The InSpectra™ StO2
Tissue Oxygenation Monitor

Designed by – and for – trauma physicians and nurses.

The InSpectra™ StO2 Tissue Oxygenation Monitor is the only tissue oxygenation system designed for trauma environments. It provides a direct, absolute measurement of hemoglobin oxygen saturation in tissue (StO2).

The InSpectra StO2 Tissue Oxygenation Monitor. It’s a new measure of confidence in trauma care.
 



 
The InSpectra StO2 Tissue Oxygenation Monitor is a noninvasive monitoring system that measures an approximated value of percent hemoglobin oxygen saturation in tissue (StO2). The InSpectra StO2 Tissue Oxygenation Monitor is indicated for use in monitoring patients during circulatory or perfusion examinations of skeletal muscle, or when there is a suspicion of compromised circulation.
 
The InSpectra™ StO2 Tissue Oxygenation Monitor received FDA 510(k) market clearance in 2006 for the indications for use specified. In addition, the device and accessories are CE marked.








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.
