CS300 IABP from the side
three doctors working with the CS300 IABP


Intra-aortic balloon pump combining fibre-optic speed with automatic in vivo calibration.

Bringing clarity to mechanical circulatory support

Recent debate regarding the IABP has centered on the discrepant results obtained from randomised, controlled trials (RCTs), versus the benefits observed by clinicians in decades of clinical practice.

This series of educational programs reviews the physiological principles behind current circulatory support therapies.

The CS300 with IntelliSense combines fibre-optic speed with automatic in vivo calibration. The result is aimed for faster time to therapy, faster signal acquisition and faster adaptation to rate and rhythm changes.

Flexibility Matters

The CS300 can be used with:

  • Getinge fibre-optic IAB catheters
  • Conventional fluid-filled IAB catheter

Designed for Faster Time to Therapy

  • Aims for faster inflation and deflation speed
  • CS300 has true one-button start-up
  • Automatically calibrates the fibre-optic pressure sensor in the patient and recalibrates every 2 hours or sooner should patient or environmental conditions change
  • Automatically evaluates and selects the best lead and trigger source
  • Automatically sets optimal timing
  • Automatically adjusts to changes in patient conditions without clinician intervention

Fibre-optic Pressure Signal Transmission

An electrically isolated, low-level pressure output from the CS300 enables clinicians to send the fibre-optic arterial pressure waveform directly to a patient monitor by simply attaching an appropriate cable.

Unique Automatic In Vivo Calibration

Getinge has the only fibre-optic IABP and catheter system that automatically calibrates in the patient after insertion and automatically recalibrates in vivo every two hours or sooner should patient or environmental conditions change.

The Result

Designed for faster time to therapy, ongoing consistency and accuracy of the arterial blood pressure waveform, and improved ease of use.

Cath Lab

  • Designed for fast, one-button start-up and delivery of therapy
