Vector-Medical Systems, based in the Sverdlovsk region, has produced the first batch of innovative electric cardiostimulators, the Sverdlovsk Region Innovation Center for Small and Medium Entrepreneurship reports.
The new device enables electric cardiac stimulation in three ways: transesophageal, endocardial and percutaneous. The latter method needs much less preparation time and does not require qualified medical personnel. Treatment efficiency can be assessed by analyzing two electrocardiogram leads on the screen. An in-built radiochannel block transmits an ECG and other data to a mini-printer in real time mode.
“In cardiology, medical assistance timing has always played a crucial role. Our device is mobile and can work either from an outlet or a battery. It can be used in different places: on a street, in a car, on rail, air, or water vehicles. The device is packed into a special bag so that it can be easily carried around or attached inside ambulance vehicles,” said Yury Kazantsev, director of Vector-Medical Systems.
The first electric cardiostimulators have recently been supplied to medical clinics in Perm, the Perm region, and the Leningrad region.
