Rotors Unplugged…Eliminating Myths @ HRS booth #731
Thermodilution (TD) Catheters and Pulmonary Artery (PA) Catheters with SafetyWedge
TD Catheters include a thermistor in its final assembly, which helps provide Cardiac output measurements.
Catheter tips often migrate to small arterial branches that are unable to safely accommodate inflated balloons. The SafetyWedge™ device has been introduced to reduce the risk of pulmonary artery rupture due to balloon over-pressurization. The most serious complication associated with PA catheter monitoring. The SafetyWedge™ device acts as a pressure relief valve to prevent over-pressurization of the distal balloon. This not only averts vessel rupture but the balloon rupture as well, and alerts the clinician to reposition the catheter.
FIRMap Guided Therapy – TOPERA
Designed with complex arrhythmias and associated heart anatomy in mind, the FIRMap (Focal Impulse and Rotor Modulation) panoramic contact-mapping tool optimizes the clinician’s view of full-chamber, continuous electrical activity. This unique diagnostic catheter is sized to the patient’s chamber, mapping the anatomy from a stable position. Data from the FIRMap catheter is sent to the RhythmView mapping system for processing.
Cardia’s Left Atrial Appendage Closure System Commercially Available in The Benelux
The Ultraseal LAA Occluder has been developed for the transvenous closure of the Left Atrial Appendage. The patented dual articulating center-post of the device allows for easy deployment and full retrievability, ensuring proper position and closure of the LAA.
The patented “dual articulating joint” of the Ultraseal LAA allows the device to conform naturally to the most tortuous of LAA anatomies. An integral locking delivery and retrieval mechanism ensures safe and stable deployments.
Ultraseal LAA device is fully retrievable, thus allowing a device to be positioned and re-positioned as many times necessary to ensure accurate placement during deployment.
