This respected device is easy to operate. With the Impella CP™ practitioners tap into a new percutaneous, catheter-based Impella® device. It operates on the same platform as the Impella 2.5 and has an increased flow which is equally delivered on the same platform. There is no procedure in place for operating the device. Simply insert with the standard catheterization through the femoral artery. It can then be taken through the ascending aorta where it will cross the valve and enter the left ventricle.
