Maquet Cardiosave and Maquet CS300 Comparison
What is an IABP?
IABP is short for Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump. It’s a therapeutic medical device that helps your heart pump more blood with less energy from your own body. One might need IABP therapy if their heart is unable to pump enough blood throughout their body. A long balloon called an IAB or intra-aortic balloon is attached to one end of a catheter. The catheter is attached to a computer console that controls the inflating and deflating of the balloon once inserted into the aorta. Typically, the IAB is inserted through a small cut on the inside of your upper leg and guided to your aorta. The balloon will inflate when the heart relaxes; pushing blood flow back toward the coronary arteries, and deflates when the heart contracts.
What is the difference between the Maquet Cardiosave and the Maquet CS300?
Compared to the Maquet CS300, the Maquet Cardiosave represents a giant leap forward in functionality and versatility, while still continuing to deliver the performance of Datascope’s previous model, the CS300. When comparing the difference between the earlier CS300 model and the Cardiosave, it’s easy to distinguish a few visual changes. The Cardiosave has an upgraded and well organized user-interface, lighter design, and two displays with touchscreen capabilities. But, are there any technical differences between the two IABPs? Technologically speaking, the Maquet Cardiosave and the Maquet CS300 are very similar. The biggest difference would be the mobility. The Cardiosave has the option to quickly transition to transport mode. Transport mode allows exceptional ease-of-use for on the go therapy. If there is no need for extreme mobility in your facility, just your standard Maquet CS300 on a rolling stand would be the best fit, but it is best to speak with qualified sales representatives when requesting a quote.
