Regional Blood Oxygen Saturation Monitor
Mon, 10/13/2008 - 11:21am
The In Vivo Optical Spectroscopy (INVOS) System measures regional oxygen saturation (rS02) and provides real-time alerts about oxygen imbalances that help guide care strategies for adults, children and infants in the OR. Up to four sensors can be placed to show changes in blood oxygenation toward or beyond threshold levels, potentially lessening or preventing complications. The INVOS Cerebral/Somatic Oximeter is the only FDA-cleared noninvasive oximeter to simultaneously monitor changes in regional blood oxygen saturation in the brain and body.
