New Study Confirms TwitchView® Quantitative Monitor for Neuromuscular Blockade is Comparable to Gold Standard Mechanomyography
Seattle, WA, October 18, 2019 --(PR.com)-- Blink Device Company announced today that a study comparing the TwitchView® quantitative train-of-four (TOF) electromyography-based monitor to accelerometry and mechanomyography has been published in the journal Anaesthesia (https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/anae.14872). The results demonstrate that the TwitchView monitor closely resembles mechanomyography, often considered to be the laboratory gold standard, while accelerometry frequently produces train-of-four ratio values > 1.0, complicating the interpretation of acceleromyography results in the clinical setting.
Montreal—Although peripheral nerve stimulation is commonly used to assess neuromuscular transmission when dosing neuromuscular blocking agents and reversal drugs, quantitative twitch monitors have been shown to be more accurate than palpation for measuring the train-of-four (TOF) ratio.
But which type of monitor—mechanomyography, acceleromyography or electromyography—is most accurate?
New research has concluded that the three techniques have substantial agreement, but electromyography most closely emulates manual palpation and acceleromyography frequently underestimates twitch counts.
Blink Device Company Announces TwitchView™ Quantitative Monitor for Neuromuscular Blockade is Now Compatible with Major Electronic Medical Records
Seattle, WA, June 04, 2019 --(PR.com)-- Blink Device Company announced today that the TwitchView™ quantitative train-of-four (TOF) monitor now integrates with most major electronic medical records (EMR). Commercially available in the United States, Europe, and South Korea, the TwitchView™ neuromuscular TOF monitor uses electromyography (EMG) to provide clinicians with reliable and accurate quantitative TOF data.
Seattle, WA, October 10, 2018 --(PR.com)-- Blink Device Company announced today that it is formally launching TwitchView™, a new quantitative train-of-four monitor for neuromuscular blockade, at the American Society of Anesthesiologists annual conference in San Francisco.
