Pleth Variability Index: A Noninvasive Device for Fluid Responsiveness Assessment during Anesthesia(4)-A1604, Presented: October 22, 2008, 8:00-9:30 a.m., Room 230C
Impact of Lower Extremity Nerve Blockage on Oximeter Perfusion Index & Pleth Variability Index(5)-A1603, Presented: October 22, 2008, 8:00-9:30 a.m., Room 230C
Michael O'Reilly, MD, EVP of Medical Affairs at Masimo, stated; "These studies add to the evidence showing that PVI can provide clinicians with an effective and efficient noninvasive method of continuously measuring their patient's fluid volume. This should enable more accurate fluid administration decisions -- allowing clinicians to add a level of certainty and immediacy toward managing intravascular fluid volumes and cardiac output both inside and outside of the operating room."
PVI is available as part of Masimo Rainbow SET(R) Pulse CO-Oximetry(TM)
-- the first-and-only technology platform to noninvasively measure blood
constituents and fluid responsiveness that previously required invasive
procedures, including: noninvasive & continuous total hemoglobin
(SpHb(TM)), oxygen content (SpOC(TM)), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO(R)),
methemoglobin (SpMet(R)) and Pleth Variability Index (PVI), in addition
