Centurion Medical Products Acquires Mirador Biomedical

Centurion Medical Products has recently acquired Mirador Biomedical of Seattle, Washington.

With the addition of Mirador Biomedical, Centurion continues its commitment to providing innovative products that promote more efficient procedures, better patient care, and improved financial results.

Mirador is the inventor and manufacturer of the Compass family of medical devices. Compass devices are designed to provide quantitative pressure measurements during various critical medical procedures. These innovative, inexpensive single-use electronic devices provide instant physiological feedback on an incorporated digital display. The convenience and simplicity of the devices enable doctors to quickly and conveniently assess pressures without additional cabling, connections, or assistance. Compass has numerous clinical applications: central line insertion, central venous pressure monitoring, lumbar puncture opening pressure, pleural manometry, and compartment pressure measurement. Instant physiological pressure measurements can dramatically reduce the risk of severe complications like compartment syndrome and inadvertent arterial cannulation.

Centurion Medical Products President & CEO, Tom Archipley stated, “The acquisition of Mirador gives us the opportunity to add the Compass to our long list of unique products like SorbaView SHIELD®, ECO EME-BAG™, and CVC Zone Bundles.” He continues, “It also supports the future we envisioned when we changed our name from Tri-State Hospital Supply to Centurion Medical Products. That future includes building on our 50 year history of innovation by bringing even more advanced clinical solutions to our customers. The Compass is the sort of cutting edge technology that improves outcomes and furthers that vision.”
