Stroke Volume, Cardiac Output and Total Peripheral Resistance are major vital signs that can be of great help if monitored continuously during anesthesia.
The common practice of measuring these parameters involved the insertion of a catheter which creates additional complication and risk. As a result, the utilization of such catheter is limited to special cases only.
NICaS (Non Invasive Cardiac System) can monitor these parameters by means of just 2 sensors placed on patient both wrists. This noninvasive, easy to use and low cost technology can be a useful solution to provide anesthesiologist a better understanding of patients hemodynamics.
