Mennen Medical Launches Horizon XVu Cath Lab System for Hemodynamic Monitoring


September 11, 2008

September 11, 2008 - Mennen Medical recently released a new cath lab hemodynamic monitoring system, the Horizon XVu, which is embedded with an ultra modern interface and analysis system, includes network ability and efficient workflow connectivity as part of Mennen Medical’s total IT solution.

The new software displays eight main focus areas. Combined with user-friendly windows and an intuitive graphic interface, the system enables various layouts to suit both cardiac and peripheral angiography procedures.

The CFE, Mennen Medical’s proprietary front-end vital signs monitor, is designed to work in concert with the Horizon XVu. It’s small size allows it to be rail-mounted on the procedure table for maximum space utilization, the company said. It is manufactured employing the latest technology available and is designed to operate under the demanding workload conditions existing in both cardiac and peripheral angiography environments. The CFE acquires patient vital sign data that includes: ECG (up to 12 leads), respiration, SpO2, NIBP, cardiac output (thermodilution method), two channels of temperature and four invasive blood pressure monitors. Easily accessed controls on the unit allow for in room personnel to perform functions (zero BP; cycle NIBP, etc.) without the control room's assistance. In addition the CFE features an Integrated EtCO2 module and six intracardiac channels for electrophysiological studies.
