Medsteer, with offices in Paris/France (HQ) and New York/USA, is a leading technology provider in the field of closed loop systems for the delivery of anaesthesia drugs. The company’s patented technologies focus on drug delivery solutions guided by the cortical activity of the patient.
Providing full automation and customization to the individual patient’s needs, closed loop anaesthesia opens up the way to a wide array of patient benefits associated with personalized medicine.
EasyTIVA is a patented technology delivering full automation in the dosage of Propofol and Remifentinal. EasyTIVA is a mature technology validated by a broad and solid base of patient inclusions across numerous multicenter clinical trials (over 15 000). Both the induction and the regulation are supported for all patients and all surgeries.
Non-invasive disposable sensors on the forehead of the patient provide real-time information about the cortical activity.
Using the real-time cortical activity, the brain monitor delivers a depth of anaesthesia index. This is often represented by a value between 0 and 100.
EasyTIVA can operate with various brain monitor systems available on the market. Main suppliers are Medtronic, GE Healthcare.
Leveraging the depth of anaesthesia index, EasyTIVA uses its patented algorithm to deliver full automation in the dosage of Propofol and Remifentanil during the entire surgery.
Using regular syringe pumps into a closed loop architecture, the exact amount of anesthesia drugs are delivered to the patient at the right time, duration and flowrate.
Since 2006 we have been engaged in 25 clinical trials around the world which have been documented in a large number of scientific publications.
