CONCEPTUAL PROBLEMS OF
CURRENT PATIENT MONITORS
AND TEB/IMPEDANCE CARDIOGRAPHY MONITORS
OF OTHER COMPANIES

The purpose of a cardiovascular monitor is to provide an early warning of an impending cardiovascular disaster. Though cardiovascular monitors have undergone tremendous technological improvements over the last 50 years (from a "bouncing ball" display in the '50s to current multicolor display), these technological improvements have not been paralleled by improvements in outcomes of patients monitored by these monitors.

Why?


In contrast to the conceptual problems of patient and TEB monitors listed above, BoMed's Systems have been designed as proactive systems. They monitor complete hemodynamics (including the Cardiac Index - the only dynamic modulator of Oxygen Delivery), provide information, which of the monitored parameters are within their normal ranges (a function of gender, age and clinical state) and which are not, and provide hemodynamic management information (what therapy to administer to reach the desired hemodynamic and perfusion state - i.e. the therapeutic goal), thus enabling the clinician to maintain a patient in a normohemodynamic and normoperfusion state. In addition, they allow hemodynamic modeling of the hemodynamic effects of cardio- and vasoactive pharmaceutical agents.
