About Autologs 1.3

Autologs™ 1.3 Device Management Service

The Autologs 1.3 website and report were developed for convenient and faster access to important pump data.

Autologs 1.3 delivers:

  • Access to important patient data. Users have the option to download logfile reports directly from the website.
  • Chronology of events. Users can choose to view a summarized or detailed list of alarm and event notifications when running reports. New event indicators have also been added to the custom zoom trend plot to visually show the type of alarm event that was experienced.
  • Convenience. If a clinician chooses to email logfile data, the Autologs 1.3 website will automatically complete the entry of frequently used email address.

“The impact of logfiles for our patients has been substantial. We review the logfiles in conjunction with other pieces of data to look not just for a trend in a patient, but also for something more urgent. We've been able to pick up even early events before they actually happen, and those patients were able to get admitted and taken care of.”

–Erika D. Feller, M.D., Cardiologist University of Maryland, Baltimore, MD



The HVAD Waveform is a visualization of blood flow through the HVAD, which is generated by 3 factors:

  1. Pressure at the inflow of the pump
  2. Pressure at the outflow of the pump
  3. Set speed
Example of HVAD Waveform report


Every 15 minutes, the controller records the flow from the waveform and the pump's speed and power into its logfiles. It also records all medium- and high-priority alarms at the time they occur. The controller can store up to 30 days of pump parameter data before overwriting the data in a first in/first out fashion.

When sent to the Autologs service, the data contained in the logfiles is charted and organized in a way to simplify pump performance interpretation. The data shown in the reports is summarized to help the user identify major and long-term trends.
