Extended Cable for Left Ventricular Assist Devices for Monitoring Isolated Patients during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Neal Waxali, James M. Kenward, Yasser Varona, Laurie Loza & Arvind Bhimaraj
We present a method to create an extended cable for patients who are supported by left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) while infected with SARS-CoV-2. The arrangement described facilitates the LVAD monitor console’s positioning outside of the patient’s room to minimize exposure of the mechanical circulatory support team to the novel coronavirus.
