Predict hypotension sooner.* Act ahead of time.1,2

The Acumen intelligent decision support suite lets you detect and proactively manage haemodynamic instability, which can lead to hypotension and its associated risks. It also provides retrospective analysis for the management of hypotension.3,4

Acumen HPI software - which is powered by a first-of-its-kind algorithm1 that was developed with machine learning - can predict the onset of hypotension.1,4-6

Acumen HPI software delivers a range of advanced haemodynamic pressure and flow parameters:

  • Alerting you when a patient is trending toward hypotension.7
  • Allowing you to investigate and understand the root cause,8 and to determine the best course of action.8,9
  • Potentially avoiding hypotension and its associated risks.8,9

Acumen HPI software is accessed via a minimally-invasive Acumen IQ sensor or finger cuff that connects to an advanced monitoring platform.4

In a two-center retrospective analysis of patients undergoing major surgery, the Hypotension Prediction Index software demonstrated superior predictive ability than the commonly measured perioperative haemodynamic variables.2
*Predictive performance of HPI is superior to that of CO, SV, MAP, PP, HR, SVV and Shock Index.2

Acumen Hypotension Prediction Index (HPI) software

Acumen HPI software – which is powered by a first-of-its-kind algorithm that was developed with machine learning – can predict the onset of hypotension.1, 4-6

Some studies have shown reduced incidence, duration and severity of IOH* during non-cardiac surgery guided by an Acumen HPI software protocol vs. standard of care.8,9

*IOH is defined as MAP <65 mmHg for at least one minute.
