This paper presents the results of research focused on the adaptation of a hybrid simulator of the human circulatory system to the physical reproduction of the haemodynamic conditions prevailing in the apex of the heart. This report describes the principle of operation of the hybrid simulator and presents two methods of its modification. The work includes analysis of the algorithm verification and describes problems that appeared during research. A comparison of the results obtained for both modification methods is shown, as well as preliminary simulation results for a constant-flow ventricle assist device joined to the hybrid simulator operating in the apex of the heart-aorta configuration.
