Hello Miss Maryellen!

My father just came home from rehab with his new LVAD 2 days ago and we're interested in purchasing your equipment. My only question is whether they are compatible with the Heartmate 3. 

Thank you for your kindness.

Hi Faye.    I would not charge you for any of these.  I am thankful that they will be used.  I just could not throw away knowing how valuable they are.   So let me know and we can talk about getting them to you.  I am in Florida.

Thanks.   Maryellen

Morning all, 

Just wanted to post, as a VAD coordinator. It's great to give away gear that you wear, HM II and III have the same wearable equipment. As far as the patient cable goes, and really all equipment, that is single patient use only and is only good with the power modules (not mobile power unit) and actually gets changed out every year. Good luck to everyone!

Hi Ms. Fitzgerald!  Thanks sooo much for your information.   I was not sure how to answer because I did not find much out googling for this!!  Not a common thing I know though...... Thanks and I will talk to the people who answered.

Thanks again!   Maryellen

My husband just started this process of getting ok'd for a LVAD.  I keep reading about a shower bag...So what is it?  And you can only shower once a week?  

Like I said....we're newbies...if he gets the go ahead...soon we'll be oldies!
