IABP timing challenges the nurse not only with a waveform analysis but also an understanding of complex physiologic concepts crucial to patient management. Optimizing timing through assessment of the five points of the IABP waveform permits the critical care nurse to increase the hemodynamic benefits of IABP therapy, potentially improving patient outcome.
