“I would like to express my strong endorsement of the CATHPAX®. Prior to using it my radiation exposure was so high from doing all the AF procedures in my hospital, that radiation safety wanted me to stop performing procedures. The CATHPAX® has totally changed everything. Radiation safety tested it and was astonished at the virtual abolition of radiation exposure. I use it on all my AF procedure and any procedure for which I might receive too high a radiation dose.”

“Use of a novel radiation protection cabin (RPC) during catheter ablation procedures obviates the need for lead protective apparel… … With use of the CATHPAX®, catheter ablation can be performed comfortably with insignificant exposure rendering lead apparel superfluous.”

“This innovation has been too long in the coming. It is a must for long ablation procedures.”

CATHPAX® has become one of the most necessary devices in my lab, especially when performing complicated cases such as Atrial fibrillation ablations and substrate-guided ventricular tachycardia ablations, where a longer procedure time is usually required.

From the whole body protection point of view, CATHPAX® provides enhanced protection by covering the entire body (from top of the head down to the toes), compared to the use of conventional lead aprons during catheter ablation procedures.

White blood cell count are normalized and my neck pain improved when using CATHPAX® compared to the use of the heavy lead aprons.”

“The cabin has changed my life as an electrophysiologist: it takes away all my concerns that I might harm my own health and the future of my dependants while taking care of patients. The absolute free- dom from any radiation makes that I can fully enjoy doing my job, even when it requires longer procedure durations and/or ablations in obese patients. This of course does not negate our mandate to lower radiation risks for the patients themselves. I can do all ablation procedures, and all aspects of these procedures (like transseptal punctures or exchange of such sheaths over long guidewires), from within the cabin. All my co-workers are obliged to work with the cabin ; the height can easily be adjusted.”

“The use of the CATHPAX® cabin turned out to be one of the most important achievements in my daily EP practice as far as radioprotection is concerned. The cabin is no hindrance at all for handling the catheters and the view to the monitors. Moreover, I think there is a positive effect on the outcome of the procedure if you are able to stay physically and mentally relaxed particularly during long lasting or complex ablations.”
