The right monitoring makes a difference –
for all your patients’ differences
The tissue oximetry and advanced hemodynamic insights you need to identify and even reverse cerebral desaturations for a diverse patient population are now available on one monitor.
ForeSight tissue oximetry sensor:
- Accounts for patient-to-patient differences, including skin tone, size, age, scalp-to-cortex distance and acuity
- Delivers absolute StO2 values, making a preinduction baseline optional
- Measures relative change in total tissue hemoglobin, providing insights into causes of StO2 changes
- Integrates with HemoSphere platform for an all-in-one view of patient perfusion
With ForeSight sensor, you can have the reliable, actionable tissue oximetry insights
you need to intervene when it matters most.
Designed for patient diversity
A tissue oximetry sensor designed with patient differences in mind
Due to the limitations in some other tissue oximetry sensor designs, patient differences including melanin or bilirubin concentrations, cranial thickness, etc., can cloud the accuracy – and therefore the reliability – of oxygenation measures.
With a unique sensor design and exclusive fifth wavelength of near infrared light (NIRS), ForeSight sensor can account for these patient differences – enabling reliable StO2 measures from patient to patient.
Study shows ForeSight sensor accounts for individual differences in melanin
In conventional two-wavelength tissue oximetry systems, skin pigmentation has been shown to interfere with the clinical measurement of regional cerebral oxygen saturation. (Sun et al.)
ForeSight tissue oximetry sensor has been demonstrated to accommodate for the melanin present in a patient’s skin because of its fifth wavelength of near infrared light (NIRS). (Stannard et al.)
ForeSight sensor is designed to penetrate 25% deeper than other technologies
Research shows that a 2 cm depth of penetration is insufficient for accurate measurement of StO2 in adult cardiac patients with a deeper scalp-to-cortex distance. But ForeSight sensor is designed to penetrate deeper. At 2.5 cm, ForeSight sensor can provide reliable readings for patients with greater than 2 cm scalp-cortex distance.

Absolute values, actionable insights
Preinduction baseline optional
The realities of the operating room don’t always allow for the opportunity to set a preinduction baseline – but with ForeSight sensor you can start monitoring without delay.
ForeSight sensor provides continuous, absolute StO2 readings without the need for a preinduction baseline – while still giving you the freedom to set treatment thresholds and trend from a patient baseline.
Insight into desaturation events
In addition to StO2 measurements, ForeSight sensor trends the relative change in total tissue hemoglobin (ΔctHb). The ΔctHb parameter gives you greater insights into potential causes of StO2 imbalances so that you can better understand and respond to desaturation events.
Algorithms tailored to placement on body
ForeSight sensor algorithms are calibrated and validated to both cerebral and somatic regions:
- Cerebral oximetry SctO2 calibrated and validated to SjvO2
- Somatic oximetry SmtO2 calibrated and validated to ScvO2
Additionally, you can view regional oxygenation values specific to sensor location via HemoSphere advanced monitoring platform.
Actionable insights to protect
Because ForeSight sensor integrates with HemoSphere advanced monitoring platform, you get more than numbers – you get comprehensive insights into patient perfusion, as well as the ability to identify the root cause of imbalances.
One monitor, comprehensive insights
Tissue oximetry measures are only one part of a surgical patient’s hemodynamic profile.
That’s why the ForeSight system is available as part of the HemoSphere advanced monitoring platform – making it the only system that allows you to see a comprehensive view of patient perfusion (including pressure, flow and tissue oximetry) on the same monitor.
This “all-in-one” view delivers comprehensive insights into patient perfusion that can help you drill down to identify the root cause of imbalances – enabling you to administer interventions with confidence.
