COVID-19 UPDATES:The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued guidance on April 6, 2020 to temporarily expand the availability of devices used in extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) therapy to address the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) public health emergency. As a result of the guidance, cardiopulmonary devices, including select devices from TandemLife | LivaNova, are now temporarily indicated for ECMO therapy greater than 6 hours.

The Right Tool for the Job.
With one cannula and two lumens, the Protek Duo kit gives you flexibility to do what’s right for each unique patient.
Why Protek Duo?
Every patient is different, requiring devices specific to their unique needs. The ProtekDuo kit is what is needed when a patient requires a treatment option all their own. Whether access at the RIJ is required for stable RA-PA placement or IVC-RA implementation is more favorable, ProtekDuo kit has you covered.
The ProtekDuo kit components are indicated for temporary cardiopulmonary bypass up to 6 hours.
Easy Right Internal Jugular Placement
The only RA-PA device available with an oxygenator
On patient device for optimum circuit organization

The cannula with all of the right moves. Protek Duo is designed to be implemented in multiple configurations. The patented omni-directional inflow/outflow ports mitigate recirculation and provide 360-degree flow.
Experience bypass in the palm of your hand. The TandemHeart Pump can be used in the Cardiac Catherization Lab or the Operating Room in a vast variety of configurations
VoyagerVest® (Vest sold separately)
Reduce complexity and increase comfort for patients and staff with VoyagerVest®, the first and only wearable ECLS platform. VoyagerVest keeps the VV ECLS circuit secure and organized with a custom designed holster and integrated tubing management
ProtekDuo Insertion Kit
(Kit sold separately)
The new Insertion Kit includes one flow directed PA catheter and one COOK® .035 Lunderquist® guidewire to enable smooth insertion of the ProtekDuo.
An electromechanical system with a simple graphical user interface and controls to make patient management easier and safer.
Space-saving design weighs just 21 lbs and attaches to a standard IV pole or to the bedside using an integrated mounting bracket
Battery backup supports at least one hour of unplugged operation during patient transport
100% redundant primary and back-up control mechanisms
Comprehensive self-diagnostics while the patient is on support will alarm to notify the patient caregiver of any problems, reducing the need for constant operator surveillance
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.
