Philips Unveils Compact Xper Flex Cardio Physiomonitoring

Flexibility and clinical decision support

Xper Flex Cardio Physiomonitoring system combines flexibility suitable for a host of interventional environments with clinical decision support tools that aid efficient diagnosis.

Space-Saving design

With a small form factor of only 7.5”x 6”x 10” (19,05 cm x 15,24 cm x 25,4 cm), Xper Flex Cardio is designed to fit into nearly any space.It features a VESA mounting capability that enables mounting in varied locations.

Decision support before, during and after interventional procedures

Packed within its small form factor are advanced clinical decision support features that deliver valuable patient information in the patient preparation room, during the interventional procedure, and in the recovery room. Then, with just one click, you can capture the relevant data in an ECG report.

Integrated FFR obtains FFR measurements efficiently

Xper Flex Cardio displays Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) measurements in real time, and then stores them as part of the hemodynamic and cath lab record, so that reports can be automatically populated with FFR data.

DXL ECG Algorithm delivers precision and consistency

The DXL ECG Algorithm produces precise and consistent ECG measurements that are used to generate interpretive statements. By applying age- and gender-specific criteria, the algorithm provides ECG interpretation that helps clinicians accurately assess the cardiac state of patients.

Culprit Artery Detection helps pinpoint occlusions

Culprit Artery Detection provides suggestions on the probable site of an occlusion prior to a cath procedure, saving valuable time and assisting with procedure planning.

ST Maps indicate ST elevation or depression

Our patented ST Maps provide a graphical indication of ST elevation or depression from either 12- or 16-lead ECGs in both frontal and transverse planes, helping physicians assess a patient’s condition before and during the procedure, as well as evaluate the results of the intervention.

16-lead ECGs provide more information

Xper Flex Cardio offers the choice of 12- or 16-lead ECGs. With four additional leads that can be used for improved detection of the right ventricular and posterior infarct, 16-lead ECG fills in the “blind spots” of a 12-lead ECG.

Critical Values highlight important findings

Critical Values are highly visible independent statements that appear on the ECG reports. These Critical Value statements highlight conditions requiring immediate clinical attention, and can be used to support discovery-to-treatment and quality initiatives.

Philips Healthcare announced the release of the Xper Flex Cardio Physiomonitoring system, a hemodynamic cardiac monitoring solution used to facilitate invasive investigation of heart and vascular disease. Equipped with the latest advanced clinical decision support tools to assist clinicians in evaluating a patient’s overall cardio performance, and general cardiovascular status, Xper Flex Cardio may also be used to display and analyze invasive blood pressure, surface EGG (electrocardiogram), respiration and other vital signs. The system is specifically designed for environments such as cath labs, EP labs and interventional radiology and cardiovascular Hybrid OR environments.

The Xper Flex Cardio Physiomonitoring system presents several distinct advantages over previous systems, including traditional 12-lead interpretation of the resting ECG in addition to 16-lead analysis, enabling clinicians the freedom to choose which approach is most appropriate for different situations. The additional right chest and posterior leads used in 16-lead ECGs can provide information that may not be apparent on traditional 12-lead ECGs.

“Implementing Xper Flex Cardio has helped us enhance both the functionality and accuracy of our cath lab,” said Karen Keane, director, Cardiac Cath Labs, Martin Memorial Medical Center. “Its ability to analyze up to 16-leads of simultaneously-acquired ECG waveforms enables us to refine patient care, and its smaller size makes it the perfect system for our high-use, multi-function lab.”

Xper Flex Cardio also comes equipped with integrated Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) functionality-which provides data that could aid in treatment decisions-and a DXL ECG Algorithm analysis capability that uses multiple steps to produce precise and consistent ECG measurements that are used to generate interpretive statements. Additionally, the system has Culprit Artery Detection-a technology that provides suggestions on the probable site of an occlusion prior to a cath procedure, saving valuable time and assisting with procedure planning-and patented ST Maps that provide a graphical indication of ST elevation.

As part of this announcement, the company also stated that it has entered into an agreement with Volcano Corporation to ensure a seamless experience for mutual customers of the Volcano SmartMap system. Additionally, Philips has secured strong ties with FFR market leader St. Jude Medical.

Yesterday Philips announced its new Xper Flex Cardio Physiomonitoring system for intraoperative hemodynamic analysis.

It features both 12 and 16-lead ECG analysis, giving more options when working in the EP, cath labs, and during more invasive procedures.

Space-saving design delivers placement and positioning flexibility

Streamlined FFR workflow makes it easy to access FFR measurements, from acquisition to automatic data entry onto reports

DXL Algorithm provides 16-lead ECG analysis, Culprit Artery Detection and patented ST Maps.

Xper Flex Cardio packs a lot of advanced technology into a small package. At just 4.4 lbs. (2.0 kg) and 7.5? x 6? x 10? (19 cm x 15 cm x 25 cm), the device is six times smaller and four times lighter than previous systems and fits easily into most spaces. In a crowded lab, a small physiomonitoring system can be a great advantage, providing clinicians the freedom to attend to the patient from nearly any angle needed, and avoiding table movement restrictions that can be caused by larger systems.

In addition, Xper Flex Cardio’s VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) mounting capability allows mounting in many types of locations, including on an X-ray table rail in a lab, on an articulating arm, on a roll cart that can be used in multiple labs, or against a wall by the bedside in a patient monitoring area. Adding to the flexibility, the control computer can be located in either the control room or the procedure room.
