Medical Visions Double® Pump RF is the latest addition to the family of Double® Pumps and is today the most advanced and high-tech arthroscopy pump on the market. The reason for using a pump and the whole idea with fluid management during an arthroscopic procedure is to: - Keep the joint distended through pressurization and expansion of the operating field - Compress damaged blood vessels to maintain hemostasis through increased pressure - Maintain visibility by flushing the operating field in a controlled way Double® Pump RF has, as the only pump on the market, the ability to communicate with an RF generator, allowing optimal pressure and flow settings during ablation in the joint. A possible effect when using an RF Probe is temperature increase and inconsistent flow. With Double® Pump RF the suction from the RF probe can be adjusted on the pump to avoid unnecessary flame-outs and to control the temperature level. Double® Pump RF controls both the in- and out-flow and consequently both pressure and flow. The pump operates through usage of disposable tubings or cassettes, one that controls the in-flow (Day Cassette, used for one surgical day) and one that controls the out-flow (Patient Cassette, new for every patient). The key advantages of using Double® Pump are: - The patented SmartVision® function - Compatibility with RF systems? - Compatibility with with most of the shaver systems on the market - Calculation of the true pressure in the joint (true IAP) - The easy-to-use Cassette technique - The Outflow Tracking™ function ?
- Application: : for arthroscopy
