Abstract

A bloop pump system for use in CPB and other heart surgeries includes a magnetic cable drive (28) for remotely driving the blood pump. The magnetic cable drive is configured with magnetic couplings on each end (22, 24) such that the same motor (12) can be used to drive the pump (10) whether the pump is positioned directly on the motor or connected to the motor by the cable drive. This system allows the blood pump to be positioned within the sterile surgical field which advantageously reduces the priming volume of the pump.

Description

BLOOD PUMP SYSTEM WITH MAGNETIC CABLE DRIVE CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS

This application claims the benefit under Title 35, United States Code, §120 of United States Patent Application No. 09/164,407 filed on September 30, 1998 entitled " Blood Pump System with Magnetic Cable Drive." BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

I . Field of the Invention

The invention relates to a blood pump, and more particularly, the invention relates to a centrifugal blood pump system with a magnetic cable drive assembly for connecting and driving the blood pump with a remote motor.

II . Brief Description of the Related Art

Blood pumps used in surgical procedures such as cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) are single-use devices. These blood pumps are generally powered by a reusable motor which drives the pump through a magnetic coupling. However, the reusable motors are not sterilizable . Thus, the motor and attached pump are positioned outside the sterile surgical field at a location away from the patient. The disposable pump which is driven by the motor is connected to the patient by long lengths of tubing which transport the patient's blood to and from the blood pump. The long lengths of tubing increase the priming volume of the pump which is the amount of the patient's blood and/or saline which must be drawn into the tubing and the pump to prime the pump before blood begins to be returned to the patient .

Long lengths of tubing connecting the pump to the patient also increase the amount of foreign material which comes into contact with the patient's blood, increasing trauma to the patient. A typical CPB circuit includes several feet of flexible tubing that the patient's blood flows through. In order to prevent blood clots, the patient's blood is generally treated with Heparin. The use of Heparin is preferably minimized because Heparin prevents the blood from clotting.

An example of a prior art blood pump assembly including a disposable blood pump 10 and a reusable motor 12 is illustrated in FIGS. 1 and 2. The blood pump 10 has an axial blood inlet 14 and a tangential blood outlet 16.

An impeller within the fully enclosed and sterile blood pump 10 moves the blood from the inlet 14 to the outlet 16.

The pump 10 snaps onto the motor 12 and a magnetic coupling between the pump 10 and the motor 12 is used to transmit the rotation of a motor drive shaft to the pump impeller. After use, the pump 10 is removed from the motor 12 and replaced with a new sterile blood pump 10 for the next patient. Due to the non-sterile condition of the motor 12, the motor 12 and pump 10 must be positioned outside of the sterile surgical field.

In either stopped heart or beating heart surgery, it is desirable to minimize the priming volume of the blood pump by placing the pump as close as possible to the surgical site and even within the chest cavity. By placing the pump close to or within the surgical field, the amount of saline required to prime the bypass circuit is reduced which reduces the likelihood that a transfusion will be required. Previous attempts to move the blood pump closer to the patient have involved the use of a cable drive system for the blood pump which allows the sterile pump to be located within the sterile surgical field while being driven from a remotely located motor. However, the use of a remotely located motor and cable drive system requires the use of one motor for directly driving the blood pump when the pump is positioned outside of the surgical field and requires a second motor with a cable drive system for driving the pump remotely when the pump is positioned inside the surgical field. Accordingly, it would be desirable to provide a blood pump system which allows the same motor to drive the blood pump whether the blood pump is positioned within the surgical field close to the surgical site to minimize the priming volume of the pump or positioned outside of the surgical field in the conventional manner. SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

One aspect of the present invention involves providing a blood pump system. The blood pump system comprises a blood pump having an impeller for moving blood from an inlet to an outlet, and a magnetic coupler connected to the impeller.

The blood pump system according to the present invention allows a blood pump 10 to be connected directly to a motor 12 in the conventional manner or positioned remote from the motor 12 and driven by a magnetic cable drive 20. The magnetic cable drive 20 is configured such that the same motor 12 can be used to drive the pump 10 whether the pump 10 is positioned directly on the motor 12 or connected to the motor 12 by the magnetic cable drive 20. When the system is used with the blood pump 10 positioned in the sterile surgical field, the magnetic cable drive 20 is connected to both the blood pump 10 and the motor 12 by easy connect magnetic couplings.

As shown in FIG. 3, the magnetic cable drive 20 of the present invention connects the blood pump 10 to the motor 12 and transmits rotation of a motor drive shaft (not shown) to an impeller (not shown) within the blood pump 10.

The magnetic cable drive 20 includes a female magnetic coupling 22 at one end and a male magnetic coupling 24 at an opposite end. Attached to the female and male magnetic couplings 22, 24 is a flexible drive shaft 26 which transmits rotation from one of the magnetic couplings to the other. The flexible drive shaft 26 is surrounded by a flexible casing 28.

