An Adaptive Algorithm for Machine Perfusion of Isolated Donor Liver

A hardware and software system for donor liver perfusion is described. Both standard and adaptive algorithms for perfusion control in the process of liver function restoration are described. The adaptive algorithm is based on a mathematical model of machine perfusion. It provides complete perfusion and allows blood cell injuries that often accompany the standard perfusion procedure to be avoided.
