Baton Rouge General clinicians will learn about new ways to fight complex heart disease, courtesy of an 18-wheeler turned mobile laboratory.
The mobile lab training is geared to the hospital's cardiologists, nurses, and cath lab employees on the Impella device but is open to anyone.
Impella is the world's smallest heart pump and the only minimally-invasive heart pump approved by the FDA.
Trainers from Abiomed will educate BRG's heart care team on the Impella device and give a hands-on simulation of implanting the device from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m today.
