Millar's Mikro-Cath Pressure Catheter delivers true hemodynamic data for deeper insight into cardiovascular function, helping guide diagnostic decisions when precise measurements count. Mikro-Cath data from the source provides reliable signals, including accurate dP/dt for advanced clinical applications, such as exercise studies, drug therapy evaluation, and heart failure cases.
Mikro-Cath™ Pressure Catheters
Mikro-Cath™ Pressure Catheters use Millar's patented pressure sensor technology to record precise measurements of cardiovascular function, unaffected by motion artifacts or body position. This high-fidelity pressure data helps to identify potential cardiovascular conditions and make in-depth assessments in real time.
Clinicians can obtain more comprehensive and accurate measurements for:
- Left Ventricular Pressures (LVP)
- Right Ventricular Pressures (RVP)
- Mean Arterial Pressures (MAP)
- Valve Gradients
- Radial Artery Pressures
- Peripheral Lesion Pressure Gradients
Mikro-Cath Catheter Versus Traditional Fluid-Filled Catheters
With an appropriately sized guide catheter or introducer, the Mikro-Cath can be easily integrated into any cath lab’s hemodynamic system via standard interface cables, offering an immediate upgrade to the fluid-filled catheter.
When compared to fluid-filled catheters, the Mikro-Cath Pressure Catheter provides real-time, accurate blood pressure data. The Mikro-Tip® sensor measures blood pressure at the source, providing a true representation of the blood pressure waveform, and eliminates many of the common shortfalls of fluid-filled catheters, including signal variances from patient height or position changes.
|Accurate dP/dt||Unreliable dP/dt|
|True pressure signal||Augmentation of signal - overshoot, resonance|
|No time delay||Time delay|
|Free from motion artifacts||Motion artifacts - catheter whip|
|True pressure readings at any height in fluid||Gravitational effects on zero|
Mikro-Cath Targets Precise Accuracy
The Mikro-Cath Pressure Catheter delivers repeatable, exact data for reliable insight into cardiovascular, respiratory, and intracompartmental pressure cases. The solid-state catheter is unaffected by motion artifacts or body position, providing data you can count on when making critical clinical decisions. The Mikro-Cath also provides expert evaluation for benchtop studies when evaluating efficacy of medical device performance.
