While cardiac pressure volume (PV) loops are now considered to be the gold standard in cardiac function assessment and are used to determine myocardial contractility, compliance, muscle energetics, and other important quantitative measures of function, Transonic Scisense PV Catheter technology has emerged as the most reliable research method to generate real-time ventricular PV loops in the intact heart.
Catheters are used with the ADVantage Pressure-Volume System. It is the only catheter-based system to accurately quantify true ventricular volume in real time using admittance technology. The ADVantage system phase signal provides real-time feedback about catheter position to ensure quality measurements from every procedure.
Ex vivo applications allow for the specific control over the heart’s loading conditions and electric potentials while also removing hormonal influences. This allows for a highly customized environment for new scientific discoveries. Pressure-volume loop data brings into focus the nuances of working heart applications. Our ADVantage pressure-volume system is the only system to accurately quantify true ventricular volume in real time using admittance technology. The ADVantage system Phase signal provides real time feedback about catheter position to ensure quality measurements from every procedure. Given that ex-vivo applications are highly customized to a lab’s needs, we work with our customers to customize our equipment to your exact specifications, ensuring you capture meaning results.
