Patient with severe septic shock due to intra-abdominal sepsis resulting in death. The DBF curve shows a dramatic decrease at 345 minutes, which preceded the decrease in MAP by 93 minutes. DBF: dermal blood flow; MAP: mean arterial pressure.

The Perichek™ peripheral blood flow monitor features thermally based DermaFlow technology providing a non-invasive, direct, accurate, and sensitive, method for measuring changes in peripheral blood flow.

The advantages of low cost, user-friendliness, accuracy, optimal sensitivity and ability to embed suggest that the Perichek™ system be considered as a first line technology for both clinical and consumer applications.

Designed for integration into any hospital patient monitoring suites, this module incorporates proprietary DermaFlow peripheral blood flow monitoring technology. The module’s output may be displayed along with data generated on the variety of clinical parameters already present in the suite.

Each Perichek™ module services one peripheral blood flow sensor. Two or more modules may be incorporated into the suite should multiple sensor locations be required.

 

 

Perichek Multi™

For those clinical situations where peripheral blood flow monitoring only is required, a Perichek™ Multi module may be formatted as a stand-alone unit including one to four sensors, with the output displayed using DermaFlow software on the device display as well as on an lap-top or PC.
