LiMON Module and Sensor
- Plasma Disappearance Rate of Indocyanine Green (PDR/ICG)
- Continuous SpO2* Measurement
- Easy application
LiMON Sensor: Re-useable finger sensor
- Non-invasive liver function Monitoring
- Continuous SpO2* Monitoring
Consumables: Indocyanine Green
*This parameter will not be available on the PulsioFlex monitor from software version 5.0
The LiMON measurement is based on the elimination of the diagnostic drug indocyanine green (ICG). ICG is injected into a vein, binds immediately and completely to plasma proteins and is exclusively eliminated from the blood by the liver. This elimination is quite fast with a half life time of 3.5 to 4 minutes.
