Intra-Aortic Balloon Pumps


AutoCAT2WAVE® IABP

ProActive CounterPulsation® Technology featuring the unique WAVE® Algorithm

The AutoCAT2WAVE® IABP relies on a unique combination of FiberOptix® Sensor Technology, aortic flow timing, proprietary WAVE® Software and the AutoPilot® Mode of operation to achieve its high level of performance — even in patients with severe arrhythmias.

  • Speed-of-light AP signal transmission overcomes delays of fluid-filled systems1,2
  • Reliably anticipates and determines AV closure — before it occurs3,4,5
  • 98% percent timing accuracy within 12 milliseconds (ms) — even during severe arrhythmias4
  • WAVE® Algorithm sets inflation point within the beat, even during arrhythmias3,4,5
  • Increases time for coronary perfusion and decreases afterload6
  • AutoPilot® Mode delivers simple, touch-of-a-button monitoring of, and response to, physiologic conditions for consistent triggering and timing

AutoCAT® 2 IABP

Designed to deliver reliability and ease of use

AutoCAT® 2 IABP relies on the AutoPilot® Mode of operation to achieve its high level of performance.

  • Automatically selects ECG/AP signal, sources, trigger mode, and timing method as well as timing settings
  • Automatically changes settings to optimize assist
  • Proprietary software sets timing to correspond to individual patient needs
  • Proprietary deflation timing management
  • AutoPilot® Mode delivers simple, touch-of-a-button monitoring of, and response to, physiologic conditions for consistent triggering and timing

AERO® AutoCAT2WAVE® IABP

Designed for air transport

  • Total fly weight is 91.5 lbs for AERO® AutoCAT2WAVE® IABP
  • Removable, low-profile control and display unit for easy viewing and pump operation
  • Designed with all the features of the AutoCAT2WAVE® IABP, but with a smaller footprint for transport
  • Conveniently located handles for moving and lifting

AERO® AutoCAT® 2 IABP

Simply unplug and go

  • No reconfiguration needed for transport
  • AutoPilot® Mode delivers simple, touch-of-a-button monitoring of, and response to, physiologic conditions for consistent triggering and timing
  • Automatically selects best signal, optimal trigger mode and timing settings
