TITLE
IABP malfunction
DETAILS OF INCIDENT

The IABP's monitor became "white" and IABP therapy completely stopped while on a CICU patient around 20.00. The on-call perfusionist was called in. By the time the perfusionist arrived the IABP re-established its full functionality. All power cables and connections were found intact by both the CICU nurses and the on-call perfusionist. The perfusionist swapped the faulty IABP with another cardiosave and the device was placed out of service for investigations.

The patients haemodynamics did not deteriorate during the 8minutes without IABP's support.
