2.2.1 The patient with an IABP will be cared for in RUH in the ICU or CCU by certified in RNSP Care of the Patient with an IABP. Intra-aortic balloon pumping (IABP) can be employed to achieve hemodynamic stabilization in the patient before definitive therapy. Guidelines for Management of the Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump Purpose: To outline the nursing management of patients requiring an Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump (IABP). Nursing2004: December 2004 - Volume 34 - Issue 12 - p 32cc1-32cc2. The indications, complications, and relative effectiveness of the IABP have been studied extensively for nearly 4 decades. An intra-aortic balloon pump, or IABP, is a long, skinny balloon that controls the flow of blood through your largest blood vessel, the aorta. Count on Getinge’s Cardiosave platform as your first line of mechanical circulatory support. If balloon rupture occurs the console will alarm and withdraw helium from the balloon before shutting down. It can be indicated by a sudden loss of inflation pressure or the presence of blood in the balloon line and is associated with a risk of intra-balloon thrombus and helium embolisation. The balloon pump was placed on one-to-one augmentation. Intra-Aortic Balloon Counterpulsation for patients in need of hemodynamic support. 2.2.1.1 The RNs certified in this RNSP will have first completed the following learning module prior to caring for patients with IAB. The IntraClude intra-aortic occlusion device occludes and vents the ascending aorta when the balloon is inflated. A 7-French 50 mL intra-aortic balloon pump was placed to the level of the carina. National Center for Health Statistics data show that at least 37,000 intra-aortic balloons were placed in the United States in 2004, 1 whereas some estimates range to more Buy; Abstract. The patient remained stable during the procedure and was transferred back to the intensive care unit in stable condition. The device’s central lumen allows delivery of cardioplegia to arrest the heart. The intra-aortic balloon inflates during diastole synchronously with aortic valve closure and the appearance of dicrotic notch resulting in the displacement of blood from the thoracic aorta into the peripheral circulation that is followed by rapid deflation before the onset of … One of your patients is a 58 year-old man who had a quadruple coronary artery bypass earlier in the day. 2.2 To ensure safe care of the patient undergoing intra-Aortic Balloon Pump Therapy .

Count on Cardiosave. Little, Cindy RN, BC, MBA, MSN. aka Cardiovascular Curveball 005. The IntraClude intra-aortic occlusion device is indicated for use in patients undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass.
