Mennen introduces new cath lab system
Mennen Medical, a provider of patient monitoring and hemodynamic monitoring systems, has introduced its new catheterization lab system, the Horizon XVu.

The XVu, embedded with an interface and analysis system, includes network ability and workflow connectivity as part of Mennen’s total IT solution. The software displays eight main focus areas. Combined with windows and an intuitive graphic interface, the system allows layouts to suit both cardiac and peripheral angiography procedures, according to the Horsham, Pa.-based company.   

The CFE, Mennen’s front-end vital signs monitor, is designed to work in concert with the Horizon XVu. The company said its CFE acquires patient vital sign data that includes: ECG (up to 12 leads), Resp, SpO2, NIBP, cardiac output (thermodilution method), two channels of temperature and four invasive BPs. The unit allows for in-room personnel to perform functions (zero BP; cycle NIBP) without the control room's assistance. In addition, Mennen said that the CFE features an integrated EtCO2 module and six intracardiac channels for electrophysiological studies.
