VitalStream® for Ambulatory Surgery Centers

Drive efficient, safe and cost-effective care with wireless vital signs monitoring

VitalStream is the only FDA-cleared and clinically-validated wireless, wearable continuous blood pressure, cardiac output and vital signs monitor. The compact and portable device uses a low-pressure finger sensor to comfortably monitor your patients from intake through discharge. This enables early intervention for hemodynamic instability and can reduce the risk of complications including kidney injury and heart failure.

VitalStream uses a patented physiological algorithm, Pulse Decomposition Analysis, to analyze the pulse pressure waveform. It has comparable accuracy to an invasive arterial line and has demonstrated agreement that exceeds other commercially available continuous blood pressure technologies.1

Intraoperative hypotension can also impact ASC patients


Approximately 31% of ASC cases have a MAP <65 mmHg for at least 15 minutes.2


Spot checked blood pressure can lead to delayed event recognition, treatment and therefore adverse clinical outcomes.5

Even brief periods of hypotension are harmful during surgery.3-5

Group 34

Continuous hemodynamic monitoring has been shown to nearly half the amount of intraoperative hypotension.6

Why VitalStream for ASC patient monitoring?


Enhance patient safety by quickly detecting potential complications with continuous real-time data.
