Patient Management in Cardiac Surgery With the Impella® Heart Pump
Patient Management Starts in the Operating Room
On this page, you will find all relevant information on patient management for Impella heart pumps in cardiac surgery. Our surgical case checklist provides guidance for all steps of patient management with the Impella 5.5® with SmartAssist® heart pump. It covers all aspects required in the operating theatre and in the intensive care unit following surgery.
You will also learn more about mobilisation with the Impella heart pump as well as escalation and de-escalation scenarios for more flexible “bridge to” scenarios.
