VS for research

Enabling new research opportunities

The SurePulse VS for research provides additional data recording and output capabilities over and above the clinical version. This enables new research potential in neonatal physiology and clinical practice.

Expanding Research Potential

The following clinical applications are all connected to the photoplethysmogram [Allen 2007]

Clinical Physiological Monitoring

  • SPO2
  • Depth of anesthesia [Huiku 2007 and GEHC 2012]
  • Heart Rate
  • Blood Pressure using Pulse Transit Time ie ECG to PPG [Kachuee 2017]
  • Cardiac Output
  • Respiration

Vascular Assessment

  • Arterial Disease
  • Arterial Compliance and Ageing
  • Endothelial Function
  • Venous Assessment
  • Vasospastic conditions e.g. Reynaud’s phenomenon
  • Microvascular blood flow and tissue viability

Autonomic Function

  • Vasomotor function and thermoregulation
  • Blood Pressure and heart rate
  • Othostasis
  • Neurology
  • Other cardiovascular variability assessments
