An auxiliary control for a blood pump used in hemodialysis which acts upon an existing blood pump controller to continuously vary the pump rate in direct correspondence with changes in flow of a patient's blood reflected as variations in negative pressure in a blood line. The auxiliary control regulates the pump rate by producing an electrical pulse train in which the duration of the pulses corresponds to changes in negative pressure corresponding to changes in the blood flow rate. The control presents means for achieving a rapid response to changes in the flow of the patient's blood.
