NICCI Technology

Advanced Hemodynamic Monitoring at your fingertips

NICCI is the latest innovation in Advanced Hemodynamic Monitoring, providing continuous and noninvasive hemodynamic insights.

NICCI helps guiding individual treatment decisions by reliably providing dynamic parameters, such as mean arterial pressure (MAP), cardiac index (CI), stroke volume variation (SVV) and pulse pressure variation (PPV).

*The availability of NICCI depends on regional regulatory approval status

The Red Dot Award: Product Design 2020

The Red Dot Award: Product Design, whose origins date back to 1955, appraises the best products created every year. With record entry numbers, extensive testing procedures and exciting discussions, the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2020 was awarded to NICCI, stating “This blood pressure monitor pleases with its ergonomic and compact design. Moreover, it is designed to enhance the patient’s level of comfort.” The roughly 40 jurors were met with a diverse selection of entries, with more products submitted to the competition in 2020 than ever before.

Hypotension – an unknown risk?

Studies show: intraoperative hypotension is a fact. Even short hypotensive episodes are associated with severe complications. [1],[2]

Learn more about hypotension:

  • Why is intraoperative hypotension so common?
  • What kind of risks does it bear?
  • Is there a way to reduce hypotensive phases?

Never miss a beat

Blood pressure is one of the most important variables evaluated during almost every medical examination. However, recent studies show that fluctuations in blood pressure may be missed due to standard intermittent readings.[3],[4]

Hypotension related complications can be reduced by continuous, noninvasive blood pressure monitoring.[1],[2] NICCI helps to ensure you never miss a beat.

Peri-operative Value Card

Treatment decisions can be determined faster if they are confirmed by an algorithm and hemodynamic normal values. The Peri-operative Value Card allows to reflect on hemodynamic key questions:

  1. Is this an adequate Cardiac Index (CI) for the individual patient?
  2. Would my patient benefit from fluid loading or inotropic/vasoactive drug treatment?
  3. Is the MAP continuously over 65 mmHg?

Creating the new standard of Hemodynamic Monitoring

Advantages of continuous, individualized hemodynamic management

Why we choose continuity



Continuous blood pressure (BP) measurement allows the detection of rapid BP changes often unidentified by upper arm cuff readings and therefore helps to improve perioperative care.[7]

More than blood pressure



Derived advanced hemodynamic parameters (CI, SVV, PPV, CPI etc.) allow the user to quickly obtain cardiovascular parameters at baseline.[8]

Individualized patient monitoring



Enables individualized intraoperative fluid management and enables health care professionals to make confident informed therapy decisions.[8]


Hemodynamic Monitoring has never been easier

Success in everyday use: easy setup, fast results

The NICCI Sensor contains two finger cuffs and performs an automatically alternating continuous measurement at the patient’s finger. The easy click mechanism allows a fast setup. Smart features of the NICCI Module, like the integrated cable storage and quick access keys allow a simple handling.

  2. 4 NIBP cuffs available - S, M, L XL, for proper calibration values


Incorporate 20 years of intelligence

The NICCI Technology is based on the CNAP's® continuous noninvasive blood pressure technology. The Vascular Unloading Technique`s accuracy is proven in clinical settings for more than 20 years.

The measurement results are comparable to invasive arterial line measurements in terms of continuity, accuracy and waveform dynamics.[9]

Pulsating blood flow detected by infrared light sensors is kept constant by the counter pressure exerted on the artery by inflating or deflating the integrated cuff. The resulting pressure in the finger sensor corresponds to the real arterial pressure.

Hemodynamic insights

Based on the pulse contour analysis, NICCI analyses the pressure curve and derives parameters providing valuable information about the blood flow, preload, afterload as well as contractility.
