Berlin Heart Inc. EXCOR is an extracorporeal pneumatically pulsatile ventricular assist device approved for use in pediatric age group since 2011 in the United States. It is a well-established life-saving therapy for the bridge to heart transplant or to provide circulatory support in a transplanted patient. The most commonly reported problem was “membrane defect” in a postmarketing major device reporting. In general, the filling and emptying of the pump can be easily visualized, but the interobserver variability exist. In this first novel report, we used the iPhone slow motion video to quantify and compare the differences in filling and emptying that positively impacted the management of the Berlin Heart. This is an initial exploratory concept that will need further studies to validate this bedside tool.
