A fundamental redesign of fluid management technology developed by leading neurosurgeons, the IRRAflow system demonstrates a significant technological step forward compared to other currently available treatment options.
It´s transformational technology provides a controlled fluid exchange system that allows the neurosurgeon to actively manage intracranial pressure and CSF drainage.
Consists of a control unit and disposables (dual-lumen catheter and tube set) to offer four fully integrated and synchronized functions:
1. It is a fluid exchange system with an irrigation pump and drainage mechanism that interact with a dual lumen catheter to both supply and evacuate fluid from the body. The system is also synchronized to monitor local body cavity pressure within a preprogrammed range.
2. A monitoring and measuring system for intracranial pressure based on a method that uses a fluid column for accuracy and reliability.
3. Safety alarm that can be customized for each patient and is activated when the pressure is higher or lower than the preprogrammed range.
4. The programmable periodic flush irrigation prevents blockage of the catheter and associated surgical complications.
Irrigation + Aspiration
The IRRAflow system also employs an active irrigation and aspiration cycle to optimize the drainage process and patient outcomes. With its proprietary software ensuring a continuous cycle of automated flushing and gravity-driven drainage, the process of the evacuation of fluids, infection, and debris can be improved to reduce ICU and recovery time. At the same time, the patient’s intracranial pressure is consistently monitored and managed.
