Cabin Cathpax® CRM (Cardiac Rhythm Management) Double represents a simple and ergonomic solution for the protection of operators against the effects of continuous exposure to X-rays during cardiac procedures.
A cabin designed to reduce the ionising radiation exposure of the operator to the minimum:
- On long term, a regular exposure to X-rays may cause the development of several pathologies, such as cerebral and thyroid tumors, cataracts, reproductive organ impairment, cutaneous cancers, vascular disease and genetic alterations. To learn more, you can consult our White Paper on “X-ray dangers in interventional cath labs”
- The cabin Cathpax® provides an integral protection of 2 mm Pb eq., far superior to the protection of the personal protective equipment conventionnally used, such as lead aprons, thyroid shields, lead glasses or visors, having a maximal protection of 0,5 mm eq. Pb on the zone that they are covering
The Cathpax® cabin offers a better comfort during the procedures:
- Personal radiation protection equipment, particularly lead aprons are relatively heavy (4kg to 8 kg). The regular wear of this equipment can over time cause at least one orthopaedic trouble for 50% of interventionnal cardiologists (Source : Klein LW, et al., Occupational health hazards of interventional cardiologists in the current decade: Results of the 2014 SCAI membership survey. Catheter Cardiovasc Interv. 2015;86:913-924).
- The use of Cathpax® liberates the operator from the wear of any personal radiation protection equipment, reducing the fatigue and optimising the healthcare quality provided to the patient.
