  • Intra aortic balloon pump (IABP) is a mechanical device inserted in the aorta to help the heart pump blood
  • It consists of a long thin tube called as the catheter and a balloon at the end of it which inflates and deflates in sync with the rhythm of the heart
  • Intra Aortic Balloon Pump increases perfusion of myocardial oxygen and increases cardiac output while taking off work load from the heart
  • The IABP is connected to a computer which controls inflation and deflation, pressure and timing
  • Indications for administration of Intra Aortic Balloon Pump include:
    - Unstable angina pectoris
    - Post cardiothoracic Surgery
    - Percutaneous pulmonary angioplasty
    - High risk coronary artery bypass
    - Thrombolytic therapy
  • The use of Intra Aortic Balloon Pump is usually contraindicated for severe aortic valve insufficiency, aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm, sepsis etc.
  • The inclusion of fiber optic technology adds properties like speed, consistent AP signals and backup safety
  • Technical Specifications:
    - The Arrow FiberOptix Technology is the world's first fiber-optic IABP catheter that has been proven effective in thousands of patients
    - It is also the only one that works with the unique components of the AutoCAT 2 WAVE IABP to deliver ProActive counter pulsation
    - The arterial pressure signals will go with the speed of light to the pump giving a clean and fast AP signal that will benefit IABP support to the patient
    - Its consistent AP signal transmits better information faster
    - It remains unaffected by dampening, noise, and movement
    - The Cardiothane II Membrane offers a unique design of abrasion resistant material with hydrophilic coating
    - It has sheathed or sheathless insertion options; optional hemostasis device for post-insertion bleeding control
    - The device will not degrade over time
    - No maintenance of fiber-optic signal is required
    - They are available in the sizes of 7F and 8F and comes with a cable compatible with Datascope IABP Machines
