Instruction Manual from ABIOMED Inc

The ABIOMED AB5000 Circulatory Support System (AB5000 System) is an automated biventricular support device intended to provide complete short-term support of the left and/or right sides of the heart. The AB5000 System uses a microprocessor-based drive Console to supply pneumatic power to a disposable blood pump. Beat rates and systolic/diastolic intervals are determined automatically by sensing driveline airflow at the Console. The disposable AB5000 Ventricle (Figure 1.2) is a pneumatically driven one-chambered device that supports one side of the heart. The AB5000 Ventricle is placed external to the patient. Blood inflow from the left atrium or ventricle is returned to the thoracic aorta. Inflow from the right atrium returns to the pulmonary artery. Connection of the AB5000 Ventricle to the patient uses transthoracic cannulation techniques.
