The risks of cerebral desaturation events are real

Major organ morbidity and mortality.([FOOTNOTE=Murkin JM, Adams SJ, Novick RJ, et al. Monitoring brain oxygen saturation during coronary bypass surgery:  a randomized, prospective study. Anesth Analg. 2007;104:51–58.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]) Renal failure.Stroke.1,([FOOTNOTE=Goldman S, Sutter F, Ferdinand F, Trace C. Optimizing intraoperative cerebral oxygen delivery using noninvasive cerebral oximetry decreases the incidence of stroke for cardiac surgical patients. Heart Surg Forum. 2004;7(5):E376–E381.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]) They’re just three of several postoperative risks associated with cerebral desaturation events — and they are common and costly. Especially during cardiac surgery.

Timely intervention is key

Cerebral oximetry can play an important role as a valuable “first alert.” Because it monitors for hemodynamic changes and deteriorating patient conditions. And a well-protected brain may act as an index organ of how well organs are perfused and oxygenated.([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal Medtronic white paper #11-PM-0232(1), Cerebral oximetry is frequently a “first alert” indicator of adverse outcomes. April 2016.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]) With the right monitoring solution — you can have the confidence to intervene to avoid serious complications.

Confidence in your first alert

INVOS™ technology meets your clinical demands. In fact, no other cerebral oximetry technology is backed by a comparable volume of published, peer-reviewed clinical research.

The INVOS™ 7100 system is built on this reliable technology.  That means it delivers first-alert performance with its unique proprietary algorithm that measures acute alterations in hemodynamics, regional oxygen saturation (rSO2), and oxygen metabolism.

The INVOS™ 7100 system also offers system improvements that were developed using feedback from customers around the world who have used the INVOS™ 5100C system.

Those improvements include:

  • A detachable, lightweight tablet-style monitor with touchscreen convenience
  • An intuitive interface that’s easy to use
  • A smaller sensor footprint that makes it usable with the BIS™ monitoring system

When the INVOS™ 7100 system is used in your OR and ICU, it can improve your ability to intervene when your patients need you most. Because seconds matter.
