RhythmView Reference Electrode
Abbott is dedicated to the pursuit of identifying the source that sustains Atrial fibrillation in your patients. To that end, we continue to improve and evolve rotor mapping technology in the RhythmView Mapping System. One area that we have identified as an opportunity for improvement is the unipolar reference electrode.
While we have designed the FIRMap catheter to optimize full-chamber unipolar recording, the available return electrode options on conventional recording systems can create a variety of frustrations.
- ECG references can be subject to electrical noise and motion artifact due to small surface area, poor adhesion, and respiration motion on chest electrodes.
- Inserting an internal catheter reference often requires additional cost, additional lab time, and an extra insertion site on the patient.
A reliable unipolar reference to simplify your procedures should be available – so we created one.
- ECG references often lack fidelity to capture clear unipolar signals. The RhythmView Reference Electrode optimizes unipolar recordings by minimizing power line noise and baseline artifact
- Internal catheters often require the expense of an additional catheter and insertion site. With our solution, you have the potential to save procedure time, cost and avoid the additional insertion site.
- Return electrodes often feature material composition that created undesirable voltage potential and lack patient safe adapters. The RhythmView reference electrode features a button connector that can be connected to ECG or a 2mm pin.
