Abstract.

During heart insufficiency therapy by ventricular assist device it is important to maintain proper supporting conditions independently on personal anatomical differences, various courses of disease and temporary variations of patient's circulatory system state. It causes necessity of assist device operation automation and estimation of its particular parameters: output flow, pressures in characteristic points and extremely membrane position. The paper describes selected problems related to automation of mechanical heart supporting process and measurement of selected physical supporting parameters.
