Real Heart´s solution to a total artificial heart (TAH)

Scandinavian Real Heart’s total artificial heart (TAH) is created to mimic the natural human heart´s principal pumping motion, to produce physiological pressures and a natural pulse. It is an almost exact copy of both of the fundamental normal pumping action, providing normal pressure conditions, and a normal pulse. Refilling of the atrium is also done in a normal way.

The heart consisting of two atriums and two chambers. The right side is a low pressure system and left a high pressure system. The non-oxygenated blood comes from the body into the right atrium, then goes through the right chamber into the pulmonary circulation, is oxygenated and will return to the left atrium and is then pumped through the left chamber into the body again.
