SpHb is a breakthrough measurement that noninvasively and continuously measures total hemoglobin in the blood.
Noninvasive and Continuous Hemoglobin (SpHb®) Monitoring
Real-time visibility to changes – or lack of changes – in hemoglobin between invasive blood sampling
Limitations of Traditional Methods Alone
- > Laboratory hemoglobin values are only available intermittently and are often delayed
- > Clinicians can estimate blood loss but this can both overstate and understate actual blood loss1,2
SpHb Monitoring: Real-time Visibility to Changes–or Lack of Changes–in Hemoglobin Between Invasive Blood Sampling
SpHb monitoring may provide additional insight between invasive blood sampling when:
- > The SpHb trend is stable and the clinician may otherwise think hemoglobin is dropping
- > The SpHb trend is rising and the clinician may otherwise think hemoglobin is not rising fast enough
- > The SpHb trend is dropping and the clinician may otherwise think hemoglobin is stable
When Considered with All Other Information, SpHb Monitoring Supports Patient-centered Clinical Management
In this surgical case, SpHb measurements were blinded to the clinicians. Between invasive blood sampling, the clinicians could not assess changes, or lack of changes, in hemoglobin levels.3
In this post-surgical trauma case in which the patient returned to surgery, SpHb measurements were not blinded to the clinicians. Between invasive blood sampling, the clinicians could assess changes, or lack of changes, in hemoglobin levels.4
SpHb Monitoring Across the Continuum of Care
Monitoring hemoglobin continuously from Surgery to the PACU to the ICU and general floor.
