This three-hour web seminar is designed for healthcare professionals with a strong understanding of hemodynamics who will be directly responsible for the care of patients requiring IABP therapy. The program is comprised of three modular components consisting of theoretical, clinical, and technical considerations for a patient requiring IABP therapy. Troubleshooting the alarms and advisories will also be discussed.
The program begins with a brief review of the hemodynamics of counterpulsation, followed by a discussion on the proper placement of the percutaneous intra-aortic balloon catheter. An overview of the technical aspects of the intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) will also be presented.
This one-hour live program is recommended for caregivers who have a working knowledge of the technical and theoretical aspects of intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) therapy. It will provide the clinician with preventative and corrective solutions to the more common occurrences and alarms that can be encountered in the delivery of IABP therapy.
The next stage in cardiogenic shock: Timing is everything
This live one-hour accredited web-seminar will review the general background on cardiogenic shock treatment plan considerations, the new Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) classification of cardiogenic shock, and current data on the use of mechanical circulatory support (MCS.)
The program will include an introduction to the theory of intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) therapy, followed by a discussion of the technical aspects of the Getinge IABP and the intra-aortic balloon catheter.
