Hemolysis Risk Mitigation: What You'll Discover

This webinar delves into the practical application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in cardiovascular device development, focusing on mitigating hemolysis risk. Hemolysis, the breakdown of red blood cells, poses a significant patient safety concern. CFD provides a solution to this problem, allowing for accurate simulations of fluid flow and shear stress.

Learn the capabilities of Ansys CFD for streamlining product design, reducing development costs, and improving patient outcomes. We'll demonstrate how CFD supports efficient design alterations and optimization strategies to reduce hemolysis.

Diving deeper, this webinar will walk you through the comprehensive process of using Ansys CFD. This includes the selection of a suitable blood model, defining device geometry and boundary conditions, and conducting sensitive analyses. With these insights, you'll grasp how CFD can inform device enhancement strategies and affect product performance and patient health.

Join us for a 30-minute discussion on the emerging trends, potential hurdles, and promising opportunities in hemolysis analysis for cardiovascular devices. This will be immediately followed by a Q&A session where we welcome your thoughts and queries.
