Join a conversation with Dr. Bob Wilson, founder of ACIST Medical Systems, about the ACIST CVi® Contrast Delivery System. ACIST CVi® System is an automated, variable-rate contrast injection system for angiographic procedures. Some key features of the CVi® mentioned are the variable rate injection controlled by the handheld AngioTouch®, 4 active safety sensors, peristaltic pump for saline delivery, and integrated hemodynamic monitoring from the catheter. Dr. Wilson mentions how CVi® uses pressure to achieve the desired flow rate selected, and how the limit can be set by the operator on the CVi® monitor. Pressure works closely with flow rate, which is the volume of fluid delivered in a specified amount of time. Read on to learn more about ACIST CVi® Contrast Delivery System and valuable insights regarding flow rate parameters and pressure.
