A simulation environment was developed as a tool for the design of a fuzzy controlled perfusion. This consists of a mathematical model of the cardiovascular system connected to a heart-lung machine. An existing cardiovascular model extracted from the PHYSIOME database was used and extended with the model of a HLM. A visual interface was created to simulate real-time patient data where specific scenarios can be evaluated. Preliminary results are shown where the model was adjusted with experimental data and a fuzzy controller was activated to test its performance.
