The experience told us the time-limit is without restriction, when it´s about prehospital equipment and the question was about resque of human-beings. Therefore it was a job to take care off.
The prototype of hand-held mini-mobile heartlung machine was the result of many years of experience with small machines which would be able to keep patients alive until further treatment at hospital was possible.
The driving-force in this project, have been chief-physician Benedict Kjaergaard, Aalborg- and Aarhus UH, Aalborg and Aarhus in Denmark.

Received 4 pc. donations from Medtronic, based in USA. Testing the mini-mobile heartlung machine vs. the stationary machine. Aarhus UH is in the future going to use the mini-mobile machine even more.

Translation: Chief physician Benedict Kjaergaard and his staff often save life where other doctors with staff have give up.
Statement by chief-physician Benedict Kjaergaard:
Prototype of Catoli One is always packed for outgoing purpose “pronounce kjaergaard”. We never know what we are called fore. He later received the decoration by the royal queen “Knight of Dannebrog”
Statement by Doctor Martin Noergaard, Aalborg Universityhospital:
Regarding the prototypes: “Prototypen af Mini-mobil hjertelunge maskine redder ikke kun livet for hypothermia patienter, men har også vist sig at være utrolig effektiv ved andre hjertesvigt patienter.”
Translation: The mini-mobile heart/lung machine does not only save life of hypothermia patients, but also have a remarkable efficiency to all other reasons of heart failure.
Statement by Doctor Søren Thomsen, Aalborg Universityhospital:
“Prototypen er en god livsredder at have, nogle patienter har undgået døden i H1N1 epidemien, bedre kendt som svine-influenza”.
Translation: The prototype is a good lifeguard to have. With this machine some patients avoid dead under H1N1 epidemic, better know as swine-flu.
Chief physician Benedict Kjaergaard, is now clinical-lecturer at Aalborg University, Formerly, with very-much frontpage-materiel in the news-papers. Some of the headlines (translated).
Benedict Kjaergaard and his staff revived patients given up by others”
“Long death-fight in Limfjorden, the result of gratitude to the miracle-doctor”.
“Danish soldier in Afghanistan survived deadly projectiles”
“Accident in Sorø: Andreas was placed on the wharf given up by other doctors. He was died. Benedict Kjaergaard connected Andreas to a prototype, survived and finished his examination”.
“The Prototype has been unavoidable in many situation, “said chief physician Kjaergaard”
“Benedict Kjaergaard dare using methods and other perceive, as crazy or untraditional” “Maybe therefore, we to day has the perfect prototype” said of other surgeries.
Often is Benedict Kjaergaard named as a hero. According to himself he is not just common hospital-doctor.
Aalborg University UH has in many positive ways highlighted the mini-mobile heartlung machine.
