Cardiogenic Shock is a complex clinical syndrome that remains a major cause of global mortality and morbidity.

Early use of intra-aortic balloon pump therapy is associated with survival benefits, regardless of etiology[1]

Acute heart failure is a potentially life-threatening condition

Early initiation of IABP may provide hemodynamic benefit as primary treatment for advanced decompensated heart failure[2]

Getinge IAB Catheters

Elevating IABP Therapy with fiber-optics and larger volume balloon catheters

Fiber-optic technology is a way to minimize the inaccuracies of a fluid-filled system. Combined with Getinge's larger volume balloon, patients receive greater systolic unloading and higher augmentation, with the potential of a greater increase in cardiac output compared to the older 40cc balloons.
