The heart lung machine consists of five main parts. They are oxygenator, pump, temperature controller and filter and tubes. The oxygenator functions as the lung and the pump is operated as the function of the heart. The tubes is connected to machine
The machine work as follows: firstly, poor blood from the plastic tubes goes to oxygenator where supplies oxygen for blood. Next, blood transfers directly to the pump. The pump turning with sensible velocity pushes the oxygenated blood to adjuster. Temperature in blood is changed to adapt to the body. After that, blood is filtered for bubbles and other harmful substances. Finally, blood is returned to patient's arterial system. Following the preparation for heart, the heart is restarted and the heart lung machine is removed gradually.
