Analytic for Hemodynamic Instability (AHI)
Indications for Use
The AHI software is intended for use by healthcare professionals managing in-hospital patients 18 years or older who are receiving continuous physiological monitoring with electrocardiography (ECG).
AHI provides a frequently updated binary output over time based on pattern analysis of a lead-II ECG waveform intended to describe a patient’s hemodynamic status and indicate if a patient is showing signs of hemodynamic stability or instability. Signs of hemodynamic instability are defined as hypotension (systolic blood pressure <90 mmHg or mean arterial pressure (MAP) <70 mmHg) combined with tachycardia (heart rate ≥ 100 bpm).
The goal of this adjunctive monitoring method is to enable identification of patients who are showing signs of hemodynamic instability and to allow clinicians an opportunity to increase vigilance. This device is intended for adjunctive use with other physical vital sign parameters and patient information and is not intended to independently direct therapy.
The key value proposition is in accurately predicting problems before they happen to aid in the recognition and rescue of the deteriorating patient…this makes it a novel next generation monitoring and predicting tool.
We have a couple of teams dabbling in "early warning" models but they have not distilled it down to a single ECG lead!
The linkage of an early response team with this technology would have a very high likelihood of being associated with a significant survival benefit.
This is an amazing breakthrough! I can see so many applications within the hospital. I would like to get you connected to our innovation center so that we could be involved in its development.
Yes, this is a game-changer. The industry absolutely needs a better detection system for hemodynamic instability.
All I can say is wow! That is awesome.
