INVOS Cerebral/Somatic Oximeter Monitors Reduced Blood Flow to the Brain

 

April 17, 2009

The FDA expanded the labeling for the Somanetics Corp. INVOS Cerebral/Somatic Oximeter to improved patient outcomes after surgery when the INVOS System is used to manage therapies in patients above 2.5 kilograms (kg) at risk for reduced or absent blood flow.

Its indications for use now reflect the INVOS System's ability to generate accurate real-time measurements of blood oxygen saturation in this same patient population, in addition to its previous clearance as a trend monitor in any individual.
The INVOS (In Vivo Optical Spectroscopy) Cerebral/Somatic Oximeter noninvasively monitors site-specific blood oxygen levels to help surgical and critical care teams protect their patients against brain and vital organ area damage, or even death
