Sensation 7Fr. IAB Catheter

The smallest IAB catheter, combined with innovative fiber-optic technology that automatically calibrates in vivo.

Smaller is better for patient and clinician

Sensation 7Fr. is the smallest IAB catheter available today, combined with innovative fiber-optic technology that automatically calibrates in vivo. Smaller is better for the patient, potentially reducing vascular complications.

The 7Fr. catheter

7Fr. size without sacrificing performance

  • The 7Fr. catheter is made possible by fiber-optic technology, allowing more patients with smaller, compromised vessels to benefit from IABP therapy
  • Potential for smaller arteriotomy
  • Potential for reduced limb ischemia

New IAB tray and insertion kit packaging: Innovative tray design for faster, easier setup and improved membrane protection.
