According to Tensys Medical, Inc., this “non-invasive, continuous, real-time blood pressure monitor found clinically equivalent to a-line during periods of significant hemodynamic instability and induced hypotension”:
“The Tensys T-Line system correlated well with the A-line reference in a range of clinical circumstances and during periods of significant blood pressure change,” commented Dr. James G. Ramsay, Chief of Service, Department of Anesthesia at Emory University Hospital. “Apart from minor skin markings at the site of sensor application, there were no adverse effects and all evidence of sensor placement and marking had resolved by 1 hour post device removal,” continued Dr. Ramsay.
Dr. Peter Szmuk of the University of Texas (Houston) Medical School added “Our results comparing the Tensys T-Line to an invasive arterial reference are particularly impressive since our study population was specifically selected for surgical procedures requiring induced hypotension. Our results show remarkable correlation between the T-Line and the A-Line reference during clinical situations in which a typical NIBP cuff is known to be highly suspect and beat-to-beat vigilance is highly desirable,” continued Dr. Szmuk.