As illustrated most clearly in the exploded view of FIG. 4, the blood pump 10 includes an annular flange 30 which is used to secure the pump 10 to the female magnetic coupling 22 or directly to the motor 12. The annular flange 30 preferably fits into a circular recess 32 in the female magnetic coupling 22 and is secured in place by sliding the annular flange 30 beneath an L-shape tab 34 on one side of the magnetic coupling 22 and securing the blood pump 10 in place with a pivotable lever arm 36 which receives the annular flange 30. The male magnetic coupling 24 has an annular flange 40 which corresponds substantially in shape and size with the annular flange 30 of the pump 10. The annular flange 40 of the male magnetic coupling 24 is configured to be received in a circular recess 42 in the motor 12 and secured in place by the fixed L- shaped tab 44 and pivotable lever arm 46. As illustrated in FIG. 4, the magnetic couplings 22,

24 can be removable from the flexible drive shaft 26 and casing 28. The casing 28 may be secured to the magnetic couplings 22, 24 by a threaded member 50 on each of the couplings which is received in a threaded connector 52 of the casing 28. The removable flexible drive shaft 26 and casing 28 allow the magnetic cable drive 20 to be converted to different lengths for use in different applications. Alternatively, the magnetic couplings 22, 24 may be permanently attached to the flexible drive shaft 26 and casing 28.

The magnetic couplings 22, 24, the blood pump 10, and the motor 12 are shown in further detail in the side cross sectional views of FIGS. 5 and 6. As shown in FIG. 5, the blood pump 10 includes an impeller 56 having a plurality of blades 58. The impeller 56 is secured to a rotatable drive shaft 60 by a nut 54. The impeller 56 is located within a hermetically sealed blood pump chamber 62. Blood leakage around the drive shaft 60 is prevented by a sealing member 64 positioned on a rear wall 74 of the blood chamber 62. The drive shaft 60 is rotatably mounted in a base 66 of the blood pump 10 by a bearing 68. A disk shaped member 70 is secured to the drive shaft 60 and is rotatable with the drive shaft 60. On the disk 70 are a plurality of magnets 72. The female magnetic coupling 22 as illustrated in

FIG. 5 includes a housing 76 containing a rotatable disk 78 having magnets 80 positioned on the disk 78. The disk 78 is fixed to a rotatable shaft 82 which is secured in the housing 76 by a bearing 84. The flexible drive shaft 26 is inserted into the shaft 82 of the female magnetic coupling 22. The flexible drive shaft 26 and the shaft 82 of the magnetic coupling 22 are secured together in a non- rotatable connection which may be formed in a manner known in the art such as by inserting a square end of the flexible drive shaft 26 into a square socket in the magnetic coupling shaft 82. As illustrated in FIG. 5, the magnetic coupling housing 76 and the rotatable coupling disk 78 each have a central recess for receiving a protruding portion of the pump 10. FIG. 6 illustrates the connection of the male magnetic coupling member 24 to the motor 12. The male magnetic coupling member 24 includes a housing 88, a rotatable disk 90, and a rotatable shaft 92 secured to the disk 90. A plurality of magnets 94 are positioned within the rotatable disk 90. The rotatable shaft 92 is mounted in the housing 88 for rotation by the bearings 96. The flexible drive shaft 26 is connected to the rotatable shaft 92 of the male magnetic coupling 24 in the same manner as described above with respect to the female magnetic coupling 22. The male magnetic coupling 24 is removably received in the circular recess 42 in the motor 12 and secured in place by the fixed L-shaped tab 44 and pivotable lever arm 46. The motor 12 includes a drive shaft 100 connected to a rotatable disk 102 having a plurality of magnets 104. The magnets 104 of the motor 12 are opposed to the magnets 94 of the male magnetic coupling 24 such that rotation of the motor drive shaft 100 causes rotation of the rotatable shaft 92 of the male magnetic coupling 24. In accordance with the present invention, the blood pump 10 can be removably attached either directly to the drive motor 12 or can be driven remotely by the magnetic cable drive 20 which is configured to connect the blood pump 10 to the motor 12. Preferably, the entire magnetic cable drive 20 is sterilizable, such as in an autoclave, ETO, or the like, or is provided in a sterile condition and is disposable. Magnetic cable drive 20 may be provided in different lengths such as two feet, four feet, and six feet lengths to allow the motor 12 to be place outside of the sterile surgical field while the sterilizable blood pump 10 is positioned close to the surgical site within the sterile surgical field.

Although the blood pump 10 according to the present invention has been described as having an axial inlet 14 and a tangential outlet 16, other configurations of the pump are also possible. For example, the inlet and outlet may be coaxial. Further, the releasable connection between the blood pump 10 and the magnetic cable drive 20 or the motor 12 may be replaced by any known releasable coupling. The coupling may also allow the pump 10 and/or motor 12 to rotate with respect to the magnetic cable drive 20.

According to one embodiment of the invention, the magnetic cable drive 20 may be connected to the motor 12 and/or the pump 10 at an angle and the connection may swivel. Thus, the pump 10 and motor 12 do not have to be in perfect alignment.

While the invention has been described in detail with reference to the preferred embodiments thereof, it will be apparent to one skilled in the art that various changes and modifications can be made and equivalents employed, without departing from the present invention.
