Supporting patients, supporting client’s needs whilst promoting clinical expertise
This comprehensive one day program is designed for healthcare professionals directly involved with the care of the patient requiring Intra-aortic Balloon Pump (IABP) therapy.
A combination of theory and interactive group sessions will enable the participant to apply theoretical knowledge to clinical practice in a safe environment.
On completion, the participants will have a greater understanding of the physiological effects achieved by IABP therapy, be able to identify relevant indications and contraindications for using counterpulsation and apply the concepts of IAB insertion, device set-up, operation, and troubleshooting.
