Get your rhythm back.

Serious heart rhythm disorders called arrhythmias, affect the lives of millions of people daily. Unfortunately, most treatments for these conditions are generic and one-size-fits-all, with mixed results.


But there’s hope.


We believe there is a better way to treat serious heart rhythm disorders such as atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. Using Abbott Electrophysiology’s technology, doctors can identify the sources of arrhythmias that are unique to each person. Now treatment can be tailored to your individual needs.

The most common heart rhythm disorder, atrial fibrillation (AF, or afib) is a serious global public health problem which affects millions of people around the world. If left untreated, AF doubles the risk of heart-related deaths and also increases stroke risk by up to 500%. Unfortunately, although it is such a serious health problem, AF has historically been difficult to treat with an acceptable degree of success.

In response to this unaddressed need, Abbott, Inc. has developed a unique 3D analysis and mapping solution (the Abbott 3D Mapping System), which consists of the RhythmView Workstation and FIRMap diagnostic catheter. The Abbott 3D Mapping System has been designed to enable physicians to view the electrical activity of the heart, thereby supporting the diagnosis and patient-specific treatment planning for a variety of heart arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, atrial tachycardia, and ventricular tachycardia.

The Abbott 3D Mapping System received FDA clearance in 2013 and is now in routine use at several leading medical centers throughout the United States.

RhythmView® Rotor Mapping System

The Leader in Rotor Mapping

The RhythmView system is the first rotor mapping solution that identifies the mechanisms that sustain atrial fibrillation.  This system is based on a century of basic science and backed by more than a decade of fundamental substrate research in arrhythmia patients. Using the FIRMap® basket catheter, the RhythmView system quickly processes 64 electrograms to identify the areas with substrates sustaining the atrial fibrillation.  For the first time, physicians can identify patient-specific sources that sustain serious heart rhythm disorders.  The system provides a unique set of software tools to help physicians identify key areas of rotation.



RhythmView Reference Electrode

 

Introducing the RhythmView Reference Electrode, a simple reliable reference for your unipolar recordings. It is designed to optimize unipolar electrogram clarity and streamline RhythmView procedure workflow.  Additionally, in place of internal reference electrodes, the RhythmView Reference Electrode has the potential to reduce cost and avoid additional insertion-site injury.

The RhythmView Reference Electrode is a custom designed solution, consisting of a large surface area electrode with a chemical composition optimized for recording fidelity and patient adhesion. It features a button-snap connector that can be connected to standard patient-safe cables.



Vado® Steerable Sheath

FINE TUNED FOR FREEDOM

 

Introducing the Vado steerable sheath, featuring the first and only design on the market without pull wires.  Designed to elevate your confidence in navigating the heart with precision,

the Vado steerable sheath provides you with the control, retention and stability that only our patented TruVectorTM technology can deliver.  Experience the best of both worlds, with the stability of a fixed curve sheath and the freedom to operate of a deflectable sheath.  Precise handle to tip response combined with a robust shaft design provides consistent and outstanding torqueability and maneuverability throughout the most challenging and lengthy procedures.
