Maquet Launches Cardiosave IABP


November 11, 2011

The Cardiosave intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) from Maquet Cardiovascular incorporates a large state-of-the-art touchscreen display and is smaller, lighter and quieter than any pump the company has ever offered. The pump is being offered in two configurations: Cardiosave Hybrid for routine in-hospital use and Cardiosave Rescue for use in ambulances and aircraft.

Intra-aortic balloon counterpulsation is an adjunctive therapy often used in patients with left ventricular failure and other cardiac conditions. When the balloon is inserted into the patient's aorta, it counterpulsates with the heart and augments coronary blood flow to increase myocardial oxygen supply and decrease myocardial oxygen demand.

The Cardiosave IABP was introduced at TCT 2011.
