Advanced haemodynamic monitoring without the arterial line
 - Never miss a beat

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

NICCI helps to ensure you never miss a beat.

NICCI - Plug and play hemodynamic monitoring

NICCI is easy to set-up and provides non-invasive continuous hemodynamic monitoring. The results are comparable to invasive arterial line measurements in terms of continuity, accuracy and waveform dynamics.[3]

Parameters provided: APsys, APdia, Mean Arterial Pressure, Pulse Rate, Cardiac Index (CI), Stroke Volume Index (SVI), Stroke Volume Variation (SVV), 
Pulse Pressure Variation (PPV), Systemic Vascular Resistance (SVRI), Cardiac Power Index (CPI) and Left Ventricular Contractility (dPmx)

1. Turn on monitor

Smart design elements make the device easy to clean and prepare for use.

hemodynamic monitoring two finger cuff

2. Attach finger cuff

The two-finger cuff alternates between fingers automatically for improved patient safety. It is ergonomically designed to fit the patient.

NIBP calibration manshette

3. Attach upper arm cuff

The integrated NIBP Module provides automatic calibration during the procedure and is available in several sizes.

4. Calibrate and start

NICCI analyses the pressure curve and derives parameters providing valuable information about the blood flow, preload, afterload and contractility.  

Clinical outcomes supported by continuous haemodynamic monitoring and fluid management

Reduced risk of hypotension

Acute kidney injury and myocardial injury can be caused by even short periods of hypotension and are leading causes of 30-day postoperative mortality. [4],[5]

These hypotension periods might be missed by discontinuous upper arm cuff readings.[4],[5]

Improved fluid management

A more balanced fluid delivery during and after surgery can further reduce the likelihood of post-operative complications.

Even more beneficial is Goal-Directed Fluid Therapy (GDFT), which can reduce patient morbidity by 27.7% and complications by 41.7%.[6]

Fewer days in the hospital

Fewer complications mean patients spend an average of 1.16 fewer days in the hospital.[7]
