Decide, Guide, Treat, and Confirm: Optimizing Coronary Medical Procedures
At the point of decision, Philips’ physiology and imaging devices, such as the Philips IntraSight, help HCPs decide which patients need treatment, as well as the most appropriate therapy for them. By making the right decision from the beginning, HCPs are able to streamline and optimize the medical process, thereby ensuring a smooth and efficient procedure.
Applications such as Dynamic Coronary Roadmap helps HCPs guide the patients’ treatment with Philips’ coronary imaging catheters providing more data to ensure precision in making lesions. Azurion’s 12-inch detectors’ high-resolution imaging over a large field-of-view (FOV) helps HCPs visualize the entire coronary tree in a single view with same full projection flexibility9. It is crucial especially during this time of patient influx for HCPs to minimize errors in medical procedures in order to deliver the best patient care.
During treatment, Philips’ devices such as Refinity and the ELCA coronary laser atherectomy catheter ensure a user-friendly experience for healthcare practitioners as these solutions help them cross, prepare, and treat even with the most complex cases. Philips is the only company that can do digital and rotational IVUS10. With specialized technologies that are easy to use, medical workers are able to effectively and efficiently improve their workflow processes.
Finally, the physiology data from Philips IGT solutions such as IVUS help confirm the effectiveness of the treatment in creating potentials for the best patient outcomes. When given the most effective and personalized treatment, patients will be able to recover and have a good quality of life after7.
Providing the best care for CVD patients through IGT solutions
As many Filipinos continue to struggle with CVD, it is important for our healthcare systems to provide them with the care that they need. The primary objective of every healthcare professional or institution is to get patients back to living their regular lives. At Philips, the purpose of its IGT cardiovascular solutions is to help them achieve that objective – quicker8.
“We are very passionate about continuously innovating in order to make our work meaningful and helpful for everyone. This World Heart Day, as we unite to battle against CVD and other health risks, we aim to work together to treat every patient like family in order to ensure that they will not only recover, but to ensure that they get the best quality of life,” said Ashwin Chari, country manager, Philips Philippines, Inc.
