proSA® Adjustment

The patented adjustment and verification instruments allow easy, fast and uncomplicated treatment at any location, without having to expose the patient to X-ray radiation. The unique "Active-Lock" mechanism protects the proSA against accidental re-adjustment by external magnetic fields.

Due to the wide range of opening pressures (0-20 cmH₂O) available on the proSA, there are numerous possible treatment options.

Furthermore the range of angular rotation for adjustment is 300°, ensuring excellent adjusting precision.

 

 

Recommendations for adjusting the proSA

Localisation

First, locate the proSA palpation. The proSA VERIFICATION COMPASS is an auxiliary instrument for locating the proSA.

As the proSA VERIFICATION COMPASS is held above the valve, the floating disc aligns over the adjustable unit of the proSA. The current opening pressure setting can be read from the compass scale.

Verification

Position the proSA VERIFICATION TOOL central on the valve. The marking and the readout display on the proSA VERIFICATION TOOL must be in line with the proximal (ventricular) catheter. Press the trigger button to see the actual opening pressure setting displayed on the readout.

Adjustment

Select the appropriate opening pressure on the proSA VERIFICATION TOOL.

Position the proSA VERIFICATION TOOL centrally over the valve. The marking and the readout display of the proSA VERIFICATION TOOL must be in line with the proximal (ventricular) catheter. Unlock the rotor ("Active-Lock") by applying mild pressure on the trigger button and then check the setting with the proSA VERIFICATION TOOL.
