Radiation Protection Cabin

CATHPAX EP product sheet.pdf

EP physicians are facing a high radiation dose due to the growing number and duration of electrophysiological studies and ablations. Additionally wearing heavy lead aprons frequently and day long can cause orthopedic problems.⁴

Work save, relaxed and fast

  • Complete radiation protection

  • No lead apron necessary1
  • No change of working practices5
  • Same procedural duration1,2
