TetraGraph Exhibition and Poster at The International Anesthesia Research Society’s (IARS) 2018 Annual Meeting, Chicago
News: Uppsala, May 4, 2018.
The meeting addresses cutting-edge topics in all anesthesia subspecialties and looks to the future of anesthesia. More than 1,000 of the world’s leading minds in anesthesia education and research attends the meeting.
TetraGraph is a unique, EMG-based portable device for quantitative monitoring of neuromuscular function. It’s a precise and easy to use tool for monitoring depth of block, ensuring adequate recovery of muscle function, and aiding the clinician reduce the incidence of residual block. Senzime held demonstrations of the TetraGraph during the conference, with a great interest from clinicians to learn more about its benefits and possibilities.
During the meeting, Ross Renew, MD, Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, Florida presented a poster entitled, “Comparative Investigation of Acceleromyography-based IntelliVue NMT and Electromyography-based TetraGraph Quantitative Neuromuscular Monitors: a pilot study.”
The pilot study compared the TetraGraph, with Philips IntelliVue NMT Acceleromyography-based Monitor. In this pilot study, the EMG-based TOF measurements were more consistent compared to the AMG-based measurements. Though AMG proved more sensitive in detecting lower levels of neuromuscular blockade, the overall reliability and ease of use of the new electromyography-based device was better.
