The Millar Ventri-Cath catheters provide high-fidelity pressure, volume and internal ECG signals when connected to the MPVS Ultra system
Four different spacings of the 12 conductance electrodes (ten volume segments) are available. The following table will give an indication of the maximum ventricle length each model can be used for. Note, this distance can be dynamically adjusted during PV loop procedures to match individual ventricular axis in the MPVS Ultra control software.
|Model||Ventricular length||most suited animal model|
|Ventri-Cath 507||58 mm||smaller dog and pig models|
|Ventri-Cath 510||79 mm||large dog and pig as well sheep models|
|Ventri-Cath 512||93 mm||larger pig and sheep models|
|Ventri-Cath 515||144 mm||large animals of severe cardiomyopathy|
Each catheter model is available with a straight tip or a pig tail.
