NUTRITION MANAGEMENT ICU SYSTEM
Powered by AI personalized ICU management system based on nutrition needs.
It is the end-to-end solution that detects and prevents most common life-threatening hospital-acquired complications that affect ICU patients.
Gastrointestinal intolerance goes undiagnosed for extended periods of time because of limited insights we have into the GI tract.
The use of sensor-based feeding tubes.
The sensors detects and log the natural history of the patient’s reflux events.
The algorithm processes the data collected by the sensors and enables the system to take immediate and automatic actions to prevent aspiration.
The data also provides a solid premise from which clinical decisions can be made.
Feeding tube position confirmation using X-Ray or stomach inflation / suction comes with side effects and causes feeding delays.
Initial position guidance and continuous position verification.
The sensors detect the position of the feeding tube and guide the medical staff to reposition the tube when the tube is out of position. The system pauses feeding and alerts the clinician when the feeding tube is out of position.
Gastric residual volume (GRV) is drained unmeasured from the patient and in most cases, the lost nutrition is not compensated.
The system automatically calculates the total nutritional losses, in the event when feeding is paused or evacuated. The system will manipulate the delivery rate to reach the patient’s nutritional target.
Manual calculations of resting energy expenditure (REE) using caloric predictive equations are considered inaccurate. The recommendations to use these equations were removed from the latest ESPEN guidelines.
Continuous resting energy expenditure (REE) calculations.
The patient is continuously monitored by the system, which provides the initial nutrition target as well as an updated REE throughout the patient’s recovery.
The calorie deficit is not compensated with additional feeding due to lack of human resources as well as concerns of inducing aspiration and Ventilator-associated Pneumonia (VAP).
A dual port feeding delivery system (nutrition & fluid), featuring an anti-clogging mechanism for the feeding tube.
Two delivery programs are integrated into the total nutrition plan, ensuring that the basal rate is constant and the patient is not overloaded with liquids that may induce a reflux event.
Late detection of decreased kidney function that usually leads to Acute Kidney Injury (AKI).
