Seattle Man Explains How Abiomed’s Heart Pump Saved His Life

August 24, 2015


Norman Eiceman, an 84-year-old man from the Seattle suburbs, claims he would be dead if it were not for Abiomed’s Impella heart pump.

When Eiceman suffered from heart complications in June 2015, he was turned down for bypass surgery because it was too risky.

One month later, he sought out a second opinion and got one from Dr. William Lombardi, an interventional cardiologist at the University of Washington Medical Center.

Dr. Lombardi treated Eiceman with Abiomed’s Impella heart pump and saved his life.

Abiomed, a client of O’Neill and Associates, hosted a giant medical seminar at  the Grand Hyatt Seattle in early August, where Eiceman was able to thank his cardiologist.
