Tensys Medical, Inc., a leader in the development and commercialization of continuous, non-invasive hemodynamic patient monitoring systems, announced that a scientific paper evaluating the use of the company's T-line technology has been published in the British Journal of Anesthesia (03/13/13—advance online publication). In this study, the investigators compared blood pressure measurements in 34 medical ICU patients using the TL-200pro non-invasive method versus invasive femoral artery catheterization. The authors reported that the TL-200pro system is able to provide mean arterial pressure (MAP) values with high accuracy and precision when compared to invasively assessed MAP values. According to Dr. Bernd Saugel, lead author of the paper, "The emerging role of non-invasive technologies in the monitoring of critically ill patients is clear, and the TL-200pro is a promising candidate for both patients and physicians when compared to traditional, invasive approaches."
“The impact of non-invasive monitoring in the ICU will be even more pronounced as we will soon add the ability to monitor cardiac output and additional hemodynamic parameters using our recently 510(k) cleared, next generation TL-300 platform.”
