Intraaortic balloon counterpulsation: A retrospective clinical audit at a major Australian cardiothoracic tertiary referral hospital - 1995 to 2001
Lewis, Peter A., Townsend, Shane, Chapman, Helen M., Courtney, Mary D., & Coyer, Fiona M. (2003) Intraaortic balloon counterpulsation: A retrospective clinical audit at a major Australian cardiothoracic tertiary referral hospital - 1995 to 2001. Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, 31(2), p. 230.
Intraaortic balloon counterpulsation (IABC) is an established treatment for the support of a failing heart. In the setting of cardiac failure, incidence of IABC utilisation can be grouped into five categories: post bypass; cardiogenic shock; acute myocardial infarction (MI) and MI extension; elective; and miscellaneous. The aim of this study was to compare published American and European insertion indications and mortality, with those experienced at a major Australian cardiothoracic tertiary referral hospital.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
