Flashback Technologies is commercializing a new vital sign with broad applications in healthcare and human performance – The Compensatory Reserve Index (CRI). Early stage commercialization is underway with two FDA cleared devices. Due to innate compensatory mechanisms, it is well known that humans are able to lose up to 20% of central volume (due to hemorrhage or dehydration) with little change in standard vital signs – until the patient suddenly and oftentimes unexpectedly experiences cardiovascular collapse, when resuscitative therapy is less effective and more difficult to control. Its non-invasive, easy-to-use vital sign monitor trends changes in intravascular volume and estimates an individual’s tolerance to additional volume loss before collapse. Compared to traditional vital signs, CRI provides early insight that enables intervention that can reduce costs, improve outcomes and save lives.
