Nonin Medical is releasing in the U.S. its EQUANOX Advance Model 8004CB Series neonatal/pediatric (<40 Kg) oxygen saturation sensor for use with the EQUANOX Advance Model 7600 Oximetry System.
The company touts its patent-pending Dynamic Compensation algorithm that makes the sensor the only cerebral/somatic oxygen saturation sensor capable of automatically compensating for pediatric brain-tissue-development.
More details on the features from the announcement:
The EQUANOX Advance 8004CB and 8004CB-NA (non-adhesive) Neonatal/Pediatric Sensors, along with the Model 7600 Oximetry System, provide additional advantages including:
- Cerebral and Somatic Monitoring – Up to four channels displayed on one screen for monitoring oxygen saturation in the brain and somatic sites on the body, including kidney and liver sites
- Patented Dual-Light Emitters and Detectors with Four Wavelength Accuracy – The first and only device that utilizes a dual-light emitting and detecting sensor architecture, which has been shown to more effectively target the cerebral cortex, eliminating surface artifacts that interfere with measurement accuracy(1)
- Absolute Accuracy – Assures accurate measure of tissue saturation at a point in time, not just relative or trending accuracy of changes
- Consistency and Reliability – Rapid, reliable response to change without signal instability and interruptions from ambient electrical and light interferences
- Portability and Connectivity – Lightweight, durable monitor with long battery life and pole-mounting capability for continually monitoring patients during intra-hospital transport. Data output available via Bluetooth® wireless technology or RS232 connection. Interfaces with Philips® VueLink (through Philips IntelliVue® Monitor), Philips CompuRecord Anesthesia Information System, Spectrum Medical VIPER Independent Data Management System and Sorin Perfusion Data Management System.
