The clinical standard in regional oximetry

INVOS™ system adult sensors are used with the INVOS™ (In-Vivo Optical Spectroscopy) oximeter to noninvasively monitor site-specific adequacy of perfusion in the brain or body tissue directly beneath its sensors. This enables you to obtain real-time data on regional oxygen saturation (rSO2), which can detect site-specific ischemic complications even when systemic parameters or lab tests are within normal limits.([FOOTNOTE=Casati A, Fanelli G, Pietropaoli P, et al.

INVOS™ system adult sensors are applied to the skin’s surface and can be applied on up to four site-specific areas chosen by the care team. The sensors are user and patient friendly, making monitoring of ischemic threats to the brain and body safe and easy, while supplying the information the care team needs to assess and intervene accordingly.
