Berlin Heart Academy

Berlin Heart is your partner throughout the entire VAD therapy: from choosing the right system, through implantation, to postoperative management for your patient.


Welcome at the Berlin Heart Academy!

The Berlin Heart Academy offers an individual education and training program. Staff members of the Clinical Affairs department carry this training out. Due to the long clinical experience of our trainers the program is practice-oriented and tailored to your needs. The training is complemented by case studies and discussions from everyday clinical practice.

At the Berlin Heart Academy

At the Berlin Heart Academy we provide you the fundamentals of therapy with our ventricular assist devices and current aspects of the clinical care of patients. This includes, among others, choosing the optimal therapy for patients supported with one of our VAD systems. The correct procedure for implantation with various cannulation and support options is discussed in fine detail, as well as the postoperative management of the patient.

In the comprehensive practical part you can train the daily use of our products on circulatory models. You will learn about the routine use of our systems as well as the various settings and options for optimization. In training sessions, you will learn to respond adequately to problems and emergencies and be prepared for real life emergency situations.

Your stay in Berlin will be rounded off with a visit to our production facilities. Here you shall experience how our products are manufactured and thoroughly checked for functionality.

In our training sessions we respond to your needs and offer a customized agenda for your training group. The training is aimed at medical professionals who are involved in treating patients with Berlin Heart products, from the operating room to the intensive care unit to the regular ward. To allow the most valuable training we recommend group sizes of six to eight people. Our goal is to prepare you optimally for the care of your patients in the daily routine and deepen your knowledge.

We would be very pleased to welcome you for some stimulating days of training in Berlin.


On site in your clinic

With training in your own clinic, we enable you and your team to integrate the learning material into your daily routine. During this training we shall provide you with the basics in patient care and managing the VAD system. Thereby, we address any questions you have and provide practical advice. Providing you with practical advice and solutions for problem situations will make you more comfortable in caring for your patients.

In the practical part the function of the system can be simulated with a mobile mock circulation loop. This gives you the opportunity to deepen and consolidate your knowledge about the handling of the system. We also have the possibility to simulate clinical situations in practice and teach you to act appropriately.

Our trainings are designed such as to meet both your expectations and needs. The training is aimed at attending physicians, nurses, VAD coordinators, perfusionists and physiotherapy staff. In order to make the training as efficient as possible, we recommend a maximum of 20 participants.
We will be very pleased to provide clinical support in the care of your patients on site.
