Benefits of Impella Heart Pumps

Hemodynamic Stabilization

Impella heart pumps provide the unique benefit of unloading the heart while providing coronary perfusion and end organ perfusion.

Safe and Effective

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Impella its highest level of approval as safe and effective.

Improved Quality of Life

In a randomized controlled trial, 8-in-10 patients treated with Impella heart pumps experienced reduction in heart failure symptoms or improved ejection fraction.1

SmartAssist Technology is a state-of-the-art integration with the Impella heart pump, designed to improve patient outcomes by using real-time intelligence


Impella and ECMO combination therapy in cardiogenic shock provides the added Impella benefits of left ventricular unloading for myocardial recovery, end organ perfusion, ambulation and weaning, with the ECMO benefits of oxygenation.
