"OVERCOMING THE LIMITATIONS OF
CONVENTIONAL HEMODYNAMIIC MONITORING"

Welcome to the MGI Medical Website.
 
MGI Medical has developed the first monitor for non-invasive, continuous
assessment of peripheral blood flow . It was developed for early detection of
blood loss and heart failure. It may have other medical applications as well.

A Note from Dr. Marks, Inventor of the MGI Pulse Flowmeter


"When I was in medical school, I observed a patient bleed to death overnight from an internal occult hemorrhage. This occurred in a university hospital and after only a minor, elective vascular procedure. I was horrified that we did not have a monitor that could prevent this situation from occurring."

"As we know, conventional means for detection of occult hemorrhage (hypotension, decreased urine output, etc.) are, at best, lagging indicators. I have devoted a substantial part of my career looking for ways to assess peripheral flow as an early warning sign for blood loss. This has resulted in the Pulse Flowmeter, which can detect the loss of a single unit of blood in blood donors with no change in BP or heart rate. Preliminary investigations suggest that the Pulse Flowmeter may be useful for a variety of applications where peripheral flow and resistance information is desirable."
