Designed for Heart Surgeons
A minimally invasive heart pump that delivers full support,
allowing the heart to rest; enabling full recovery.
Impella 5.5® with SmartAssist®
Minimally invasive heart pump providing full support with maximum unloading.
SmartAssist Advanced Metrics
Designed to optimize pump management and assist in weaning
Metrics During Intervention
At the initiation of the balloon inflation, the aortic placement signal begins to dampen and eventually diminishes, demonstrating unloading with Impella support.
The longer the balloon is inflated,
notice the uncoupling of AO and LV waveforms due to the decreased contractility of the heart.
When balloon is deflated, the return
of pulsatility is demonstrated.
Post-intervention, trend screen
may be used to assess weaning.
Standard screen prior to inflations
Weaning Interface for Native Heart Assessment
Observing trends in pump metrics during weaning
Improved Troubleshooting for Suction Management
The LV placement signal can provide additional information to assist in troubleshooting.
