Blood exposed biomedical devices (e. g. blood pumps, mechanical heart valve prostheses, oxygenators) provoke blood trauma. Mechanical, flow induced damage of blood cells and blood contact with artificial surfaces (biocompatibility and bio material) are considered to be the dominant causes of blood trauma. Erythrocytes are damaged (haemolysis) and the coagulation is activated (thrombus fotmations).
