Presentation Transcript

  • 1) Bridge to myocardial recovery: less than 2 week circulatory support needed until pt recovers from acute event such as MI, viral myocarditis or failure to wean from CPB

  • 2) Bridge to transplant: unlikely to recover from acute MI, end-stage CHF from any source, myocarditis yet are candidates for orthotopic heart transplant

  • 3) Destination therapy: same as number 2, but not candidates for OHT and require permanent circulatory support








  • Which of the following are effects of the IABP? ischemia with the IABP?

    • A) reduction of preload

    • B) reduction of afterload

    • C) decreased coronary perfusion pressure

    • D) worsening of AI

    • E) Distorting your radial A-line tracing

    • F) All of the above


  • Which of the following are effects of the IABP? ischemia with the IABP?

    • A) reduction of preload: no significant effect

    • B) reduction of afterload

    • C) Increased coronary perfusion pressure

    • D) worsening of AI

    • E) Distorting your radial A-line tracing

    • F) All of the above
