Acumen Hypotension Prediction Index (HPI) software is a first-of-its-kind technology that detects hemodynamic instability.

Studies have shown Acumen HPI software:

Demonstrated a 57% reduction in duration of interaoperative hypotension*1

*Prospective, single-arm multicenter study in noncardiac surgical patients requiring arterial line monitoring compared to a historical control.

Demonstrates accuracy to predict the likelihood of hypotension.2

Demonstrates superior predictive abilities for hypotension over common hemodynamic parameters such as cardiac output (CO), stroke volume (SV), and changes in mean arterial pressure (MAP).3

**A hypotensive event is defined as MAP <65 mmHg for a duration of at least one minute.

Clinical evidence

2020 Wijnberge, et al.

Publication in JAMA: “Effect of a Machine Learning–Derived Early Warning System for Intraoperative Hypotension vs Standard Care on Depth and Duration of Intraoperative Hypotension During Elective Noncardiac Surgery: The HYPE Randomized Clinical Trial"†

This study demonstrated that Acumen HPI software combined with a treatment protocol achieved statistically significant reduction in hypotension vs. standard of care.

Elective, noncardiac surgery patients monitored with Acumen HPI had a median time of hypotension per patient of 8 minutes compared to 32.7 minutes in the control group.

Time-weighted average of hypotension combines the duration and the severity of hypotension corrected for the total duration of the procedure. With Acumen HPI, the study showed a median .38 mm Hg (95% CL) difference between the interventional and control group.4

2019 Schneck, et al.

Publication in the Journal of Clinical Monitoring and Computing: "Hypotension Prediction Index based protocolized haemodynamic management reduces the incidence and duration of intraoperative hypotension in primary total hip arthroplasty: a single centre feasibility randomised blinded prospective interventional trial"†

In this single center feasibility study, Acumen HPI software combined with protocolized treatment was shown to reduce the relative and absolute duration of hypotension in total hip arthroplasty patients, in comparison to a historical and prospective control group.5

2019 Davies, et al.

Publication in Anesthesia and Analgesia: "Ability of an Arterial Waveform Analysis–Derived Hypotension Prediction Index to Predict Future Hypotensive Events in Surgical Patients"†

In this 255 patient, 2-center retrospective analysis study, when compared with hemodynamic parameters such as SV, CO, SVV, and MAP, Acumen HPI software showed a higher predictive performance at 5 and 10 minutes before hypotension.3

2018 Hatib, et al.

Publication in Anesthesiology: "Machine-learning Algorithm to Predict Hypotension Based on High-fidelity Arterial Pressure Waveform Analysis"†

Acumen HPI software demonstrated high accuracy in predicting hypotension.

An internal validation of 350 patient records demonstrated that 10 minutes before an event, Acumen HPI software predicted hypotension with a specificity and sensitivity of 89% and 90% respectively, and with an AUC of 0.95 (CL 95%).2

Studies conducted with arterial line monitoring

Risk of hypotension

Though intraoperative hypotension (IOH) is common in surgical patients, numerous studies indicate that it is strongly associated with risk of myocardial injury (MI), acute kidney injury (AKI), and mortality.6,7

Acumen HPI software is effective in detecting hemodynamic instability and substantially reducing the duration of IOH during noncardiac surgery.*

*Compared to a retrospective historical control group, in patients requiring arterial line monitoring1

common9

88% of patients continuously monitored with an arterial line still experienced hypotension, defined as MAP <65 mmHg for 1 minute.9

IOH has elevated risks

Prolonged exposures below MAP thresholds of 65 mmHg are associated with increased risk of mortality, myocardial injury and AKI after noncardiac surgery.6,7,10,11
