Circa Scientific reports that the 3-year agreement with Premier, enables Premier’s participating healthcare members to take advantage of enhanced savings on CIRCA Scientific’s advance temperature monitoring products.

Accurately monitoring the temperature of the esophagus is an important component of complex cardiac ablation procedures. The company’s S-CATH Esophageal Temperature Monitoring System enhances esophageal temperature monitoring with multi-point temperature sensing featuring an array of 12 fast-response temperature sensors on a soft, flexible, self-expanding probe, which conforms to the shape of the esophagus, providing maximum esophageal coverage.  Independent studies have demonstrated that the S-CATH provides temperature information more quickly and more accurately than conventional temperature probes.

Lee Geist, President and CEO of CIRCA Scientific said, “Avoiding extreme esophageal temperatures during therapeutic procedures is a critical factor in avoiding severe complications during electrophysiology procedures.  The S-Cath’s ability to provide temperature data significantly faster than other devices has established CIRCA as the market leader in advanced temperature monitoring.” He concluded, “We are grateful to Premier for recognizing CIRCA’s key role in this field and we are proud to have been awarded this three-year contract.  We look forward to working with Premier to bring CIRCA’s advanced esophageal temperature monitoring products along with negotiated contract savings to their members and clinicians.”
