Blood Volume Measurements Improved Survival

Prospective randomized control in which 100 critically ill surgical patients with septic shock, sever sepsis, severe respiratory failure, and/or cardiovascular collapse were evaluated. Mean APACHE II scores were comparable across both study arms, at 25 (BVA=50) vs. 24 (conventional, n=50) (p=0.16). All patients underwent BVA testing; physicians were blinded to BVA results for the control group, which was conventionally managed by pulmonary artery catheter (PAC).

   Hypervolemia present in 48% control vs. 37% BVA

   RBC deficiency present in 33% control vs. 16% BVA

   Control group mean delay in transfusion of 1.5 ± 2 days

   PAC did not reliably correlate with volume

66% reduction in mortality

For the BVA group, 44% of test results led to a change in treatment strategy

“An important aspect of care was the earlier treatment of intravascular volume deviations in the BVA group, before the abnormality became clinically manifested.”

Optimal Volume Management is Key to Survivability

Oxygenation by the lungs and pumping of the heart carries
optimal blood volume to supply oxygen to vital organs.

Blood Volume Measurement Provides Actionable Information to Achieve Optimal Fluid Management

New data in journal Critical Care, N = 6

  BVA identified true volume status vs. clinical exam in 6/6 patients

  50% identified as hypovolemic/anemic

  67% elevated albumin transudation rate

“Fluid resuscitation in COVID-19 patients could benefit from knowing the blood volume and capillary leak rate of patients as they are subject to significant leak and related hypovolemia.”

Knowledge of volume status avoids dangers of under and over resuscitation, ensuring fluid treatment interventions in accordance with measured volume derangements.

FAQs

How does BVA help manage patients with Respiratory Distress, Sepsis/Septic Shock & ARDS?

BVA precisely measures total blood volume and red blood cell volume with 98% accuracy, guiding an effective, patient-specific fluid management strategy for optimal results.

What is the benefit of knowing the Albumin Transudation Slope?

Albumin Transudation Slope provides the rate at which the albumin transudates out of circulation through the capillary bed. A rate of approximately 0.25% per minute is considered normal. In a patient with increased capillary permeability, this rate may increase.

Is the BVA test FDA-cleared and available now?

The BVA test is FDA-cleared with over 45,000 tests used to date to assess blood volume in a network of hospitals across the U.S.
