What are Impella® Heart Pumps?


In the video above, Dr. Bogaev Chapman explains what Impella heart pumps are and what they are used for.

Impella, the world’s smallest heart pump, is a support system of percutaneous catheter-based technology offering hemodynamic support to the heart. Impella has been used to treat patients in the United States since 2008.

Impella heart pumps allow the heart to rest and recover by temporarily assisting the pumping function of the heart to efficiently deliver blood and oxygen to the entire body.

More Than 300,000 Patients Have Been Supported with Impella® Heart Pumps
