At the Berlin Heart Academy

At the Berlin Heart Academy we provide you the fundamentals of therapy with our cardiac support systems and current aspects of the clinical care of patients. Among other things this includes making decisions on the optimal therapy for patients with one of our heart support systems. The correct procedure for implantation with different cannulation and support options is discussed in fine detail, and the postoperative management of the patient is also discussed.

In the comprehensive practical portion you can train the daily use of our products on circulation 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 so that you will be prepared in case of a real life emergency.

Your stay in Berlin will be rounded off with a tour of our production facilities. Here you shall experience how our products are crafted by hand and thoroughly checked for their functionality.

In our  training sessions we shall orientate ourselves towards your  needs and we shall prepare an individual agenda for your training group. The training is aimed at medical professionals who are involved in treating patients with products from Berlin Heart, from the operating room to the intensive care unit to the regular ward.
