Cardiologists who have experience with COVID-19 patients in New York City say a low threshold should be used to assess patients for cardiogenic shock in the setting of acute systolic heart failure related to COVID-19. If inotropic support fails in these patients, researchers suggest use of an IABP (intra-aortic balloon pump) as the first line mechanical circulatory support device, because it requires the least maintenance from medical support staff. #coronavirus #COVID19 #SARScov2

An example of Philips’ TrueVue technology, which offers photo-realistic rendering and the ability to change the location of the lighting source on 3-D ultrasound images. In this example of two Amplazer transcatheter septal occluder devices in the heart, the operator demonstrating the product was able to push the lighting source behind the devices into the other chamber of the heart. This illuminated a hole that was still present that the occluders did not seal. Photo by Dave Fornell
