Chartis Pulmonary Assessment System

Chartis Pulmonary Assessment System

Company: Pulmonx

Indicator: Emphysema

Product description: The Chartis System is a unique assessment tool that provides precise flow and pressure readings at the lobar or segmental level.

Mips Brain Protection System BPS

Mips Brain Protection System BPS

Company: Mips

Product description: In a helmet with MIPS Brain Protection System the shell and the liner are separated by a low friction layer. When a helmet with MIPS Brain Protection System is subjected to an angled impact, the low friction layer allows the helmet to slide relative to the head. The brain is surrounded by a low-friction cushion of cerebrospinal fluid that protects it by allowing it to slide slightly on impact. MIPS imitates the brain’s way of protecting itself by giving the helmet its own low-friction layer between the outer shell and the liner, which

also slides to absorb much of the energy created by an angled blow to the head.

Zephyr Endobronchial Valve

Zephyr Endobronchial Valve

Company: Pulmonx

Indicator: Emphysema

MoA: Endobronchial valve (EBV) therapy based on Chartis treatment planning is an effective, minimally invasive method developed by Pulmonx to manage hyperinflation.1 It is intended to predict and achieve reduction of volume in the diseased portion of the lung, without the risks and complications of surgery. EBV therapy involves an assessment of the patient’s hyperinflated lobes for the presence of collateral ventilation, or airflow within or between lobes of the lung, and then treating the patient by placing small, one-way valves in the targeted airways to direct the flow of air out of diseased portions of the lung. A typical procedure involves a Chartis assessment which typically takes about 5 minutes per lobe, and then placing three to four valves in the target lobe, which takes approximately 10 to 30 minutes to complete.

CE mark received: Zephyr® Endobronchial Valve 2003

Once positioned in the target bronchus, an actuator button on the catheter retracts the sheath, allowing the Zephyr® valve to expand against the bronchial wall. A typical procedure involves placing approximately three to four valves to isolate the target lobe, and takes approximately 10 to 30 minutes to complete.
