Noninvasive patient monitoring studies presented in Stockholm

Clinical studies evaluating Masimo's (MASI +1%) noninvasive patient monitoring technologies were presented at the Euroanaethesia Congress in Sweden.

At University Hospital Linkoping, researchers find that the fluid volume optimization capability of Masimo's Pleth Variability Index (PVI) compared to Stroke Volume Optimization using Esophageal Doppler (ED), an established method to optimize preload during abdominal surgery, is similar.

At CHU Brugmann, researchers find that employing PVI in laparoscopic surgery to predict intraoperative fluid management does not differ significantly from conventional pulse pressure variation induced by mechanical ventilation (PPV).

At Citta di Roma Hospital, researchers find that the company's Total Hemoglobin (SpHb) Monitoring was able to detect changes in hemoglobin concentration during and after child delivery that may provide a means for the early detection of bleeding and postpartum hemorrhage without the need to use an invasive device.

At Tokyo Dental College Ichikawa General Hospital, researchers find that the accuracy of SpHb monitoring during prolonged oral surgery was clinically acceptable compared with laboratory CO-Oximetry measurements of total hemoglobin.
