Non-Invasive Portable Heart Monitor, Monitoring Cardiac Output
NiCaS is a non-invasive solution for accurate monitoring of cardiac output and other vital Haemodynamic parameters in just 20 seconds! This portable heart monitor can be used for 24 hour cardiac output monitoring, from the comfort of the patients own home or in Hospital.
The NICaS system measures parameters in four physiological categories: Cardiac heart rhythm monitor, Vascular, Fluid, and Respiratory.
Whole body Bio-impedance technology, utilised in NICaS is unique and propriety to Ni Medical. The NiCaS algorithms were developed by Ni Medical scientists over more than twenty years of research and validated by extensive clinical testing. Our products are FDA cleared and CE marked.
The Non-Invasive portable heart monitor can be used on heart failure, Hypertension, Dyspnea, CRT Optimisation of Bi Ventricular pacemakers and assessment of LV function.
How it works
NiCaS transmits a small electrical signal through the body via two electrical sensors arranged in wrist-ankle configuration. This calculates the stoke volume by a proprietary algorithm. Cardiac output is calculated by multiplying stroke volume by the heart rate. In addition, NICaS utilises a standard three-lead ECG connection for measuring the pulse rate.
Being a portable heart monitor, its perfect for use at home, that’s not only non-invasive but more importantly accurate!
A New Age in Whole Body Bioimpedance Cardiology:
- Early detection of Congestive Heart Failure, the nations biggest killer
- Accurate drug titration in treating Hypertension – no more guesswork in prescribing the correct drug regime
- Patient monitoring in ICU to complement traditional procedures, or even replace them
- CRT (Pacemaker) Optimisation
NI Medical is the world's leading developer and manufacturer of whole body bioimpedance systems focusing on non-invasive assessment and monitoring of cardiovascular, respiratory and fluid parameters.
