St Jude Medical, a global medical device company, has launched several new products that provide physicians and hospitals with the opportunity for improved efficiency and information connectivity in the electrophysiology (EP) lab.

The EnSite Connect Remote Support feature, EnSite Courier Module, EnSite Velocity v2.0 Software and recently launched EnSite Derexi Module are advanced technologies that allow a streamlined workflow within the EP lab.

The new product offerings from St Jude Medical allow for a simplified diagnostic and treatment process, added safety and the potential for reduced treatment time for the patient.

The EnSite Velocity v.2.0 software is designed to help physicians more efficiently diagnose and guide therapy to treat abnormal heart rhythms, the company said.

The EnSite Connect remote support improves lab efficiency by providing live, real-time viewing of the EnSite Velocity System screen by knowledgeable support staff.

The EnSite Courier Module imports cardiac information and provides efficient networking of cardiac images such as MR, CT and 3-D rotational angiography.

The EnSite Derexi Module contributes to the overall connectivity of the EP lab by providing improved efficiency and workflow, enabling communication between the EnSite Velocity Cardiac Mapping System and the EP-Workmate Recording System.

St Jude Medical Atrial Fibrillation Division president Jane Song said improving procedural workflow is an important way to help improve efficiency and manage the cost of delivering care.

"Our streamlined EP Lab offerings provide advanced technologies that optimize interconnectedness and continue to move St Jude Medical toward our ultimate goal of providing hospitals with fully integrated and networked EP labs," Song said.
