Transferring to the Standard Configuration
This quick skills video demonstrates the procedure for transferring from the initial set-up configuration of the Impella 2.5® or Impella CP® to the standard configuration using the Automated Impella Controller™ (AIC). Abiomed recommends transferring to the standard configuration as soon as practical. A white advisory alarm appears after two hours instructing operators to transfer from the initial set-up configuration to the standard configuration. Note that the system will switch to P-level mode when this is done.
This video covers:
- How to select the Transfer to Standard Configuration procedure on the AIC
- What supplies are needed to complete the procedure (normal saline bag, pressure bag, straight IV tubing)
- How to set up and connect the saline bag
- How to remove the Y-connector and reconnect the yellow luer to the Impella® catheter
