Noninvasive Cardiovascular Monitor Combines Blood Pressure, Hemoglobin Measurements

 

November 22, 2010

The ccNexfin, by BMEYE B.V., is a noninvasive cardiovascular monitor with blood pressure and cardiac output measurements. It combines the company’s noninvasive technology with Masimo rainbow SET Pulse CO-Oximetry for continuous hemoglobin and oxygen saturation monitoring.

The device provides real-time, beat-to-beat measurements of cardiac, circulatory and pulmonary parameters, which could help clinicians detect impending cardiovascular events. It utilizes a finger cuff to capture and continuously measure blood pressure, mean arterial pressure, cardiac output, stroke volume, systemic vascular resistance and derivative of pressure. The sensor also measures hemoglobin, oxygen saturation, oxygen content and perfusion index.

This detailed data allows clinicians to predict and proactively address the early signs of hemodynamic instability during critical situations rather than reacting to late indicators and their effects.
