Product Lysus¿ Infusion System - PT-3 Control . The Lysus Infusion System employs high frequency (2-2.5 MHz), low power (0.45 watt average power per transducer) ultrasound to facilitate the delivery of physician-specified fluids in the peripheral vasculature. (This system is also called the UltraFlo and EKOS Peripheral Infusion System in internal documents.)

The Lysus¿ Infusion System consists of three main components, a single use Lysus¿ Infusion Catheter System which is comprised of a Drug Delivery Catheter (DDC) and removable Ultrasound Core (USC), and a reusable EKOS PT-3 Control System. During use, fluids are delivered through the side-holes of the DDC. The USC is placed through the central lumen of the DDC to deliver ultrasound energy along the length of fluid delivery, dispersing the fluid into the intravascular treatment site. The reusable EKOS PT-3 Control Unit provides power to the system and the user interface for operator control. A reusable, non-sterile Catheter Interface Cable with Pod connects the EKOS PT-3 Control Unit to the Lysus¿ Infusion Catheter System.
