Adult Regional Oximetry

FORE-SIGHT adult regional oximetry sensor placement body diagram.
FORE-SIGHT gives the clinician great flexibility in sensor placement, and its exclusive algorithm is tailored to account for the individual anatomical differences of adult patients, as well as neonates and children.

FORE-SIGHT sets the standard for cerebral oximetry with the most accurate and precise measure of oxygen levels in your patient’s brain.  We provide reliable real-time information that empowers surgical teams to make informed intervention decisions throughout surgery.  Superior sensor design, a patented algorithm, and an intuitive and easy-to-read interface set FORE-SIGHT apart from the rest of the marketplace.

Sensor

FORE-SIGHT’s superior sensor design generates a depth of light penetration of up to 2.5cm – a full half centimeter deeper than any other tissue oximetry sensor. With studies of adult CT scans showing that up to 30% of the population may have scalp to cortex distances of greater than 2 cm, FORE-SIGHT is the obvious choice for any adult patient.

Wavelengths

The precision and accuracy of FORE-SIGHT ELITE is enhanced by incorporating industry-best 5 wavelengths of near infrared light to analyze the tissue, providing the broadest spectrum of NIRS wavelengths (690, 730, 770, 810, 870nm) to optimize tissue interrogation at the points where oxygenated and deoxygenated hemoglobin are more greatly distinguished – further contributing to our best-in-class accuracy.

Algorithm

FORE-SIGHT’s algorithm, which compensates for patient tissue properties and is tailored to specific tissue beds, has been rigorously validated and is the most important part of what makes our readings so accurate, we call them “absolute.” No trending, no baselines. Simply the most accurate reading of your patient’s tissue oxygenation in real time.

Interface

FORE-SIGHT’s intuitive graphical user interface is housed in a color touchscreen that features one-button startup, large numeric displays, seamless connectivity to EMR and AIMS, and the ability to display up to 4 simultaneous channels of tissue oximetry. The interface provides adult- and pediatric user modes, as well as the ability to select tissue-specific sensor locations.
