  • AC3 Optimus Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump
    The AC3 Optimus Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump provides counterpulsation therapy to adult patients with impaired left ventricular function. It provides hemodynamic support of blood pressure and reduced cardiac work through volume displacement principles. The pump is attached to an balloon catheter, which is inserted into the femoral artery and positioned in the descending thoracic aorta.

  • HyperView
     The HyperView system is used for noncontact tissue oxygenation measurement. It utilizes noninvasive, nonionizing hyperspectral imaging technology to assess tissue oxygenation in cases involving local, regional, and systemic flow ischemia. The device displays color-coded images and reports oxyhemoglobin levels, deoxyhemoglobin levels, and oxygen saturation in the superficial tissue.
