Measuring physiology where it happens
"Time is Brain" and "Time is Muscle" are not just slogans in neurology and cardiology. It is well-documented in peer-reviewed clinical literature that there is a specific treatment time window for providing improved outcomes. Current treatment for acute stroke, heart attack or other critical vascular situations frequently involves an interventional catheter procedure to perform angioplasty, place a stent, extract a clot or stop bleeding. Accurate physiological monitoring is imperative - but can be a time delaying factor.
It is estimated that setting up and inserting an arterial line for accurate pressure monitoring can delay initial treatment in a cath lab by 30-45 minutes...a large portion of the critical treatment window.
With the Endophys Pressure Sensing Access System physicians treating critical patients do not need to alter their technique - placement of the Endophys Pressure Sensing Access System is simple and direct. Life-sustaining accurate pressure data is available immediately upon insertion.

The Endophys Pressure
Sensing Access System
The Endophys system includes a single-use disposable Pressure Sensing Sheath and a small, easy-to-use Blood Pressure Monitor instrument which both produces and measures the optical signal
through the fiberoptic channel of the Pressure Sensing Sheath.
It eliminates the need to insert a separate peripheral arterial catheter for blood pressure monitoring.
Together, the system provides
an unprecedented level of speed and accuracy for vascular interventions.
A unique solution to
a longstanding problem
