The AB5000 Ventricle is vacuum assisted technology with clear housing to allow clinicians a view into the device. Unlike other ventricular assist systems that can require multiple drivers for a single patient, patients on the AB5000 Ventricle require only a single driver – regardless of condition.
The AB Portable Driver is designed to allow patients to leave their hospital rooms and walk within the hospital and on hospital grounds. Multiple studies have shown that patient ambulation, or walking, greatly assists the recovery process. The ease of use and transport capability of the AB Portable Driver makes it an important option for both regional and local cardiac centers.
How It Works
Increased Mobility and Versatility – Without Compromise
The AB portable was designed to retain all functionality of the AB5000 Console for AB5000 Ventricle patients. The AB portable console provides biVAD support with adjustable vacuum controls and independent weaning controls. The AB portable is able to support patients from surgical implant through weaning to explantation.
Lightweight, Compact, Portable
The AB Portable Driver weights 18.9 lbs. Configuring the portable driver with its AB Power Pack and small mobile cart, allows for easier, independent patient ambulation, in-hospital transfer, or land/air transport.
Advanced compressor and proportional valve technologies produce an inherently quiet design which minimizes disruption to the patient and their environment.« back to top
