Reminder of the state of the art TCAI medical center that opened in June - world class International training center led by Dr's PR confirms he is speaking at big Afib conference new technology section after using PURE EP since Nov..

I've updated some of the previous comments and now have some actual quotes from Dr Natale's (from TCAI considered a top 3 ablation surgeon in the world and #1 Ablation/Afib influencer in the US) presentation at the AF 2020 Symposium in Washington DC Jan 23.

o “all of us struggle with signal quality and noise every day and don’t think we realize how much of the original signals are filtered and modified by current technology in the lab today.”

o “The Pure EP system provides a low noise proprietary architecture, wider dynamic range of signal filtering, larger frequency bandwidth, linear signal acquisition, and modular design”

o “what you see here is the bench study to the GE System… clearly you see the much bigger bottle of information the PURE EP can acquire”

o “if you look here and compare the PURE signals side by side with a conventional system, you can see PURE signals much larger. If you look at the ablation, you can see a big difference, especially in the paroxysmal”

o “if you look here, this is post cardioversion, PURE has a much faster recovery to see the intracardiac signals which is important especially when you do 3D mapping”

o “the difference is much more visible in a patient coming with atypical flutter and flat ablation”
 EP professionals at HRS consider him one of the top 3 AFib/Ablation experts in the world and the #1 influencer in the US Cardiac EP space....

Cardiac Vascular News - Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute at St. David’s Medical Center opening new Electrophysiology Center

Home of BioSig's First in Human Testing and Dr Natale who is representing BioSig at AF Symposium discussing newest technology in front of thousands. TCAI continue to do the second wave of human ablation procedures with the newest PURE EP system this Q419 and participated in the recently completed human clinical trial that I believe will be presented at the HRS meeting in San Diego in May


Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute at St. David’s Medical Center opening new Electrophysiology Center

Shared by Ken Dropiewski on
AUSTIN, Texas, June 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute (TCAI) at St. David’s Medical Center is opening a new, state-of-the-art Electrophysiology Center dedicated to treating patients with cardiac arrhythmias. The new Electrophysiology Center is set to open at the end of the month.

“This expansion at the Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute is essential to helping us continue to meet the needs of our community,” David Huffstutler, president and chief executive officer of St. David’s HealthCare, said. “It will also provide additional capacity to care for a growing number of patients coming here from across the nation—and around the globe.”

“Since TCAI launched more than a decade ago, the need for specialized cardiac care for patients with rhythm disorders has increased tremendously,” Andrea Natale, M.D., F.A.C.C., F.H.R.S., F.E.S.C., cardiac electrophysiologist, executive medical director at TCAI and national medical director of cardiac electrophysiology for HCA Healthcare, said. “The newly expanded space will allow us to better serve our patients who come from all across North America, in addition to a growing number of people traveling to Austin from Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East seeking care at TCAI.”

The new 72,000-square-foot center includes six electrophysiology labs, equipped with state-of-the-art technology for the treatment of complex arrhythmias; 12 dedicated beds for pre-procedure preparation; eight beds for post-procedure recovery; 20 private patient rooms; and, four private patient suites with adjoining family suites.

“We are committed to providing the highest level of care for patients with cardiac arrhythmias,” Todd Steward, chief executive officer of St. David’s Medical Center, said. “The expanded space also features an international training center, which will allow TCAI to continue to share with physicians around the world the latest advances in interventional cardiac electrophysiology, improving outcomes for patients worldwide.”

TCAI’s team of 16 world-renowned physicians is one of the largest electrophysiology practices in the U.S., providing unparalleled experience, expertise and exceptional care. With this incomparable combination, TCAI successfully treats thousands of patients each year, restoring their quality of life.

Reminder of Dr Natalie comments on the PURE EP system

o Dr Andrea Natale, FACC, FHRS, FESC, Executive Medical Director, Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute at St. David’s Medical Center – Dr Natale is one of the top ablation surgeons (some say the top) and AFib experts and Key Opinion Leaders in the world with a wide following. He performed the First In Human ablation procedures a few months ago in February and said this…. “With the use of the PURE EP System I was able to identify cardiac signals which were previously undetectable to me. I believe that the PURE EP System could change diagnostic and treatment strategies of arrhythmias, leading to more successful outcomes”. While at HRS Dr Natale praised the PURE EP system and his opinion was that eventually over time every EP center in the country should have this machine to assist in ablation procedures. He will help make this happen

- TCAI had done 7 human ablations in Feb – the company showed the actual signal enhancements vs non-PURE EP signals to over 50 EP doctors who were universally blown away. This was so visually obvious it was even impactful than some summarized data of 7 cases. (Should be noted TCAI was so stunned by the improvement vs standard cardio mapping that they enhanced the BSGM relationship, have been since November performing human ablation procedures with PURE EP (my guess is over 50 more successful ablations with better signaling since Nov) and now Dr Natale who was so impressed is about to represent not TCAI but Biosig at the AFIB 2020 meeting Jan 23 (I hear 7000+ attend that conf). He also for the first time is making PURE EP and BioSig part of the important EP LIVE session in a few months.

Getting TCAI to do another series of human ablation procedures, participate in the trial prior to one of the top ablation experts in the field appearing at the following conferences is infinitely more important IMO...

o January 23-25, 2020 - 25th Annual International AF Symposium

This intensive three-day symposium brings together the world's leading medical scientists to share in a highly interactive environment the most recent advances in the field of atrial fibrillation.

Notice who is representing BioSig in the Kickoff session:

8:10-10 AM SPOTLIGHT SESSION: Early Stage and Emerging New Technologies and Drugs in Cardiac EP

Chair: Jeremy Ruskin, MD


Ablacon, Vivek Reddy, MD
Acesion Pharma, A. John Camm, MD
BioSig Technologies , Andrea Natale, MD

(See previous post for full list)

Dr Natalie is in the middle of weeks more human ablation procedures including being part of the clinical trial which I believe is completed successfully - now he is talking BioSig - some consider him the number one influencer in the AFib Ablation field.....what happens when he praises PURE EP after using it extensively for a couple of months.

o April 2-3, 2020 PURE EP LIVE AUSTIN. (TCAI - Dr Natale's home base)
