The Angel Catheter is a Nitinol, Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filter, permanently attached to a central venous catheter (CVC) for the use of preventing Pulmonary Embolism (PE) in critically ill patients.

Chairing the symposium will be Dr. Max Jonas, Consultant Anesthetist and Intensivist at Southampton University Hospital in Southampton, UK. Speaking at the lunch symposium will be Dr. Andy Eynon, Director of Major Trauma & Neuro Intensive Care Consultant at Southampton University Hospital in Southampton, UK, and BiO2 Medical's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Luis Angel, inventor of the Angel Catheter and Associate Professor of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Texas.

According to Christopher E. Banas, BiO2 Medical's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, "This represents an important milestone for BiO2 Medical and the commercialization of the Angel Catheter.
