Dr. Wilson, Interventional Cardiologist and founder of ACIST Medical Systems, explains the distinguishing features of the ACIST CVi® Contrast Delivery System compared to other injection systems. One notable difference is that ACIST CVi® utilizes longer tubing, which facilitates more pressure dissipation along its length. It is important to note that all pressure injectors have a flow rate limit, which depends on the catheter’s size. ACIST CVi® displays this information on the monitor, enhancing the ability to maintain appropriate pressure and flow rate levels.
“Oftentimes there is a very long tubing system within the ACIST System that allows you to get further form the table and get your catheter and all that business. So, with that longer tubing setting you can have more pressure dissipation across the tubing.” – Dr. Wilson
