PILOT TLS ECG technology provides immediate feedback on CVC tip placement, enhancing both patient and clinician satisfaction by minimising exposure to X-ray radiation and enabling consistent CVC placement in both the acute and non-acute settings
Versatile: Can be used with any brand of PICC, short and long term CVC and implantable port
Portable: A small, lightweight device that can be used in acute and non-acute settings
Simple: Provides clear indicators of P wave changes. The focus is on accurate P wave interpretation in order to facilitate navigation of the line during the insertion procedure and rapid tip location confirmation.
The importance of the P wave:
Studies consistently show that interpretation of P wave changes is the most accurate and reliable way of determining both CVC tip location and accurate navigation of the line during the insertion procedure* PILOT TLS incorporates several real-time features designed to improve P wave interpretation thus assisting clinicians to achieve accurate navigation and tip location. These features are further enhanced by a clear and accurate ECG waveform at all stages of the insertion procedure allowing the clinician to be confident in using the system to interpret changes in the P wave.
Pilot is composed of PC tablet (TAB10) with pilot software, one ECG cable 4 derivations and one patient module.
Dimensions: 130 x 80 x 45 mm
Weight: 617 g
PILOT TLS is used as a support to the precise positioning of a Central Venous Catheter by measuring the maximum P wave (ECG method).
The intracavitary ECG method is based on evaluation of the P wave, which is highest at the sinoatrial node.
PILOT TLS TABLET displays the height of the P wave in real time, acquiring the ECG signal through the catheter used as an electrode. The operator will therefore be able to find the position of the catheter related to the maximum height of the P wave.
With PILOT TLS TABLET the catheter is used as an intracavitary electrode, replacing the yellow (left shoulder) and giving the advantage of continuously and simultaneously being able to observe the superficial ECG (second lead).
PILOT TLS TABLET is also able to detect biphasic P wave. In this case the central band will become orange.
PILOT TLS TABLET recognises every single QRS, calculates the isoelectric line of the complex and uses it to calculate the height of the P wave.
The unique features of PILOT TLS TABLET are:
1. Measurements in millivolt of the height of the P wave with definition from 0.062mV to 0.008mV per digit (default setting 0.031mV);
2. Displaying of the complex’s isoelectric line;
3. Detection of biphasic P wave;
4. Suitable for AFIB patients;
5. Possibility of recording procedures;
6. Possibility to determine the exact position of the Sinoatrial node.
