For the first time, a continuous, noninvasive means of assessing tissue oxygenation and monitoring it during resuscitation.  

The InSpectra™ StO2 Tissue Oxygenation Monitor, designed and tested for trauma use, provides a direct, absolute measurement of hemoglobin oxygen saturation in tissue (StO2).

Noninvasive. The adhesive-backed
InSpectra StO2 Sensor attaches easily
to the patient’s thenar eminence.
 
Quick. The InSpectra StO2 Tissue Oxygenation Monitor provides readings 20 seconds after start-up. No calibration needed.
 
Continuous. The InSpectra StO2 Monitor provides a continuous numeric reading and a trended display.
The InSpectra StO2 System is the only tissue oxygenation monitor designed for trauma environments. It uses near-infrared light to illuminate muscle tissue. Light returning to the InSpectra StO2 Sensor is analyzed to produce a direct measurement of oxygen saturation in the microcirculation, where oxygen is exchanged with tissue.

Our European Advisory Board was instrumental in the design and clinical testing of the InSpectra StO2 System.




The InSpectra™ StO2 Tissue Oxygenation Monitor provides a direct, absolute measurement of hemoglobin oxygen saturation in tissue (StO2), providing trauma teams the ability to measure tissue oxygenation and monitor it during resuscitation. It is the only tissue oxygenation monitor designed for trauma environments. The InSpectra StO2 Tissue Oxygenation Monitor uses near infrared light to illuminate tissue, and then analyzes the returned light to produce a quantitative measurement of oxygen saturation in the tissue's microcirculation.

The StO2 Trauma Study researched the role that tissue oxygen saturation monitoring could play in hemorrhagic shock and resuscitation. Study results demonstrate that StO2 measurements less than 75% may indicate serious hypoperfusion in trauma patients and that StO2 functions as well as base deficit in indicating hypoperfusion in trauma patients.
