Speed and Simplicity.

The TandemLife Kit takes the complexity out of emergent rescue and can go anywhere you need it to be.

Why TandemLife?

Emergent severe life-threatening events, such as sudden cardiac arrest, severe respiratory distress, or traumas requiring immediate life-support, will strike more than a million Americans each year at any time or in any place. When these events occur, a rapid, easy to use device may be essential to survival. The market is already trending in this direction, but current temporary  cardiopulmonary bypass systems have a level of complexity that may inhibit the use of the device.

TandemLife was designed with this issue in mind, the easy to prime pump and oxygenator will enable you to stabilize the patient quickly. TandemLife provides more than quick support, it gives you time to assess patients’ conditions and determine a more long term strategy. Leveraging the TandemLife platform at the onset of the acute event will enable a transition to a higher degree of support later.

The TandemLife kit components are indicated for temporary cardiopulmonary bypass up to 6 hours.


  • Quick prime pump and oxygenator
  • Pre-assembled & packaged in a sterile priming basin
  • Lightweight, space-saving controller
  • Multiple configuration possibilities
