Inca® Pressure-Volume (PV) Loop System

Over the years, CD Leycom’s initial clinical research device, the CFL-512 (Cardiac Function Laboratory), has enabled physicians to expose and quantify heart failure condition using PV loop hemodynamics. This achievement laid the foundation for the need to use PV loop hemodynamics for real-time clinical decision making for select cardiac interventions.

The Inca® Pressure-Volume (PV) Loop System can improve diagnosis, optimize therapy outcomes, and reduce complications in areas related to:

Inca® Pressure-Volume (PV) Loop System

When compared to its predecessor, the CFL-512, the Inca® PV Loop System is in a class of its own. The Inca® Pressure-Volume (PV) Loop System is a clinical diagnostic tool that provides real-time, beat-to-beat cardiac function and performance analytics. The main feature improvements include:

  • Indefinite PV loop monitoring and intra-ventricular dyssynchrony quantification
  • Real-time, operator independent analysis of up to 60 variables with user-defined displays
  • ‘Plug and play’ capability
  • Reduced physical “footprint” (i.e. Inca modules are roughly the size of a shoebox)
  • Seemless integration with CathLab or Operating Theater monitors

In short, the Inca PV Loop System is a “…state-of-the art” (Kitzman, Editorial: Circulation 2008) cardiac performance monitor that will provide clinicians with unprecedented insights into cardiac function on an intra-beat and beat-to-beat basis.
