1 HeartMate® GoGear™ System Components Training

2 Something Old / Something New
What Hasn’t Changed Pump function / surgical procedure System Controller operation / alarms System Monitor operation Switching to and from AC Power to Batteries / cable connections Battery exchanges Emergency Power Pack (EPP) Display Module What Has Changed Power Module in place of Power Base Unit’s (PBU’s) AC and monitor interface functions Universal Battery Charger in place of PBU’s battery charger function Two additional battery types (Li-ion/NiMH) with requisite clips Battery fuel gauges on new battery types System Controller aesthetics and compatibility

3 Overview – Power Module
The new GoGear System Components are designed to support a patient’s active lifestyle, providing mobility and flexibility in a safe, secure manner. Flexible Power Source – The Power Module is a portable solution that powers the HeartMate system safely and securely. One-third the weight of the Power Base Unit (PBU) Integrated backup battery provides emergency support for up to 30 minutes Simple, effective light indicators and audio alarms give immediate feedback on system operation Automobile port offers patients the added convenience of “plugging in” while in the car Powers the System Monitor and Display Module for system programming and monitoring purposes

4 Overview – Universal Battery Charger
Mobile Charging Capacity – The Universal Battery Charger is compact and lightweight with rapid charging technology to complement an on-the-go lifestyle. Weighs only eight pounds – highly portable Rapid charging minimizes the number of batteries required for excursions – reduces the burden of battery management Continuous diagnostic testing and automatic calibration delivers consistent battery performance Intuitive light indicators provide readily-accessible battery status

5 Overview – Batteries / Clips
Advanced Battery Technology – Light, long-lasting and smart – batteries have been developed specifically for HeartMate patients’ active lifestyles. Weighs only one pound (14V Li-Ion batteries) Provides a full work day of support on a single charge (up to 10 hours) Smart technology affords optimal charging, accurately gauges charge level and ensures battery lifespan (up to three years) Batteries were characterized over a five year period to ensure optimal operation with the HeartMate system.

6 Platform Comparison – Charger / Batteries
Power Base Unit Universal Battery Charger Charge time for batteries (hours) 8 4 Weight (lbs) 29 Battery calibration (smart feature) No Yes Display screen 12V SLA HM XVE / II 14V Li-Ion (HM II) 12V Ni-MH (HM XVE) Battery run time (hours per pair) 3-5 6-10 10 Battery chemistry Sealed Lead Acid Lithium-Ion Nickel Metal Hydride Battery life (cycles) 120 360 Battery weight (lbs) 1.44 1.1 Smart features? No Yes

7 Overview – Smart HM II Controller
A new, upgraded HM II system controller is required to operate GoGear System Components. The upgraded controller has embedded advanced “smart” technology. These smart controllers have the ability to communicate with the new HeartMate batteries providing accurate fuel gauging during discharge. Old HM II controllers are not compatible with 14 V Li-ion batteries and clips. Physical “lock-outs” prevent old HM II controllers from being used with 14V Li-ion battery clips. Smart controllers may be used with old batteries and clips. Smart controllers can be identified by new catalog #103696, white strain reliefs, white belt clip and software label: V White belt clip Software label White strain relief

8 Power Module – Overview
The Power Module (PM) performs four primary functions: Provides electrical power to the LVAS during tethered operation, by connecting to an AC power source Provides electrical power to the Display Module or System Monitor when either device is connected to the PM and the PM is plugged into AC power Connects the Display Module / System Monitor to the System Controller for monitoring purposes Echoes System Controller alarms Four components are required for tethered operation with the PM: 1) the PM itself, 2) a PM patient cable, 3) a PM power cord, and 4) a HeartMate II or XVE System Controller Power Module Patient Cable AC Cord HM II System Controller
