We are proud to announce the release of firmware 1.30 for the PACE 203. The new software provides the user unprecedented control over cardiac stimulation by leveraging the most fundamental electrical property- Ohm’s Law. The PACE 203 is the only external pacemaker to instantaneously show the voltage and current applied to the patient along with the impedance of the lead system. More information can be found here.

“Hemodynamic profile of patients having cesarean delivery under spinal anesthesia obtained by continuous measurement of cardiac output” abstract by Liu Y was presented at Massachusetts General Hospital’s Clinical Research Day 2012.

“Validation of electrical cardiometry vs fick method and thermodilution to determine cardiac output in patients undergoing cardiopulmonary exercise testing” abstract by Liu Y was presented at Massachusetts General Hospital’s Clinical Research Day 2012. Big congratulations to Dr. Yanhong Liu and company for winning the Departmental Award for Anesthesia!

“Cardiac parameters in children recovered from acute illness as measured by electrical cardiometry and comparisons to literature” by Wong J et al. was accepted in the Journal of Clinical Monitoring and computing.

Abstract: Electrical cardiometry (EC) is a non-invasive cardiac output method that can assess cardiac index (CI) and stroke index (SI) but there are no reference values for children per se. The primary aim of this study was to develop reference values for clinical application. The secondary aim was to compare the EC measurements to published values.

July 2012

Cardiotronic partners with the Pediatric Acute and Lung and Sepsis Investigators (PALISI) www.palisi.org group, a pediatric critical care clinical research network, to increase the quality of pediatric critical care using Electrical Cardiometry™ monitors. This research partnership will stretch across multiple university hospitals across the United States.

“Cardiovascular Effects of Dexmedetomidine Sedation in Children” by Wong J et al. was published by the International Anesthesia Research Society.

Abstract: Dexmedetomidine (DEX) affects heart rate (HR), mean arterial blood pressure, cardiac index (CI), stroke index (SI), and systemic vascular resistance index (SVRI) in adults. In this study we sought to determine whether similar effects occur in children undergoing DEX sedation.
