Five studies across four continents have found that noninvasive and continuous hemoglobin (SpHb) monitoring can help improve outcomes1-5

SpHb is supporting clinicians in over 75 countries around the world.*

Clinical decisions regarding red blood cell transfusions should be based on the clinician’s judgment considering among other factors: patient condition, continuous SpHb monitoring, and laboratory diagnostic tests using blood samples. SpHb monitoring is not intended to replace laboratory blood testing. Blood samples should be analyzed by laboratory instruments prior to clinical decision making.

Study Protocol: In each group, if researchers noted SpHb trended downward below 10 g/dL, a red blood cell transfusion was started and continued until SpHb trended upward above 10 g/dL. The transfusion threshold of 10 g/dL was predetermined by the study protocol and may not be appropriate for all patients. Blood sampling was the same for the control and test group. Arterial blood was drawn from a 20 gauge radial artery cannula into 2 mL EDTA collection tubes, mixed and sent for analysis by a Coulter GEN-S Hematology Analyzer.
