Acacia Designs is an international development company founded by leading clinicians and developers within the field of anesthesia. The company originates from research at Mayo Clinic, USA, the largest integrated non-commercial medical institution in the world and in 2015 ranked as the world's best hospital. Acacia has developed TetraGraph - a unique system for objective monitoring of patients undergoing anesthesia and the use of neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBAs). The system makes it possible to objectively determine the right dose of medication and when it is safe to wake the patient and allow for spontaneous breathing following surgery. Every year more than 20 million patients are affected by post-operative complications related to the use of NMBAs and premature extubation. The TetraGraph is intended to easily and precisely improve the monitoring of these patients to reduce complications and healthcare costs. Objective monitoring of patients receiving NMBAs is an established practice in several countries such as Scandinavia and France, and numbers of initiatives are underway to establish the method as Standard of Care. Acacia was founded in 2014 by Prof. Sorin J. Brull and Dr. David R. Hampton based on many years of research and development. www.acaciadesigns.eu
