Arrhythmias, including atrial fibrillation, are very prevalent in the United States, and with the aging population, the number of cases is expected to increase. Electrophysiology (EP) studies are used to diagnose arrhythmias with the help of mapping catheters that record electrical activity in the heart and detect abnormal rhythms. Once the source of the arrhythmia is located, electrical or extreme temperature therapy can be applied through the catheter to eliminate the arrhythmia.
Nordson MEDICAL has extensive experience in the electrophysiology space, including developing catheters for mapping, diagnostics, and ablation & energy delivery. Our engineers can incorporate components including sensors and wire layout while maintaining catheter performance, such as controlling deflection for bending in a single plane with no curl or twist. Our component expertise includes engineered shafts, PET heat shrink, balloons, and molded components, and as an integrated, single-source supplier, we are able to design, develop, and manufacture devices under a single quality system.
