Cardioblate™ 68000 Surgical Ablation System Generator
The keystone to the Medtronic Cardioblate system, this generator comes with an advanced dose-response algorithm that can customise energy delivery to achieve reliable, reproducible trans-murality. The device comes with audible tones and touch-screen messages for emitting critical information and status notification.
BIS™ Complete 2-channel Monitoring System
Providing valuable information on patient status to assist in identification and address of their unique anaesthetic requirements, the Bispectral IndexTM (BISTM) monitoring system works out a patient-targeted approach towards induction, maintenance and emergence. The powerful system utilizes state-of-the-art technology to process EEG information and non-invasively both measures and interprets brain wave activity concerning effects of anaesthetic agents.
