This video demonstrates how to implant the Revivent TC System to reduce the volume of the left ventricle (LV) in heart failure patients. Reducing the size of the LV can help make pumping more efficient, helping to reduce the workload of a failing heart. It is a minimally invasive, catheter-based, closed-chest alternative to conventional surgical ventricular restoration (SVR). It uses catheter-deployed anchors designed to exclude scarred myocardial tissue from the LV to help restore its more natural conical shape. Read about the system gaining European approval. Read about system starting its U.S. clinical trial.

Shimadzu's latest generation interventional lab angiography imaging system, the Trinias, enables advanced imaging capabilities, including reduced patient dose, 3-D rotation angiography acquisitions table side, and stent enhancement software. This video tour of the system was created at the 2016 Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) meeting.
With quality of care and cost efficiency at the top of your mind, there is no room in your hospital for waste from high-value supplies. However, managing your critical supplies in the cath lab can be a challenge. How can you get the supply waste in your facility under control? Watch this short video to learn how an automated inventory management solution could help you reduce the waste in your hospital while improving your total cost of care.
With bundled payments putting increased pressure on hospitals to manage supply costs while providing quality patient care, there is no room in your cath lab for high-value medical device waste. An automated inventory management solution could help you find and reduce the waste hiding in your supply chain while helping to improve your total cost of care. Visit cardinalhealth.com/CIMS.
Pacemakers, stents and bandages — keeping tracking of what is on hand and accurately capturing charges can be a challenge. What if you could track, manage and analyze your cath lab inventory – low cost to high value – to reveal powerful business intelligence and shine a light on new savings and revenue capture?
You have bigger priorities than managing inventory. Patient safety, quality care and clinician satisfaction top the list. But automated technology can help you improve the way you purchase, control and manage your cath lab inventory, allowing you to positively support your top priorities – and your hospital’s overall performance. For more information, watch this archived webinar on inventory management in the cath lab
Healthcare reform is changing the way you provide care. With a focus on cost efficiency and quality, tracking utilization and efficient inventory management are big opportunities in your cardiovascular suite to help you manage costs and support patient safety initiatives. See how using the right tool for the right supply is key to demonstrating ROI. Watch a webinar on cath lab inventory tracking — Stop the Emotional Stocking! Revitalize your Cath Lab.

DAIC Editor Dave Fornell takes a video tour of some of the most innovative new interventional cardiology technologies he found at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) 2016 meeting. Watch the related VIDEO “Editor's Choice of the Most Innovative New Technologies at TCT 2015.”
ITN/DAIC Editor Dave Fornell takes a tour of some of the most innovative new trends and health information technologies (IT) on the expo floor of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) 2016 meeting. Technologies include radiation dose management, wearables, patient engagement, admission kiosks, analytics software and imaging workflow aids.
DAIC Editor Dave Fornell takes a tour of some of the trends and interesting new technologies from the vendor booths on the expo floor at the 2016 meeting of the American College of Cardiology (ACC).
John Showalter, M.D., CHIO, University of Mississippi Medical Center, explains how he created population health monitoring programs to help identify high-risk patients that should receive extra attention to reduce readmissions.
DAIC/ITN Editor Dave Fornell shows examples of new healthcare IT technology at the 2015 HIMSS meeting that will change the future of healthcare. These include healthcare wearable devices, smart phone apps, virtual training software, population health data, and technology for patient engagement.
At HIMSS 2015, one of the biggest trends was the explosion of consumer health related wearable devices and smartphone apps and how these will integrate into the healthcare system for improved patient monitoring and patient engagement. Thomas Martin, HIMSS director of health information systems, explains this trend and where these devices will fit in during the coming years.
Mony Weschler, chief applications strategist and architect, application technology services, Montefiore Health System, New York, explains how he integrated enterprise imaging and mobile ECG waveform at Montefiore Health System.

William Abraham, M.D., FACC, discusses advances in heart failure device treatment technologies at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) 2016 annual meeting. He is director of the division of cardiovascular medicine and a professor of internal medicine, physiology and cell biology at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. He also served as principal investigator of the CHAMPION Trial for the CardioMEMS device. Read the article "Reducing Heart Failure Readmissions."
It is critical to educate patients who are at risk of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), so Rahul Doshi, M.D., director of electrophysiology, associate professor of clinical medicine, Keck Medical Center of University of Southern California, explains sudden cardiac death (SCD) to his patients using a simple illustration. Visit SCDFacts.org for additional resources for you and your team to support the SCD conversation with your patients. One in five post-AMI patients have been shown to be at high risk of dying after PCI.1 The majority of mortality in AMI patients post-PCI occurs in the first three months — one out of every 10 high-risk patients die, with about 60 percent of this mortality due to SCD.[1,2]
