It's not easy to make a 7Fr IABP that actually works
Unique 7Fr Design
By using proprietary manufacturing techniques, developed by TMP in Japan, Insightra Medical offers a 7Fr IAB catheter with 8Fr comparable inflation and deflation performance - no compromise. Through a unique combination of a patented low angle V shaped hub, thin yet strong wall construction and inner surfaces that allow for unhindered gas flow - the 7Fr Ultra IAB gives unrivaled performance in an amazingly small 7Fr catheter profile.
Full range of sizes
IAB catheter sizes and dimensions have been developed over may years. The ratio of length to diameter is a critical part of the fluid dynamics, augmentation and clinical support of IAB catheters. The 7Fr Ultra range uses tried and tested sizes that have been used with excellent results for over a decade. There is a delicate balance between getting the right diameter of the balloon and "over sizing" which could bring the balloon in constant contact with the delicate inner surface of the aorta. Insightra Medical offers a range of balloons to match patient height. It is the only full range of 7Fr catheters - with the specialty sizes of 30cc and below designed for patients that have the highest need of a 7Fr catheter - small patients.
The Insightra Medical 7Fr Ultra IAB Balloon catheter is designed and constructed in Japan by TMP - one of the most trusted names in IABP technology. The final product is kitted and assembled by hand in the United States. It is the only balloon on the market that undergoes our rigorous 100% inspection of each and every balloon combined with 100% benchtop testing in a specially constructed aortic simulator. Each and every balloon that is built is placed on a test rig and tested for performance for over 12 hours before it is packed and shipped. A combination of the highest standards of Japanese and American craftsmanship and quality control ensure an incredibly high quality of product.
In accordance with the regulatory bodies, Insightra Medical has provided both non-clinical and clinical test data to the FDA and CE bodies to ensure the safe combatibility of the 7Fr Ultra IAB with the most common pumping consoles on the market. This forms part of the complex approval process and Insightra Medical Inc holds all of the data on file.
