New Study Compares Two Methods of Guiding Goal-Directed Fluid Therapy, Noninvasive Masimo PVi® and Invasive Esophageal Doppler

Jaa

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today the findings of a study recently published in BMC Anesthesiology in which researchers at University Hospital Linköping, Sweden, compared the performance of goal-directed fluid therapy (GDFT) using invasive esophageal Doppler to GDFT using Masimo PVi® (pleth variability index, measured noninvasively and continuously using SET® pulse oximetry sensors) in patients undergoing major abdominal surgery.1

Noting the value of GDFT in aiming to determine “the optimal amount of fluid for an individual patient,” Dr. Hans Bahlmann and colleagues sought to compare the effects of two methods of GDFT, stroke volume optimization guided by invasive esophageal Doppler (control group) and fluid optimization guided by noninvasive PVi (intervention group), on patients who were scheduled for open abdominal surgery lasting two or more hours. The effects compared were incidence of complications and length of hospital stay.

The researchers collected data from 146 patients who had surgery between November 2011 and January 2015, who were randomly divided into the two groups. In the intervention group, PVi was noninvasively and continuously measured with a Masimo Radical-7® Pulse CO-Oximeter® with software version 7.8.0.1 and SET® sensors. After an initial fluid bolus (given to all patients irrespective of PVi value), a fluid bolus was given if PVi was ≥ 10%, repeated at 5 minute intervals until PVi fell below 10% or did not decrease at all. In the control group, esophageal Doppler measurements were performed using a Deltex Medical CardioQ apparatus. After an initial fluid bolus, Doppler measurement was performed after 5 minutes and fluid boluses were repeated until stroke volume did not increase by 10%, in accordance with published protocols.

Observers blinded to each patient’s group assessed complications for 30 postoperative days using a pre-specified list of complications, as well as length of hospital stay. The researchers found that noninvasive PVi and invasive Doppler performed with no statistical difference, with similar incidences of complications and lengths of stay between the two groups. In the intervention/PVi group, there were 64 complications (corresponding to 51% of patients), with a median length of stay of 8.0 days (interquartile range [IQR] 8.0 days). In the control/Doppler group, there were 70 complications (corresponding to 49% of patients), with a median length of stay of 8.0 days (IQR 9.5).

The researchers concluded, “No difference in clinical outcome, as defined by number of postoperative complications, and length of hospital stay, was found when goal-directed fluid therapy was applied using PVi as an alternative to esophageal Doppler. PVi appears to be an acceptable alternative to esophageal Doppler for goal-directed fluid therapy during major open abdominal surgery.”

In discussing other PVi-related clinical studies, the researchers also noted that “Based on these reports and our findings, a clinician wishing to pursue GDFT can choose PVi over esophageal Doppler in the large majority of patients undergoing major open abdominal surgery. PVi, in contrast to esophageal Doppler, is not sensitive to interference from diathermy and does not require frequent access to the patient’s head for probe repositioning. Also, PVi can be measured without single-use equipment, avoiding the cost for single-use esophageal probes (USD 130 in our setting). However, as illustrated by the request for Doppler data in two PVi patients, the clinician might still want to have access to a reliable method for measuring intraoperative cardiac output to increase the amount of hemodynamic information during unusually complex situations or in cases of known vascular and/or myocardial dysfunction.”

As a study limitation, the researchers noted the absence of a control group with neither PVi nor Doppler guiding fluid therapy, and therefore “it is not possible to tell whether PVi and Doppler both result in similar improvements in outcome, or whether neither method improves outcome when compared to treatment without GDFT.” They also noted that because of determining sample size using a 10% difference in the number of complications at 30 days, “the study was not powered to detect smaller albeit still significant differences in postoperative outcome.”

PVi has not been cleared by the FDA to assess fluid responsiveness.

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) is a global leader in innovative noninvasive monitoring technologies. Our mission is to improve patient outcomes and reduce the cost of care. In 1995, the company debuted Masimo SET® Measure-through Motion and Low Perfusion™ pulse oximetry, which has been shown in multiple studies to significantly reduce false alarms and accurately monitor for true alarms. Masimo SET® has also been shown to help clinicians reduce severe retinopathy of prematurity in neonates,1 improve CCHD screening in newborns,2 and, when used for continuous monitoring with Masimo Patient SafetyNet™ in post-surgical wards, reduce rapid response activations and costs.3,4,5 Masimo SET® is estimated to be used on more than 100 million patients in leading hospitals and other healthcare settings around the world,6 and is the primary pulse oximetry at 9 of the top 10 hospitals listed in the 2018-19 U.S. News and World Report Best Hospitals Honor Roll.7 In 2005, Masimo introduced rainbow® Pulse CO-Oximetry technology, allowing noninvasive and continuous monitoring of blood constituents that previously could only be measured invasively, including total hemoglobin (SpHb®), oxygen content (SpOC™), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), methemoglobin (SpMet®), Pleth Variability Index (PVi®), and more recently, Oxygen Reserve Index (ORi™), in addition to SpO2, pulse rate, and perfusion index (Pi). In 2014, Masimo introduced Root®, an intuitive patient monitoring and connectivity platform with the Masimo Open Connect® (MOC-9®) interface, enabling other companies to augment Root with new features and measurement capabilities. Masimo is also taking an active leadership role in mHealth with products such as the Radius-7® wearable patient monitor, iSpO2 ® pulse oximeter for smartphones, and the MightySat™ fingertip pulse oximeter.

China National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) Approves Gilead’s Vemlidy® (Tenofovir Alafenamide) for Chronic Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) Infection19.11.2018 06:00Tiedote

Gilead Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: GILD) announced today that the China National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) has approved Vemlidy® (tenofovir alafenamide, TAF) 25 mg, a once-daily treatment for chronic hepatitis B in adults and adolescents (aged 12 years and older with body weight at least 35 kg). Vemlidy is a novel, targeted prodrug of tenofovir that has demonstrated antiviral efficacy similar to Gilead’s Viread® (tenofovir disoproxil fumarate, TDF) 300 mg but at one-tenth of the dose. Data show that because Vemlidy has greater plasma stability and more efficiently delivers tenofovir to hepatocytes compared to Viread, it can be given at a lower dose, resulting in less tenofovir in the bloodstream. In clinical trials, Vemlidy demonstrated improved renal and bone laboratory safety parameters compared to Viread. “With the approval of Vemlidy, physicians can now offer their patients a treatment that retains the efficacy of TDF while improving renal and bone safety parameters in cli

Celltrion Healthcare: Biosimilars Have the Potential to Deliver Dramatic Cost Savings for US and European Healthcare Systems19.11.2018 03:01Tiedote

Celltrion Healthcare outlined their vision of ‘shaping future healthcare by improving access to biosimilars’ at the 5th Annual Biosimilars USA Conference in New Jersey, US. Biosimilars offer healthcare providers and patients greater treatment choice and value, better access to treatments and improved patient outcomes. According to data provided by IMS Health, biosimilars could lead to cumulative savings of up to 107 billion USD by 2020 in the United States (US) and the top five European Union (EU) countries.1 The EU has made significant progress in unlocking the potential of biosimilars through continuous education of providers, payers and patients. This has been critical to EU biosimilar acceptance but has not been seen in the US, which has lagged behind. During a presentation on the opportunities and challenges presented by the use of biosimilars in the US, Celltrion Healthcare highlighted several challenges affecting the uptake of biosimilars within the US market. Both physicians an
