TechConnect Innovation Program

Optical Fiber Spectroscopy Device for Noninvasively Measuring Tissue Perfusion

Oregon Health & Science University, Oregon, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

The spectroscopic analysis utilizes the absorption spectra of oxy- and deoxyhemoglobin and optical diffusion theory, incorporating tissue scattering properties and blood absorption to estimate the blood volume fraction and oxygen saturation of hemoglobin of tissues adjacent to and affected by surgery.

Primary Application Area: Medical Devices

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 7

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: The additional patient monitoring will reduce stays in intensive care units, resulting in approximately $3,000 saving per day. Early detection of decreasing oxygenation will increase surgery success rates and patient outcomes.
