 Gauss Surgical's Blood Loss Measurement App Gets FDA Nod

The US Food and Drug Administration has given its approval for Gauss Surgical's blood loss measurement app Triton Fluid Management System.

The mobile app can provide accurate and real-time estimation of surgical blood loss on surgical sponges, thereby allowing physicians to accurately estimate intra-operative blood loss.

The app works by using the device camera to scan the surgical sponges for blood and sends the data to a computer through cloud storage. Image processing algorithms then estimate the amount of hemoglobin and blood present on the sponge surface and sends the results back to the OR.

"We identified a critical unmet need for a fast and accurate way to estimate blood loss on sponges in the operating room. By leveraging the power of mobile devices in combination with our proprietary software we're fulfilling that need with the potential to reduce unnecessary transfusions and the associated costs and complications", Gauss Founder and Chief Technology Officer Siddarth Satish said.
