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.
"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.
