to become an essential asset in the hands of healthcare professionals. 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.
