The BPM provides insight for therapy by giving real-time and contextual trend data. In neurological applications observing absolute levels of cerebral blood flow (CBF) alerts clinicians to the onset of swelling induced ischemia and the onset of vasospasm. Managing CBF levels is key to reducing injuries secondary to initial trauma. With this type of critical information a clinician is able to react and evaluate the effectiveness of the administered therapy in real-time.
The BPM is easy to set up and operate. The system does not require zeroing or calibration, thus giving the clinician more time with their patient. The large display allows observation of the current values as well as review of the data trends.
