The impellor of a blood pump is supported by permanent magnets on the impellor and pump housing and stabilized by an electromagnet on the housing. A control circuit supplies current to the electromagnet to maintain the axial position of the impellor at a control position in which the impellor is in mechanical equilibrium under permanent magnet forces and static axial forces on the impellor to minimize energy consumption in the support of the impellor. The impellor is rotated magnetically and stator coils in the housing are supplied with electric currents...
An artificial heart for implantation in the body of a human subject comprising: a first pump comprising a housing having an inlet passage fluidly connectable to the subject\s left atrium and an outlet passage fluidly connectable to the subject\s aorta; and a second pump comprising a housing having an inlet passage connectable to at least one of the subject\s superior vena cava and inferior vena cava and an outlet passage fluidly connectable to the subject\s pulmonary artery; wherein the housing of each of said pumps has an impellor chamber disposed betwe...
