Critical Care Technology

Biosensors International’s Critical Care Products division fosters the development of critical care catheter systems, hemodynamic monitoring, and related devices used during heart surgery procedures and intensive care treatment.
 

ACCUTRANS™ Disposable Blood Pressure Transducer

ACCUTRANS™ is a fully disposable blood pressure transducer system that delivers vital accuracy in invasive blood pressure measurement with lowest possibility of zero drift.

 

Its unique, Fast-Flush Device provides a means of intermittent and rapid manual flushing of the system. The Fast-Flush Device also prevents clotting and backflow of blood through the catheter.

The ACCUTRANS Fully Disposable Blood Pressure Transducer System is available in standard-kits and custom-kit configurations for neonatal, pediatrics, umbilical and intracranial invasive blood pressure monitoring.

Customized Kits

It is possible to configure custom kits to meet your procedural needs. You may ask for any existing component to be configured with other commercially available components.

The customized kits help you to increase efficiency in the set-up process and ensure accuracy in components selection. It eliminates wastage and helps you to save time and cost.

BIOTRANS™

BIOTRANS™ transducer is a blood pressure transducer that combines the performance, quality and ease of use of a fully disposable blood pressure transducer with the cost savings of a re-usable system.

 

It also incorporates a number of intelligent and exclusive features for saving caregivers’ valuable time.

Features and Benefits

  • Environmentally friendly — minimizes biological waste
  • Greater convenience and cost savings
  • Flexible and easy patient transfer from one environment to another
  • Easy maintenance and setup due to straight-through fluid path
  • "Touch Check" for full system function check
  • Standard and custom kits are available to meet your specific monitoring needs

Multi-Lumen Central Venous Catheter

Biosensors International offers a wide range of Central Venous Catheters (CVC) for patients, from infants to adults, to administer medication or fluids, obtain blood tests and directly obtain cardiovascular measurements such as the central venous pressure.

 

Our CVCs are made with a special polyurethane material which softens upon insertion into the body. This creates less trauma for the patient and provides greater control to the doctor during catheter insertion.

The soft-tip at the distal end allows the catheter to be navigated easily within the vessel without irritating the vessel walls. Our CVCs can be used with the commonly-available straight introducer needle, as well as the Y-Valve needle which allows for easy guide-wire insertion while minimizing air embolism and backflow of blood.

Features and Benefits

  • Superior geometric soft-tip design coupled with unique soft-blended bio-compatible material makes insertion safe and easy
  • Specially-formulated bio-compatible polyurethane material provides strength during insertion, yet softens in the body
  • Sufficiently radio-opaque material with clear, definite marking; ensures correct placement on the catheter tip
  • Specially-designed guidewire has a soft, flexible tip and prevents perforation (vascular trauma), yet has excellent stiffness that provides good torque to ensure firm insertion
  • Soft tip available in Single Lumen
  • 2 types of introducer needles available: Straight Needle and Y-Valve Needle. Y Valve Needle is designed for easy introduction of the guidewire. In addition, it also prevents the back-flow of blood and the occurrence of air embolism

Thermodilution and Pulmonary Artery Catheters

Biosensors International offers two types of catheters for pulmonary artery monitoring: Thermodilution (TD) Catheters and Pulmonary Artery (PA) Catheters. TD Catheters include a thermistor in its final assembly, which helps provide Cardiac output measurements.

Catheter tips often migrate to small arterial branches that are unable to safely accommodate inflated balloons. The SafetyWedge™ device has been introduced to reduce the risk of pulmonary artery rupture due to balloon over-pressurization. The most serious complication associated with PA catheter monitoring. The SafetyWedge™ device acts as a pressure relief valve to prevent over-pressurization of the distal balloon. This not only averts vessel rupture but the balloon rupture as well, and alerts the clinician to reposition the catheter.

BIOTRAY™

The BIOTRAY™ device offers the benefits of the SafetyWedge™ Thermodilution/pulmonary artery catheter and the Introducer Kit, all in a convenient, fully-accessorized all-in-one tray.

 


Bipolar Pacing Catheter

Biosensors’ Bipolar Pacing Catheter for temporary transvenous cardiac pacing was developed in response to market demand for a safe, secure and accurate device to support critical procedures in the catherization Lab, CCU, and Emergency Room settings.

Features and Benefits

  • Catheter is marked in 10 cm increments
  • Radio-opaque polyurethane tubing facilitates the use of fluoroscope for greater accuracy in catheter insertion and in verifying the position of the catheter
  • A lumen is incorporated into the catheter to provide electrical conductor isolation from electrodes to the connector pins. This provides maximum safety to the patient
  • Optional inflatable balloon, located at the distal tip, can be inflated to enable safe floatation of the catheter to the right ventricle. This method of insertion also minimizes catheter kinkage

Embolectomy Catheter

Biosensors’ Embolectomy Catheters offer a flexible PVC body coupled with a strong and symmetrical balloon. Its soft-tip material allows for easy arterial insertion. They come in a variety of sizes to cater to a wide range of patients from different age groups.

Features and Benefits

  • Offers simple, rapid removal of emboli and thrombi from the arterial system
  • Proprietary "low-profile" winding technique for balloon attachment ensures balloon symmetry, providing uniform contact with vessel walls
  • Soft, rounded tip promotes easy arterial insertion for reduced trauma, artery puncture, and plaque avulsion
  • Flexible polyvinylchloride body with "workhorse" latex balloon
  • Winged hub for easy catheter manipulation during insertion and attachment of balloon inflation syringe
  • Available in four lengths and six diameters, ranging from two French to seven French
  • Size and balloon inflation capacity printed on proximal end for convenient and rapid identification
  • 2F and 3F Embolectomy Catheters are manufactured in Nylon body and the other sizes are manufactured in PVC body
