Predictive decision support. Individualised patient care solutions for smart recovery1,2
HemoSphere advanced monitoring platform provides a comprehensive view of haemodynamics and tissue oximetry, giving you data to inform your clinical decisions. From one monitor, you can continuously monitor your patient using both oxygen saturation and haemodynamic parameters to ensure they remain adequately perfused.
The only platform to offer full-range cuff, sensor and catheter compatibility along with first-of-its-kind hypotension predictive decision support software*, HemoSphere advanced monitor enables proactive, individualised patient management.
HemoSphere advanced monitoring platform offers a unique visual monitoring experience with enhanced screen clarity, intuitive navigation, and responsive touch for intelligent decision support and individualised patient care.

Three expansion slots and two cable ports provide access to each Edwards haemodynamic and tissue oximetry monitoring technology. The module design enables full-range device compatibility with non-invasive, minimally-invasive, and invasive monitoring capability on a single platform.
HemoSphere advanced monitor is wireless-enabled and offers additional advanced connectivity including: USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, Serial ports, HL7 (Health Level 7), HDMI, and IFMout
Adapts to a range of applications and patient requirements with tabletop, pole or rack placement and a hot swappable battery that enables monitoring to be resumed between clinical environments.
HemoSphere advanced monitoring platform offers full-range device compatibility for proactive decision support across a diversity of patient profiles and across care settings.
Acumen IQ cuff
Acumen IQ cuff unlocks Acumen Hypotension Prediction Index (HPI) software and provides continuous blood pressure and advanced haemodynamic parameters from a noninvasive finger cuff. Acumen IQ cuff gives you noninvasive access to calculated beat-to-beat haemodynamic information for a broad patient population, including patients in whom an arterial line would not typically be placed.
HPI I Eadyn I dP/dt I CO/CI I SV/SVI I SVV I SVR/SVRI I MAP
ClearSight cuff provides continuous blood pressure and advanced haemodynamic parameters from a noninvasive finger cuff. Continuous data enables you to proactively optimise perfusion through haemodynamic management.
CO/CI | SV/SVI | SVV | SVR/SVRI | MAP
ForeSight tissue oximetry sensor
ForeSight system is a highly accurate, precise, and tailorable tissue oximetry system for continuous monitoring. Reliable, real-time monitoring of surgical patients provides decision support for detecting and managing hypoxic events as soon as they occur.
Acumen IQ sensor
Acumen IQ sensor unlocks the 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*. It also attaches to any existing radial arterial line and automatically calculates key parameters every 20 seconds, reflecting rapid physiologic changes in surgical and nonsurgical patients.
HPI | Eadyn | dP/dt | CO/CI | SV/SVI | SVV/PPV | SVR/SVRI | MAP
Delivers advanced pressure and flow parameters for managing perfusion. Offers continuous insight to determine a patient’s haemodynamic status. Seamlessly connects to any existing arterial catheter.
CO/CI | SV/SVI | SVR/SVRI | SVV/PPV | MAP
The Swan-Ganz catheter, with the FastCCO algorithm, enables CO and SV parameters every 20 seconds 3,4**
Swan-Ganz pulmonary artery catheters provide flow, pressure, and oxygen delivery and consumption parameters. With the FastCCO algorithm, CO and SV update every 20 seconds, giving you a faster, continuous view of cardiac function for more proactive decision support in your most complex patients.

PediaSat oximetry catheter
The first pediatric oximetry catheter with continuous ScvO2 monitoring for proactive management of tissue hypoxia.5,6
Haemodynamic and tissue oximetry insights provided by HemoSphere advanced monitoring platform can help guide you with proactive decision support throughout the continuum of care so you can maintain optimal patient perfusion.
Cerebral and tissue desaturations
Cerebral and tissue desaturations are serious and may lead to complications such as post-operative cognitive dysfunction and increased incidence of stroke. Having a comprehensive picture of oxygen delivery and consumption may allow you to reduce the clinical implications of prolonged desaturations.
Sepsis and shock
Severe sepsis and septic shock are among the most common causes of morbidity and mortality in patients admitted to the intensive care unit. 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.
Hypotension is common. Studies show strong associations between intraoperative hypotension (IOH) and increased risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) and myocardial injury, which is the leading cause of post-operative mortality within 30 days after surgery. Early detection of hypotension by continuous haemodynamic monitoring can reduce a patient’s risk.7-10
HemoSphere advanced monitoring platform enables access to continuous pressure and flow parameters, helping to determine patient fluid responsiveness and guide individualised fluid management targets.1,11-14 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.1,11,12
Advanced parameter capability
Comprehensive data keeps you one step ahead in a rapidly changing environment, enabling you to make decisions proactively, maintaining patient safety.
