The BVA-100 is a
semi-automated Blood Volume Analyzer used in conjunction with a single-use
diagnostic kit. It is the first instrument to provide rapid direct measurement
of a patient's blood volume.
measurements have been available for almost 60 years. The test often required 4
to 8 hours to perform and was very difficult to perform accurately. Because of
this, blood volume measurements were rarely obtained. Physicians have been
forced to rely on "surrogate" or substitute tests , such as hemoglobin or
hematocrit which only measures the thickness of blood. Such tests can be highly
misleading in many surgical and medical situations.
The BVA-100 can
measure blood volume in approximately 1.5 hours. In an emergency, preliminary
results can be obtained within half an hour. In addition to accurately measuring
a patients blood volume, the BVA-100 also determines each individual patients
normal blood volume and compares the measured volume to that patients norm.
For the first time,
physicians have access to technology which enables them to obtain blood volume
measurement rapidly and with a high degree of precision. Blood volume
measurements can be instrumental in diagnosing and determining appropriate
treatment for a number of acute and chronic medical conditions.
