The   3000 System is the only non-contact electrophysiology mapping system.

How does the system work?
The non-contact mapping system consists of a catheter and a powerful computer. The non-contact catheter, which has many sensing electrodes, is put in a stationary location —often in the center of the heart chamber. The catheter acts like a miniature radio antenna, receiving signals from all around the heart chamber and relaying them to the computer. The computer processes the signals and displays the recorded information on a three-dimensional map of the heart chamber.

What does non-contact mapping mean for you?
The cause of an arrhythmia is often complex and may come from more than a single location in the heart. With the non-contact mapping system your doctor can quickly create a computerized model of your heart and record its electrical activation. This three-dimensional model shows your doctor the source of your arrhythmia.

If your doctor chooses to perform a catheter ablation, the non-contact system guides a therapeutic catheter to the arrhythmia source.

The key to choosing the best available treatment is to understand what has caused your arrhythmia. With the right information, your doctor can select the most appropriate treatment option. The non-contact mapping system assists your doctor with this process, offering fast, effective technology to locate the source of complex arrhythmias.

If you have any questions about the non-contact mapping system, ask your doctor or nurse.
