The right monitoring makes a difference – for all your patients' differences
No patient is safe from the risks of cerebral desaturations. But now, the tissue oximetry and advanced hemodynamic insights you need to identify and even reverse cerebral desaturations for a diverse patient population are available on one monitor.
The ForeSight tissue oximetry system:
- Accounts for individual differences, including skin tone, size, age, skin-to-cortex distance and acuity
- Delivers absolute StO2 values, making preinduction baselines optional
- Integrates with the HemoSphere platform for an all-in-one view of patient perfusion
With the ForeSight system, you can have the reliable, actionable tissue oximetry insights you need to intervene when it matters most.
The ForeSight system difference
Absolute, actionable tissue oximetry measures
Across a diverse patient population
As part of a complete hemodynamic profile
Designed for patient differences
A tissue oximetry system designed with patient differences in mind
Due to the limitations in some other tissue oximetry system designs, patient differences including melanin or bilirubin concentrations, skin-to-cortex distance, 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), the ForeSight system can account for these patient differences – enabling reliable StO2 measures from patient to patient.
Study shows ForeSight system 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.)
The ForeSight tissue oximetry system 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 system is designed to penetrate 25% deeper than other technologies
The ForeSight system is designed to penetrate deeper. At 2.5 cm, the 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 the ForeSight system you can start monitoring without delay.
The ForeSight system 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.
Algorithms tailored to placement on body
The ForeSight system 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 the ForeSight system integrates with the 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.
Cerebral and somatic tissue oxygen desaturations are common
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.
Another parameter available on HemoSphere platform is Hypotension Prediction Index (HPI), available through Acumen HPI software. This first-of-its kind of predictive software alerts you to the likelihood of a patient trending toward hypotension – may help to prevent or mitigate cerebral desaturations caused by hypotension.
