               These protocols are the work of the Heart Function, Mechanical Circulatory Support (MCS) &
               Transplant Program team members, whose collective experience over the years and from
               different centers around the world have been brought together in this document. The evidence
               base for these protocols was researched by physicians, nurse practitioners and nurse
               coordinators who subsequently presented to the entire team for discussion and made into this

               While protocols are important in standardizing care they are only a guide to patient
               management and are not a substitute for discussing patient care with colleagues or obtaining
               further advice when necessary.
