The INVOS™ system

A Clear Choice Supported by Clinical Data

  • The only cerebral oximeter on the market to be tested and validated under varying levels of CO2 to ensure measurement sensitivity during changing levels of blood volume under the sensor.([FOOTNOTE=Kim M, Ward D, Cartwright C, et al. Estimation of jugular venous O2 saturation from cerebral oximetry or arterial O2 saturation during isocapnic hypoxia. J Clin Monit Comput. 2000;16(3):191-99.],[ANCHOR=View Abstract],[LINK=/content/covidien/websites/medtronic/com/en/covidien/support/clinical-evidence.html?id=297373])
  • Provides reliable, real-time data (what some manufacturers call “absolute”) in patients > 2.5 kg.
  • The only cerebral/somatic oximeter with rigorous, peer-reviewed clinical investigations demonstrating ability to improve patient outcomes.([FOOTNOTE=Murkin JM, Adams SJ, Novick RJ, et al.

  • More than 1,000 clinical studies (more than 600 which are peer-reviewed) show the INVOS™ system as the clinical standard.
  • Three published, randomized, controlled trials have established the clinical value of the INVOS™ system to aid clinicians in improving patient outcomes.
  • The only device with a claim for improved outcomes after surgery.2,3,([FOOTNOTE=Goldman S, Sutter F, Ferdinand F, Trace C.
