NEUCHATEL, Switzerland-Thursday 6 September 2018 [ AETOS Wire ] (BUSINESS WIRE) -- 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 MasimoPVi® (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 complicat ... Read more »
