Patient Monitoring during Anesthesia
For early and efficient treatment of perioperative hypotension, a continuous monitoring of blood pressure is mandatory:
- the upper arm blood pressure cuff (NBP) is the monitoring standard in more than 82% of all surgical procedures but provides intermittent blood pressure only
- the painful and costly intra-arterial measurement, which allows continuous readings, is only indicated for 18% of interventions.
An easy-to-use, noninvasive solution for the real-time measurement of arterial pressure and other hemodynamic parameters has been desired by physicians for decades.
Furthermore, goal directed fluid management has been shown to improve positive outcome of patients in high- and moderate risk surgeries:
- Today, fluid management in the operating room, ICU and IMC settings is limited to high risk surgeries using invasive arterial lines or highly invasive and expensive catheter sets
CNAP® PPV offers a unique combination of noninvasive blood pressure and a dynamic fluid parameter (PPV) allowing for cost-effective fluid management and easy therapy control beyond high-risk, arterial line or Doppler-monitored surgeries.
- Comfort for patients: noninvasive, thus safe monitoring, whilst avoiding the risks of infection of invasive arterial lines
- Easy to use: quick and error-free application for everyday use with minimal training required
- Time and cost saving: fixed start-up-time of 90 seconds combined with reusable sensors
- noninvasive, reliable measurement where invasive arterial lines are not indicated.
