Acumen HPI software provides the clinician with physiological insight into the likelihood of a patient trending towards a hypotensive event (defined as mean arterial pressure (MAP) < 65 mmHg for at least one minute) and the associated hemodynamic parameters. Acumen HPI software is intended for use in surgical and non-surgical patients receiving advanced hemodynamic monitoring. Acumen HPI software is used as decision support to supplement the clinician’s assessment of the patient’s physiological condition. No therapeutic decisions should be made based solely on Acumen HPI parameter.
Acumen HPI software, on HemoSphere advanced monitoring platform, is enabled by minimally-invasive Acumen IQ sensor. Acumen IQ sensor connects to an existing radial arterial line. Hemodynamic information is calculated and presented on HemoSphere advanced monitoring platform. The entire system is comprised of:
- Acumen IQ sensor: The sensor is connected to the existing arterial catheter tubing from the patient. The sensor relays information to the standard anesthesia monitor in the form of continuous arterial pressure waveform. The sensor also relays information to Acumen HPI software-enabled HemoSphere monitor.
- ForeSight sensor continuously monitors cerebration oxygen saturation noninvasively.
- Acumen HPI software: The software consists of Hypotension Prediction Index parameter and other advanced hemodynamic parameters.
- HemoSphere monitor: This is the monitor which displays the continuous arterial pressure monitoring, HPI parameter, and other advanced hemodynamic parameters.
