Provides early warning signs of distress that could help optimize flow to reduce adverse events and improve clinical outcomes
Transonic's Transit-time Ultrasound Flow Measurement (TTFM) is the gold standard for tubing flow verification. Using wide beam illumination, two transducers pass ultrasonic signals back and forth, alternately intersecting flowing liquid in upstream and downstream directions. The Flowmeter derives an accurate measure of the “transit time” it takes for the wave of ultrasound to travel from one transducer to the other. The difference between the upstream and downstream integrated transit times is a measure of volume flow rather than velocity. TTFM is repeatable and has an unmatched zero-flow stability, allowing for high accuracy at low flow rates.
Detects bubbles to help the user identify potential issues and improve clinical outcomes
Transonic's Transit-time Ultrasound Flow Measurement (TTFM) has the capability to detect bubbles, and algorithms can be integrated with your OEM device to stop the pump in the event of detected bubbles or send alert messages to the user.
Helps identify onset of thrombosis that could reduce adverse events and improve clinical outcomes
Ultrasound Dilution Technology
Transonic’s Ultrasound Dilution Technology (UDT) quantifies clot formations in the oxygenator. Pioneered by Nikolai Krivistki PhD, DSc., UDT uses saline as an innocuous indicator to measure oxygenator blood volume (OXBV). By trending it over time the ECMO team is alerted to any changes in flow measurement due to increased clotting within the oxygenator.
