Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump! 9 Languages! Version 0.91

Introducing new features added to Infirmary Integrated in version 0.91:

  • Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump (IABP) simulator is complete
    • Arterial waveforms accurately modeled with and without IABP inflation and/or pulsed cardiac rhythm.
    • Augmentation time on waveform scales with heart rate.
  • Full support for 9 languages (recently added Korean and Swahili)
  • Miscellaneous improvements to realism
    • Transduced lines now must be zeroed prior to use.

See the screenshots and captions below for more information, and check out the Downloads page to get the new version!

A realistic experience setting up a balloon pump! You must zero the arterial blood pressure transducer for the balloon pump to function if it is set to pressure trigger. Also, don’t forget to prime the balloon pump with helium! And keep an eye on the helium tank to make sure it’s not empty…
Currently, frequency and triggers work properly! You can toggle 1:1, 1:2, or 1:3. And if set to pressure trigger, the pump will only operate if there is an arterial waveform (zeroed the transducer with a pulsed rhythm); similarly, ECG trigger will only operate if there is a QRS complex.
