MountainView Hospital will host a Mobile Learning Lab, a highly interactive, facilitated learning experience brought directly to the hospital with the goal of training hospital staff on one of the newest, minimally-invasive heart support and recovery technologies.The Mobile Learning Lab will be at MountainView Hospital on Jan. 4.
The world’s smallest heart pump, is a minimally-invasive heart pump that offers hemodynamic support for patients during certain heart procedures – assisting the pumping function of the heart. The heart pumps are approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to provide treatment during elective, high-risk percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures, and in the emergent treatment of cardiogenic shock, a condition that typically occurs during or after a heart attack.
The Mobile Learning Lab offers cardiologists, nurses and cath lab staff at MountainView Hospital a convenient opportunity to learn about how these heart pumps can best be used for those patients in critical need of cardiac support. The Mobile Learning Lab contains various simulators, animations and key information.
“Our community of patients and partners deserve the best therapies available. Our participation in the Mobile Learning Lab will ensure our staff is highly trained to effectively use one of the most innovative cardiology technology solutions available for our patients,” said Ann Carter, Director of Cardiovascular Services at MountainView Hospital.
