New Study Compares Two Methods of Guiding Goal-Directed Fluid Therapy, Noninvasive Masimo PVi® and Invasive Esophageal Doppler

Del

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today the findings of a study recently published in BMC Anesthesiology in which researchers at University Hospital Linköping, Sweden, compared the performance of goal-directed fluid therapy (GDFT) using invasive esophageal Doppler to GDFT using Masimo PVi® (pleth variability index, measured noninvasively and continuously using SET® pulse oximetry sensors) in patients undergoing major abdominal surgery.1

Noting the value of GDFT in aiming to determine “the optimal amount of fluid for an individual patient,” Dr. Hans Bahlmann and colleagues sought to compare the effects of two methods of GDFT, stroke volume optimization guided by invasive esophageal Doppler (control group) and fluid optimization guided by noninvasive PVi (intervention group), on patients who were scheduled for open abdominal surgery lasting two or more hours. The effects compared were incidence of complications and length of hospital stay.

The researchers collected data from 146 patients who had surgery between November 2011 and January 2015, who were randomly divided into the two groups. In the intervention group, PVi was noninvasively and continuously measured with a Masimo Radical-7® Pulse CO-Oximeter® with software version 7.8.0.1 and SET® sensors. After an initial fluid bolus (given to all patients irrespective of PVi value), a fluid bolus was given if PVi was ≥ 10%, repeated at 5 minute intervals until PVi fell below 10% or did not decrease at all. In the control group, esophageal Doppler measurements were performed using a Deltex Medical CardioQ apparatus. After an initial fluid bolus, Doppler measurement was performed after 5 minutes and fluid boluses were repeated until stroke volume did not increase by 10%, in accordance with published protocols.

Observers blinded to each patient’s group assessed complications for 30 postoperative days using a pre-specified list of complications, as well as length of hospital stay. The researchers found that noninvasive PVi and invasive Doppler performed with no statistical difference, with similar incidences of complications and lengths of stay between the two groups. In the intervention/PVi group, there were 64 complications (corresponding to 51% of patients), with a median length of stay of 8.0 days (interquartile range [IQR] 8.0 days). In the control/Doppler group, there were 70 complications (corresponding to 49% of patients), with a median length of stay of 8.0 days (IQR 9.5).

The researchers concluded, “No difference in clinical outcome, as defined by number of postoperative complications, and length of hospital stay, was found when goal-directed fluid therapy was applied using PVi as an alternative to esophageal Doppler. PVi appears to be an acceptable alternative to esophageal Doppler for goal-directed fluid therapy during major open abdominal surgery.”

In discussing other PVi-related clinical studies, the researchers also noted that “Based on these reports and our findings, a clinician wishing to pursue GDFT can choose PVi over esophageal Doppler in the large majority of patients undergoing major open abdominal surgery. PVi, in contrast to esophageal Doppler, is not sensitive to interference from diathermy and does not require frequent access to the patient’s head for probe repositioning. Also, PVi can be measured without single-use equipment, avoiding the cost for single-use esophageal probes (USD 130 in our setting). However, as illustrated by the request for Doppler data in two PVi patients, the clinician might still want to have access to a reliable method for measuring intraoperative cardiac output to increase the amount of hemodynamic information during unusually complex situations or in cases of known vascular and/or myocardial dysfunction.”

As a study limitation, the researchers noted the absence of a control group with neither PVi nor Doppler guiding fluid therapy, and therefore “it is not possible to tell whether PVi and Doppler both result in similar improvements in outcome, or whether neither method improves outcome when compared to treatment without GDFT.” They also noted that because of determining sample size using a 10% difference in the number of complications at 30 days, “the study was not powered to detect smaller albeit still significant differences in postoperative outcome.”

PVi has not been cleared by the FDA to assess fluid responsiveness.

About Masimo

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) is a global leader in innovative noninvasive monitoring technologies. Our mission is to improve patient outcomes and reduce the cost of care. In 1995, the company debuted Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry, which has been shown in multiple studies to significantly reduce false alarms and accurately monitor for true alarms. Masimo SET® has also been shown to help clinicians reduce severe retinopathy of prematurity in neonates,1 improve CCHD screening in newborns,2 and, when used for continuous monitoring with Masimo Patient SafetyNet™ in post-surgical wards, reduce rapid response activations and costs.3,4,5 Masimo SET® is estimated to be used on more than 100 million patients in leading hospitals and other healthcare settings around the world,6 and is the primary pulse oximetry at 9 of the top 10 hospitals listed in the 2018-19 U.S. News and World Report Best Hospitals Honor Roll.7 In 2005, Masimo introduced rainbow® Pulse CO-Oximetry technology, allowing noninvasive and continuous monitoring of blood constituents that previously could only be measured invasively, including total hemoglobin (SpHb®), oxygen content (SpOC™), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), methemoglobin (SpMet®), Pleth Variability Index (PVi®), and more recently, Oxygen Reserve Index (ORi™), in addition to SpO2, pulse rate, and perfusion index (Pi). In 2014, Masimo introduced Root®, an intuitive patient monitoring and connectivity platform with the Masimo Open Connect® (MOC-9®) interface, enabling other companies to augment Root with new features and measurement capabilities. Masimo is also taking an active leadership role in mHealth with products such as the Radius-7® wearable patient monitor, iSpO2 ® pulse oximeter for smartphones, and the MightySat™ fingertip pulse oximeter.

JPND Launches Updated Research and Innovation Strategy23.4.2019 06:45:00 CESTPressemelding

The EU Joint Programme – Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JPND) initiative 1 has launched its updated global Research and Innovation Strategy (RIS) , to provide a unified framework for the support of world class research into neurodegenerative diseases. Neurodegenerative diseases are one of the world’s leading medical and societal challenges and there are now expected to be 50 million people worldwide suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. Globally, these numbers show no signs of abating, and it is estimated that by 2050 in Europe alone, the total direct and informal care costs for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease will exceed €350 billion annually.2 JPND is the first and largest collaborative research initiative established to tackle the growing challenge posed by neurodegenerative diseases. JPND’s ultimate goal is to accelerate the discovery of a cure and to enable early diagnosis for early personalised treatments. In the meantime, it is essential to implement

Standard Bank Moves Business to the Cloud with Moody’s Analytics22.4.2019 13:00:00 CESTPressemelding

Moody’s Analytics, a global provider of financial intelligence, announced today that Johannesburg-based Standard Bank Group has selected the Moody’s Analytics CreditLens™ solution to digitize and automate its credit processes. Built on the latest cloud-based technology, the CreditLens platform helps financial institutions digitally transform their commercial credit processes to make faster and better-informed credit decisions. With $148 billion in assets, Standard Bank Group is the largest bank in Africa by that measure. It offers banking and financial services across 20 countries in sub-Saharan Africa. This extensive footprint is part of what led the bank to pursue a cloud-based platform. “It was becoming less and less efficient to have our systems on premise across so many segments and regions, so the idea that the CreditLens platform will always be up to date with product enhancements pushed through the cloud is extremely appealing to us,” said Gordon Turnbull, Head of Credit for Bu
