The United Kingdom's National Health Service advises hospitals to use Intraoperative Fluid Management Technologies to improve patient outcomes and decrease costs. In June 2012, the NHS included PVI in its new Intra Operative Fluid Management pack, which serves as a guide for hospitals wishing to implement fluid responsiveness monitoring.14
Michael O'Reilly, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Masimo, stated: "Masimo is indeed improving patient outcome and reducing cost of care with its breakthrough measurements, such as PVI. Masimo is the only pulse oximetry technology to offer automated assessment of fluid responsiveness with PVI, along with other breakthrough measurements available with rainbow® technology such as noninvasive and continuous hemoglobin (SpHb®) to help clinicians reduce unnecessary blood transfusions."
