Precise Pressure Monitoring Made Simple

For a clinician, the need to make quick, split-second decisions is constant, and deciding on the best course of action is often determined by the availability of accurate data.

Patient assessment and monitoring critically depends on accurate, quantifiable data. Are you getting the information you need to make the right decisions for your patients quickly enough? The sterile, compact Compass helps healthcare workers navigate clinical paths with indisputable, physiological pressure readings, giving confidence to the treatment pathway.

Diagnosing and treating life-threatening conditions relies on time-sensitive, dependable data. Yet some of the popular methods currently being used to get information are cumbersome, time consuming, or inaccurate. Such methods can take control away from the clinician. Compass disposable pressure transducers provide digital pressure measurements in an instant to help clinicians with quantitative direction for proper treatment courses.

Compass eliminates the set up complexities and inaccuracies of other traditional pressure transduction systems. The easy-to-use, single-use, sterile Compass is  versatile to a wide range of clinical applications requiring pressure monitoring.

Typical applications where Compass is being used are:

  • Compartment Syndrome 
  • CVP for Sepsis Management
  • Central Line Insertion
  • Intra-Abdominal Pressure
  • Lumbar Puncture
  • Thoracentesis
  • Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta – REBOA

Instantaneous Accurate Pressure Measurement

You have the skills, the support team, and the experience. But are you getting the information you need to make the right decisions for your patients quickly enough? And is the information 100% accurate?

Delays, inconclusive test results, information that varies with each measurement, or with each person who takes the reading. It can all create dangerous situations for physicians and their patients. Some of the popular methods currently being used to get information are underperforming, inaccurate, or fail completely. Such methods put patients in harm’s way, and physicians and hospitals can be sued because of poor outcomes.

What are some of the most common shortcomings?

When central lines are inserted, inadvertent arterial cannulations can occur. Even when ultrasound guidance is employed, arterial cannulations still occur up to 1% of the time.

With septic patients, every hour treatment is delayed, the risk of death increases 7.6%. 2 Cardiac ultrasounds and capillary assessments use up precious time and carry a high degree of subjectivity.

Treatment delays and misdiagnosed compartment syndrome can result not only in unnecessary fasciotomies and amputations, but potentially expensive lawsuits.

Manometers – commonly used during lumbar punctures – are cumbersome and time consuming. They require two people to operate, and they fail up to 20% of the time.

Compass is the solution to your patients.

The sterile, single-use Compass – for sepsis, central line insertion, lumbar puncture and compartment pressure – provides a simple, precise, indisputable digital pressure reading instantly. Now you can be confident you’ll make the right decision.

Good for you, great for your patients.
