Acute Circulatory Support System with Full MagLev Flow Technology

CentriMag Acute Mechanical Circulatory Support System

About the CentriMag Acute Cirulatory Support System

Excellent hemocompatibility and unparalleled versatility for optimized patient care.

The CentriMag™ Acute Circulatory Support System is a blood pumping system used to support patients with acute heart and lung failure.

The CentriMag™ Device is the ONLY acute circulatory support system approved for 30-day VAD use* and cleared for ECMO** allowing escalation and de-escalation of therapy.5-7,*

CentriMag Pump: Designed for Optimal Hemocompatibility1,2

Driven by Full MagLev™ Flow Technology, the CentriMag™ Pump includes a free-floating magnetically levitated rotor for a contact-free environment. This innovative technology results in excellent hemodynamics, which can lead to minimized blood stagnation, friction and shear stress.3,4


Addressing the broadest spectrum of clinical challenges

The CentriMag blood pump functions as:

  • Part of an ECMO circuit for periods > 6 hours
  • Extracorporeal bypass circuit for periods up to 30 days*, to support the left, right, or both ventricles of the heart
ECMO Wheel

The CentriMag System includes both pediatric and adult pump options, producing flows up to 1.5 LPM for pediatric, and 10 LPM for adult.
