In this paper, an Autoregulation Unit (ARU) for left ventricular sensorized assist devices (LVAD) has been used with a cardiovascular hybrid simulator mimicking physiological and pathological patient conditions. The functionalities of the ARU have been demonstrating for the successful receiving and visualization of system parameters, sending of commands for LVAD speed changes, and enabling of the autonomous flow control algorithm. Experiments of speed changes and autoregulation are reported, showing the feasibility of the approach for both local and remote control of a LVAD.
