Our team was commissioned to lend physicality to an innovative, blood monitoring algorithm that had only existed on a small set of printed circuit boards. The device would need to noninvasively calculate and display heart rate, SpO2 and the Compensatory Reserve Index (CRI). CRI is a breakthrough hemodynamic parameter that provides real-time, noninvasive indication of changes in intravascular volume relative to the individual patient’s response to blood loss.
