St. Jude Medical launches visualisation system to improve EP lab workflow


St. Jude Medical announced the launch of the VantageView system in the United States and Europe on 15 June 2011. The VantageView system is a state-of-the-art, high-definition (HD) monitor that eliminates the need for multiple monitors and enhances workflow by improving the visualisation of critical case information in the electrophysiology lab.

This new system was designed to consolidate the display of information from multiple technologies into one centralised location, displaying images from mapping systems, recording systems, fluoroscopy and ultrasound, among others.

“For the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias, improving procedural workflow is an important way to create efficiencies and manage the cost of delivering care,” said Jane J Song, president of the St. Jude Medical Atrial Fibrillation Division. “By adding a large screen to replace several smaller screens, the VantageView system can better integrate labs and create those efficiencies.”

The system includes a 56 inch HD monitor that can display up to eight video images simultaneously with four times the resolution seen in standard 1080p consumer monitors. The VantageView system offers exceptional image quality with greater detail than the monitors typically used in EP labs today. In addition to enhanced image quality, the VantageView system can be seamlessly integrated with the EP lab’s multiple diagnostic and treatment systems, allowing clinicians to customise screen displays and more easily view and control patient and procedure information.
