All indices in one PainMonitor device
To tailor the need of analgesia, use the real time PainMonitor device based on skin conductance changes during anaesthesia, intensive care, postoperatively and in preterm infants. Additionally, the device has indices for assessing awakening, withdrawal symptoms and the effect of regional nerve-block within seconds.
The main advantages
The PainMonitor device is validated in more than 70 peer reviewed clinical studies showing that the indices increase during painful and nociceptive events. The index reacts within seconds and has low variation between individuals. Due to the fact that the active nerve transmitter is acetyl-choline acting on muscarinic receptors, the device is not influenced from temperature (22 °C – 42 °C), neuromuscular blockers, anxiety, the hypotensive effect of alfa-2 agonists or the circulatory influence from epinephrines or beta-blockers as well as general hypoxia or changes in blood volume. The software includes indices for assessing awakening from anaesthesia, withdrawal symptoms and the effect of regional nerve-block within seconds. Med-Storm’s software can be installed on existing patient monitors (Philips, Mindray and Draeger). The PainMonitor device is IP-protected, CE-certified and soon FDA approved. Read More.
