Frequently asked questions

Do Philips cardio solutions address X-ray dose?

Yes, for both patients and staff. In structural heart disease procedures like LAA occlusion, for example, there is a 52% reduction in radiation dose when using EchoNavigator5.  And the Philips Azurion has been shown to cut procedure time by an average of 17%1, which means less X-ray exposure. Philips also offers proven dose-reduction solutions like DoseWise, Zero Dose Positioning, ClarityIQ, the enhanced MRC200+ X-ray tube and CardiacSwing.

What about ease of use?

“It is a solution designed by clinical experts for clinical experts. Really everything about the user interface has been changed and improved. I have never seen anything like it in the marketplace before.” Barry T. Katzen, MD, Chief Medical Executive, Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute, Florida, USA.

Many share this view. 96% of participants in a user test  were satisfied with the Azurion’s ease of use, while 76% of staff6  felt more confident in making treatment decisions because they felt in control of measurements and applications. In particular, the combination of IntraSight and Azurion provides an unmatched level of diagnostic insight and intuitive tableside control that enables clinicians to provide cardiac patients with superior care.

Can Azurion be used together with third-party equipment?

Yes, provided there is no adverse effect on the intended use, essential performance, safety or effectiveness of either system. Typical third-party equipment used with the Azurion includes injectors, video feeds, multi switches, intercoms, pedestals and equipment racks.

What about issues such as sustainability and uptime?

The Azurion has been developed with energy efficiency in mind and is expected to use at least 10% less energy over its lifespan than its predecessor7.  Our maintenance services are synonymous with fast response times, and an uptime guarantee of up to 97-98%8.  And you can reduce maintenance costs through our Technology Maximizer program and routine upgrade.

[2] Independent survey performed between July and December 2022. The survey involved 38 participants – technologists, nurses and physicians – from 6 countries. Questions were asked to participants with relevant experience of both a Philips Integrated Coronary Suite (combination of Azurion, IntraSight and Philips Hemo, Eagle Eye, Refinity and OmniWire) and a multi-vendor coronary cath lab.

[6] These results were obtained during an independent survey performed between July and December 2022. The survey involved 38 participants from 6 countries spread over technologist, nurses and physicians. Questions were asked to participants that had relevant working experience in both a Philips Integrated Coronary Suite (combination of Azurion, IntraSight and Philips Hemo, Eagle Eye, Refinity and OmniWire) and a multi-vendor coronary cath lab (A multi-vendor lab is a cath lab where the equipment needed to perform the procedures is not supplied by a single vendor). The main objective was to evaluate the benefits of a Philips Integrated Coronary Suite compared to a multi-vendor lab.
