Placement of intra-aortic baloon pump in patients with poor heart function
The Intensive Care and Treatment Unit is equipped with the most sophisticated equipment for acceptance, treatment and care of patients in life-threatening conditions, as well as patients immediately after surgical interventions until their hemodynamic stabilization.
The intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) is a mechanical device that improves the oxygenation and the blood supply of the heart muscle simultaneously increasing the cardiac output. It consists of a cylindrical polyethylene balloon that percutaneously (subcutaneously) is implanted in the aorta, approximately 2 cm next to the subclavian artery.
