The PiCSO Impulse Console automatically operates the PiCSO Impulse Catheter. The balloon is intermittently inflated and deflated using helium, based on coronary sinus pressure and synchronized with the ECG. The monitor displays the inflation/ deflation state of the balloon, as well as trend graphs and time counters; Live graphs display curves and numeric values of ECG, CSP, AP and auxiliary input. It is easy to use and provides direct feedback on the patient’s individual therapy using the ‘PiCSO Quantity’, which is defined as the sum of coronary sinus pressure modulation for all PiCSO cycles applied. All data are automatically stored and can be retrieved for later analysis for each patient. The unit is transportable and runs on battery supply if needed during patient transportation.
