ACTs TEMPASURE cardiac ablation catheter receives CE Mark Advanced Cardiac Therapeutics.

ACT’s TEMPASURE cardiac ablation catheter receives CE Mark Advanced Cardiac Therapeutics, Inc. The TEMPASURE system may be the world’s initial RF cardiac ablation catheter to provide both saline irrigation and temperature-sensing technology. The system’s novel passive sensing microwave radiometry technology enables the electrophysiologist to gauge the temp of cardiac tissue through the ablation procedure, offering real-time information that allows proper energy lesion and delivery control. This technology is made to allow, for the very first time, safe and effective automated RF power titration or ‘Temperature Mode’ irrigated ablation.Anytime you’re going to need a surgery or a transplant, you’re going to want effective antibiotics. It’s something that affects most of us, Laxminarayan said. Concern over antibiotic-resistant bacteria is growing. Earlier this year, the Obama administration released a national actions intend to combat antibiotic resistance. Also, the superbug MRSA was in the news this week after causing a significant infection in the ankle of New York Giants tight end Daniel Fells, prompting speculation a foot might be needed by the NFL player amputation. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Avoidance estimates that at least 2 million people a year become contaminated by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and at least 23,000 die from these infections. But many of these worries focus on the ability to treat existing bacterial infections, and disregard the widespread use of antibiotics to prevent infections after chemotherapy or medical operation, said Dr.
