ACIST CVi®: Reference 02

Saving time, saving money: A time and motion study with contrast management systems. Lehmann C, Hotaling M. Journal of Invasive Cardiology 2005 Feb;17(2):118-121.

Data was collected from five catheterization labs over a two day period from nonrandomized patients undergoing routine diagnostic catheterization by manual techniques (n=53) or by the variable-rate, automated ACIST system (n=90). Equipment setup time, contrast waste disposal and arterial time for each test condition were recorded. Procedure workflow was more efficient and contrast media waste was significantly less in the catheterization labs using the ACIST system.
