The SensiTherm Multi Esophageal Monitoring System provides critical information necessary to adapt therapy where needed, enabling the physician to monitor temperatures in the esophagus between 0° C and 75° C. The SensiTherm Multi Monitor provides advance notice for hot and cold temperature thresholds with programmable temperature and cooling rate alarms, and immediate feedback regarding patient status with intuitive, color changing temperature displays.
All 7 temperature sensors of the SensiTherm Multi Probe are visible on impedance and magnetic-based 3D mapping systems
Rapid-response temperature readings on each electrode updated in real time during procedures
The SensiTherm Multi Probe 7 electrode configuration has a wider area of coverage than single-sensor probes
CAUTION: This product is intended for use by or under the direction of a physician. Prior to use, reference the Instructions for Use, inside the product carton (when available) or at manuals.sjm.com or eifu.abbottvascular.com for more detailed information on Indications, Contraindications, Warnings, Precautions and Adverse Events.
The SensiTherm Multi Esophageal Monitoring System is composed of SensiTherm Multi Monitor and SensiTherm Multi Probe and is intended for the continuous detection, measurement and visualization (in °C) of esophageal temperature. The intended environments of use are operating rooms and interventional electrophysiology rooms. The SensiTherm Multi Probe must be used in conjunction with the SensiTherm Multi Monitor. The role of esophageal temperature monitoring using this device in reducing the risk of cardiac ablation related esophageal injury has not been established. The performance of the SensiTherm Multi system in detecting esophageal temperature changes as a result of energy delivery during cardiac ablation procedures has not been evaluated.
The insertion of the SensiTherm Multi Probe in the esophagus is not recommended if the esophagus is deformed or irritated. There are no specific contraindications or side effects related to the use of SensiTherm Multi Monitor. However, the insertion of the probe by an unskilled operator can cause discomfort and slight abrasions to the patient. To avoid that risk, it is essential that SensiTherm Multi Monitor is used only by medical personnel.
Thermal stabilization: The technology used by SensiTherm Multi Monitor for the metering process requires that the handle of the probe and that of the patient cable are approximately at the same temperature. Hence, it is recommended to wait at least 15 minutes between the instant in which the components are brought in the working environment and the start of a measurement session, especially if the probe or the patient cable have long stationed in environments with temperature and/or humidity significantly different from those of use. It is recommended not to place the two handles in such a way that during the measurements only one of the two objects remains for a prolonged time in proximity to or in contact with a heat or cold source. Failure to observe these precautions can lead to an accuracy of the instrument lower than the one stated in the technical specifications. MR Unsafe: Due to the presence of metallic parts in the components of SensiTherm® Multi Monitor, the device and its accessories must never be kept inside or in close proximity to a patient who is about to undergo magnetic resonance imaging. For the full list of warnings and precautions, please refer to the applicable Instructions for Use.
