Rotary blood pumps (RBPs) running at a constant speed are routinely used for the mechanical support of the heart in various clinical applications, from short-term use in heart-lung machines to long-term support of a failing heart. Their operating range is delineated by suction and regurgitation events, leaving limited control on the cardiac workload. This study investigates whether different ratios of systolic/diastolic support are advantageous over a constant-speed operation.
