Recommendations  Proper functioning of the purge system is essential for optimal operation of the Impella 5...  Abiomed suggests the following best practices be scrupulously followed during the initial priming of the Impella 5... and during subsequent purge system changes... 1... deal priming of the Impella 5... should take place concurrently during preparations for implant, while the vascular exposure or graft anastomosis are being performed... onger duration purge priming, when convenient, ensures optimal delivery of the purge solution to the motor assembly prior to implantation... 2... uring initial priming, hold the motor and the cannula in a vertical position and ensure purge fluid droplets are observed at the outlet window of the Impella 5... prior to exposing the pump to the blood environment... 3... eparin in the purge system at the outset is a very important element of the purge system... hysicians should use their clinical judgement to assess the risks versus benefits of operating the Impella 5... device with lower concentrations of heparin to no heparin in the purge system... ote that in comparison to the other Impella devices, Impella 5... is designed with a lower purge flow rate which will result in an overall reduction in device delivered heparin to your patient... 4... pon initial placement, ensure that the guidewire is removed prior to starting the Impella 5 ... device... deally, the Impella 5... device is started by slowly increasing the pump speed through selection of pump performance levels (P-levels) until the desired maximum performance level is achieved for patient support... t is recommended to start at P2 and increase by two P-levels every minute... i...  P2 and wait for 1 minute, increase to P4 and wait 1 minute, increase to P6 and wait 1 minute, etc...  Physicians should use their clinical judgement to assess patient hemodynamic stability and the rate of increasing pump speed to the target performance level...  Prior to implant, it is encouraged to use the Impella Sidearm Retainer... f Impella Sidearm Retainer is not utilized then, it is recommended to install prior to transferring the patient to the ICU...  Abiomed recommends externally fixating the pump catheter using a 3-point fixation...  It is important to remember that cleaning agents, such as Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) should not be used on the Impella sidearm and purge filter... Three-Point Fixation  5... inally, carefully review purge cassette and purge fluid bag replacement procedures prior to exchanging... he Abiomed Clinical Support Center (CSC) is available 24/7/365 to answer questions or walk bedside personnel thru the step-by-step purge cassette change wizard on the AIC console...

Instructions for Use (IFU) document and previously published information about Impella best practices... est practice procedures for proper priming of the Impella 5... should never be rushed... ince there is a surgical procedure required for Impella 5... implantation, Abiomed recommends that the catheter preparation begin at an appropriate time, at least 15-20 min prior to anticipated insertion... ptimal device preparation starts with first laying the catheter out on a back or side table to remove any torque in the system... he Automated Impella Controller™ (AIC) should then be turned on and connected to the pump, walking through the stepby-step case start prompts which include priming the system using D5W with 25 U/mL or 50 U/mL heparin... e recognize that some patients may require a lower dose of heparin secondary to surgical bleeding concerns... t is recommended to maintain at least 12... U/mL in the purge solution for these patients to achieve similar device performance... Note that in comparison to the other Impella devices, Impella 5... is designed with a lower purge flow rate which will result in an overall reduction in device delivered heparin to your patient... he durability of Impella 5... using direct thrombin inhibitors in the purge system is unknown... se of alternative anticoagulants may reduce the longevity or performance of the Impella catheter... biomed recommends cleaning with water... terilization solutions which contain isopropyl alcohol (e... , ChloraPrep, Hibiclens) should never be applied to any of the Impella components, particularly the purge reservoir and purge filter as IPA could weaken or damage these components of the Impella purge system... he Impella Sidearm Retainer is now available for use with the Impella 5... and is included in the Impella 5... product package... his fixture could prevent damage to the purge system from inadvertent mishandling... elect pumps shipped prior to April may need to order separate Impella Sidearm Retainers... lease contact your Abiomed representative for information on receiving Impella Sidearm Retainers... ttention to these points during the priming of the Impella 5... with SmartAssist will help to ensure a successful Impella experience for you and a successful recovery for your patients... Data on file  IMPELLA® INDICATION & SAFETY INFORMATION  IMPELLA® LEFT-SIDE DEVICES  Cardiogenic Shock The Impella 2... , Impella CP®, Impella CP® with SmartAssist®, Impella 5... , Impella 5...  with SmartAssist® and Impella LD® Catheters, in conjunction with the Automated Impella Controller™ (collectively, “Impella® System Therapy”), are temporary ventricular support devices intended for short term use (≤ 4 days for the Impella 2...  Impella CP, and the Impella CP with SmartAssist, and ≤ 14 days for the Impella 5...  Impella 5... with SmartAssist and Impella LD) and indicated for the treatment of ongoing cardiogenic shock that occurs immediately (< 48 hours) following acute myocardial infarction or open heart surgery or in the setting of cardiomyopathy, including peripartum cardiomyopathy, or myocarditis as a result of isolated left ventricular failure that is not responsive to optimal medical management and conventional treatment measures (including volume loading and use of pressors and inotropes, with or without IABP)... he intent of Impella System Therapy is to reduce ventricular work and to provide the circulatory support necessary to allow heart recovery and early assessment of residual myocardial function...
