INTEGRIS Heart Hospital is the first hospital in Oklahoma to participate in the Abiomed Mobile Learning Lab program.
The Abiomed Mobile Learning Lab is a highly interactive, facilitated learning experience that is brought directly to the hospital, training the hospital staff on the Impella® heart pump, one of the newest minimally invasive heart technologies.
Impella 2.5, the world’s smallest heart pump manufactured by Abiomed, is a percutaneous (through the skin) heart pump that offers hemodynamic support for patients who  have been turned down for bypass surgery or are at high risk for percutaneous coronary intervention; patients in cardiogenic shock; and to stabilize patients before surgery or transplant.
The Mobile Learning Lab offers cardiologists, nurses and cath lab staff at INTEGRIS Heart Hospital a convenient opportunity to learn about the Impella platform. The Mobile Learning Lab contains various Impella simulators, animations and key information, which are all presented by a team of Abiomed trainers.
“Our community of patients and partners deserve the best therapies available. Our participation with the mobile learning lab will ensure that our staff is highly trained to effectively utilize the most innovative health care technology solutions available for our patients,” said George Chrysant, M.D., an interventional cardiologist with INTEGRIS Heart Hospital.
Abiomed’s portfolio of heart support and recovery products and services offer health care professionals an array of choices across a broad clinical spectrum. The Impella heart pump family has supported more than 25,000 patients in the United States.
