“The Cool Point pump is part of a fully integrated system that has been designed for easy set up and seamless operation with our latest cardiac ablation generator and our growing family of Therapy Cool Path open-irrigated catheters,” said Jane J. Song, president of the St. Jude Medical Atrial Fibrillation Division. “By introducing the Cool Point Irrigation Pump, we provide plug-and-play connectivity with the lab’s existing St. Jude Medical equipment.”

Cool Point Irrigation Pump’s monitoring and safety features provides physicians more control over therapy delivery. This helps physicians in monitoring the total volume of irrigation solution delivered through an easy-to-read display.

In-line occlusion detector monitors flow pressure between the pump and the catheter tip. It provides an alert if flow pressure increases to a large extent relative to the flow rate. Bubbles which are as small as two microliters are detected by redundant bubble detectors of the pump. Bubbles in the bloodstream cause embolism or stroke.
