Heart Institute Hosts Impella Mobile Learning Lab
CHI St. Vincent Heart Institute will host a Mobile Learning Lab at CHI St. Vincent Infirmary on Nov. 13, giving health care providers an interactive, firsthand look at the world’s smallest heart pump and other innovative products used in cardiac care.
The mobile lab from device maker Abiomed trains clinicians on the Impella heart pump, a minimally-invasive device that aids patients during certain heart procedures. From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Nov. 13, cardiologists, nurses, cath lab employees and others across central Arkansas have a convenient opportunity to learn about the Impella platform and how these heart pumps can be used for patients in critical need of cardiac support.
The Nov. 13 event will be the Mobile Learning Lab's only stop in the state.
