Yesterday Philips announced its new Xper Flex Cardio Physiomonitoring system for intraoperative hemodynamic analysis.
The device provides clinicians with Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) measurements, as well as ECG, respiration, and other vitals. It features both 12 and 16-lead ECG analysis, giving more options when working in the EP, cath labs, and during more invasive procedures.
More details from the product page:
- Space-saving design delivers placement and positioning flexibility
- Streamlined FFR workflow makes it easy to access FFR measurements, from acquisition to automatic data entry onto reports
- DXL Algorithm provides 16-lead ECG analysis, Culprit Artery Detection and patented ST Maps.
Xper Flex Cardio packs a lot of advanced technology into a small package. At just 4.4 lbs. (2.0 kg) and 7.5″ x 6″ x 10″ (19 cm x 15 cm x 25 cm), the device is six times smaller and four times lighter than previous systems and fits easily into most spaces. In a crowded lab, a small physiomonitoring system can be a great advantage, providing clinicians the freedom to attend to the patient from nearly any angle needed, and avoiding table movement restrictions that can be caused by larger systems.
In addition, Xper Flex Cardio’s VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) mounting capability allows mounting in many types of locations, including on an X-ray table rail in a lab, on an articulating arm, on a roll cart that can be used in multiple labs, or against a wall by the bedside in a patient monitoring area. Adding to the flexibility, the control computer can be located in either the control room or the procedure room.
