All his life, Rand T’Ash has looked forward to meeting his HeartMate, with whom he could begin a family. Once a street tough, now a respected nobleman and artisan, he has crafted the perfect HeartGift, which, in the custom of the psychically gifted population of the planet Celta, is the way a man finds—and attracts—his wife… Danith Mallow is irresistibly drawn to the magnificent necklace on display in T’Ash’s shop, but she is wary of its creator, despite an overpowering attraction. In a world where everyone is defined by their psychic ability, Danith has little, placing her at the opposite end of the social spectrum from T’Ash. But T’Ash refuses to accept her rejection and sees it as a challenge instead. They are HeartMates, but can T’Ash persuade his beloved to accept her destiny by his side?

The most recognized risk associated with the HeartMate II is thrombosis. In the presence of developing clot, the HeartMate II Display Monitor and System Controller senses a decrease in pump flow and is accompanied by audible and visual alarms when flow rates drop below a certain threshold; however, when flow is completely inhibited, the Display Monitor and System Controller both fail to indicate that flow has reduced to zero and does not produce any corresponding alarms. To test the efficacy of the HeartMate II alarms, the Donavan Mock was used to simulate the hemodynamics of a typical heart failure patient. The hemodynamics were then improved by the addition of the HeartMate II LVAS. Partially occluding the inflow and outflow of the HeartMate II did display changes in flow and presented with alarms when appropriate; however, complete occlusions of the device failed to produce any alarms or accurate changes in flow.

Visualization of the Outlet Flow from the HeartMate II Left Ventricular Assist Device Using Laser Doppler and Particle Image Velocimetry

Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) are implanted in patients with a diseased ventricle to maintain peripheral perfusion or as a bridge to cardiac transplant. However, patients with an implanted LVAD, such as the HeartMate II (HMII), have experienced bleeding episodes in the abdomen. These incidents are likely caused by the cleavage or proteolytic breakdown of von Willebrand Factor (vWF), a protein in the clotting cascade. To determine the LVADs potential contribution to vWF mechanical destruction, in vitro studies were conducted to quantify the flow at the outlet of the HMII using particle image velocimetry (PIV) and laser Doppler velocimetry (LDV) under steady and pathophysiological conditions.In the steady flow experiment, the HMII was connected in series with a compliance chamber and operated at 8800 100 RPM with an 80 mmHg rise across the pump, producing a flow rate of 3.2 0.1 L/min. The second experiment included a pulsatile pump with the LVAD and compliance chamber inducing pulsatility through the HMII for a total flow rate of 5.0 0.1 L/min. The pulsatile pump was operating at a rate of 105 beats per minute with a stroke volume of approximately 50 mL. Velocity profiles, Reynolds shear stresses (RSS), Reynolds normal stresses (RNS), and turbulence intensities (TI) were used to visualize the outlet flow in the cannula both quantitatively and qualitatively. Under both steady and pulsatile conditions, shear stresses orders of magnitude higher than those needed to unfurl and cleave vWF were observed in the outlet cannula. This evidence, in conjunction with high turbulence intensity values and stark contrasts in velocity profiles in certain regions, points to the positive correlation between continuous flow VADs and the potential proteolytic cleavage or mechanical destruction of vWF. Prolonged exposure of these flow conditions may lead to acquired von Willebrand Disease, which can lead to uncontrollable bleeding episodes in the abdominal region.

“A wonderful, gripping mix of passion, exotic, futuristic settings, and edgy suspense.”—Jayne Castle In HeartMate, Robin D. Owens swept us away to the planet Celta, where psychic talents are the key to life—and love! Midwest Book Review predicted that “readers will want Ms. Owens to return to Celta for more tales.” And the prophesy has come true—with Heart Thief… Ruis Elder never asked for his unusual trait—the ability to neutralize others’ psychic talent. Because of it, he has always been hated in his own homeland, destined to roam the harsh planet alone. But trouble finds him in front of the ruling Council—and face-to-face with the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. There’s only one problem: Ailim is on the opposite side of the bench… Ailim has never before felt such passion coursing through her as she feels in Ruis’s presence. And she never thought she would—at least not with a man so far beneath her station, a man who does not even have psychic powers. But even on the planet Celta, love is blind to such details. Separately, Ailim and Ruis must forgo their old lives. But together, they can take on the world…
