Eliminates Need for Visual Estimation by Providing Accurate Estimates of Blood Loss on Surgical Sponges During Surgery.

When I scrub into cases it is often hard to estimate how much blood was lost between the sponges, vacuum suction, and drops. Gauss Surgical just received FDA approval for its Triton Fluid Management System, an iPad app that estimates, via a proprietary algorithm, blood loss in surgical sponges just by looking at them. Looks interesting, I wonder when it’ll be implemented at my hospital?
