Smart. Innovation. The monitoring platform of the future.

HemoSphere advanced monitoring platform helps you stay ahead of critical moments. For individualised patient management across a diversity of patient profiles and care settings, HemoSphere advanced monitoring platform offers compatibility with a range of sensors and catheters: ForeSight Elite tissue oximetry sensor, Acumen IQ sensor, FloTrac sensor, Swan-Ganz pulmonary artery catheter, and Edwards oximetry central venous catheter.

Available with Acumen Hypotension Prediction Index (HPI) software, this first-of-its-kind predictive decision support software detects the likelihood of a patient trending towards a hypotensive event* before the event occurs, and provides you with insights to understand the root cause and inform a potential course of action for your patient.

* A hypotensive event is defined as mean arterial pressure (MAP) <65 mmHg for at least one minute
Choice for individualised patient care

HemoSphere advanced monitoring platform offers an enhanced visual monitoring experience with enhanced screen clarity, intuitive navigation, and responsive touch for intelligent decision support and individualised patient care.

Modular design

Modular design

Enables you to choose the haemodynamic monitoring solution, module and / or cable to meet your clinical needs.

Quick zero from cable

Quick zero from cable

To zero the pressure cable you can touch the Zero & Waveform icon located on the navigation bar or press the physical zero button directly on the pressure cable.

Hot swappable battery

Hot swappable battery

Enables monitoring to be resumed during and after transfer between clinical environments.

Proactive patient insights for smart recovery

Advanced haemodynamic parameters help guide proactive decision making in a range of clinical situations and settings so you can maintain optimal patient perfusion.

Cerebral desaturations icon

Cerebral desaturations

Research demonstrates that cerebral desaturations have been associated with post-operative neurocognitive disorders, increased ICU and hospital length of stay, increased incidence of stroke, and decreased survival1-3. HemoSphere advanced monitoring platform provides a comprehensive picture of oxygen delivery and consumption to manage moderate- to high-risk patients.2,3

Sepsis management icon

Sepsis management

Severe sepsis and septic shock are among the most important causes of morbidity and mortality in patients admitted to the intensive care unit.5 Access to cardiac output (CO) and stroke volume (SV) enables early detection and management of sepsis which is critical to improving survival rates and reducing the economic burden of sepsis.6

Hypotension icon


Recent studies show associations between intraoperative hypotension (IOH) and increased risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) and myocardial injury — the leading cause of post-operative mortality within 30 days after surgery.4 Early detection of hypotension by continuous haemodynamic monitoring can reduce a patient’s risk.4

Hemodynamic instability icon

haemodynamic instability

HemoSphere advanced monitoring platform enables access to continuous pressure and flow parameters, helping to determine patient fluid responsiveness and guide individualised fluid management targets. Proactive monitoring of stroke volume (SV) and stroke volume variation (SVV) have been shown to effectively optimise patient fluid resuscitation and guide proper fluid administration.7
