Intra-Aortic Balloon Pumping (IABP)

Our Aim

The overarching aim of ABM is to provide services and advice that are an integral part of a patient's blood management plan. We aim to achieve this goal through interaction with the individual hospital, multidisciplinary team and the effective implementation of research based practice.

The intra aortic balloon pump is a mechanical device that is used to decrease myocardial oxygen demand while at the same time increasing cardiac output. This process also improves the blood supply through the coronary arteries therefore improving oxygen delivery to the myocardium. This therapy, which our on-staff perfusionists operate, can be used pre, intra and post-operatively.
