CARDIOSAVE IABP Rescue is a uniquely small, light intra-aortic pump which redefines counterpulsation therapy. Designed by MAQUET, this revolutionary pump meets the rigorous requirements of transportation of patients in an ambulance or helicopter. Due to its reduced size and weight, it enables easy lifting and placement while the lithium ion batteries allow for a potentially limited run-time. The 'hot swap' ability of the batteries means that patients won't suffer from any interruption in support from the pump while being transferred from one facility to another, regardless of the length of the transportation. This versatile device has a large touchscreen display.
