Ablation and cardiac rhythm management

EP suite for innovative, integrated solutions to streamline the complexity of EP procedures.

The global burden of cardiac arrhythmias is increasing. Patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), in particular, face an increased risk for stroke, dementia or heart failure. The number of affected patients is expected to double in the next 40 years.[1] Philips EP suite offers solutions to address this growing AF patient population. It can seamlessly integrate all of your preferred EP equipment, including Azurion Image Guided Therapy and EP navigator, to create an electrophysiology lab solution that fits your requested clinical and financial requirements.

Azurion Image Guided Therapy

The Azurion Image Guided Therapy System provides excellent ease of use, allowing you to streamline your workflow for increased lab efficiency and offering the simplicity of tableside control. Our advanced 3D imaging gives you insights into complex anatomies and helps you to navigate catheters with confidence.

Azurion Control Room workspace

Azurion Control Room workspace

With the Azurion Control Room Workspace, access to the applications is simple. The commercial option offers six 27” monitors for seamless access and control of up to 20 external video sources in full HD.

IGT Azurion ClarityIQ screen

ClarityIQ technology

The ClarityIQ technology option on the Azurion Image Guided Therapy System enables physicians to deliver fast, effective and simplified electrophysiology procedures with efficient clinical workflow, while reducing radiation dosage by 43%, compared to a system without ClarityIQ.[2,3] Multiple clinical studies with more than 19,000 patients have been published on ClarityIQ technology. ClarityIQ allows for significantly lower dose across clinical areas, patients and operators.[4-6]

EP Navigator -phantom

EP Navigator

EP Navigator provides detailed 3D anatomy, which can be overlaid onto live fluoroscopy, removing the need for a mapping system. Fast and simple workflow means that your 3D volume (CT or MR dataset)  is now automatically segmented to show the left atrium (LA) and trachea (and other heart structures) to enable the registration without using additional contrast. EP Navigator uses rotational scans for automatic registration. Obtain a quick reference point by viewing the rotational scan in various anatomic planes. Easily view and measure dimensions of the pulmonary veins (PV) and left atrium.

Image Guided Therapy System Azurion FlexVision Pro flexible status bar

FlexVision Pro

Many different modalities are used during an atrial fibrillation procedure. With FlexVision Pro, you can now control compatible applications in the interventional lab via the central touchscreen module and FlexVision Pro. Not only does this improve workflow within the exam room, but it also helps reduce the need for team members to leave the sterile area and walk to the control room during procedures, saving time and helping to avoid delays.

IGT Azurion rel 3.0 control room

FlexSpot

As more applications come into your lab, it’s more important than ever to work as efficiently as possible. FlexSpot gives you seamless access to applications in one compact, customizable workspace to significantly reduce clutter and simplify workflow. Team members can perform different tasks separately, without interrupting each other, to reduce gaps between cases.
