  • Descripción del producto
    Dolphin Inflation Device, REF 0185NA. Rx only, Sterilized using Ethylene Oxide. || DOLPHIN is a single-use, sterile inflation device used in cardiovascular procedures to pressurize (inflate) and depressurize (deflate) balloon catheters. The device itself consists of two components - the inflation device and large volume syringe (30 cc). || The manually operation of the DOLPHIN is achieved by the manipulation of a large handle to drive a piston housed within the body of the device. Careful and controlled inflation is achieved by rotating the handle clockwise. During inflation a unique cam locking mechanism maintains pressure even if the user lets go of the device. || Instantaneous deflation, regardless of balloon size, is made possible by the release of the dual locks located on device as well as a large, 30 cc syringe that is sold with each Dolphin Inflation Device. || All the while during inflation or deflation pressure is displayed and can be monitored on a large analog gauge mounted on top of the device.
