Senzime wins US order with an initial value exceeding 1 million SEK
Press release: Uppsala March 24, 2022. Senzime announces today that the company has won an order from a large American academic healthcare system in the upper Midwest. This is a three-hospital facility affiliated with a School of Medicine. The order includes TetraGraph systems with associated disposable sensors at an initial order value exceeding SEK 1 million.
All operating rooms at the hospitals are equipped with TetraGraph systems. At the same time, the surgical protocol is standardized for patients who receive muscle-blocking drugs with a requirement that these will be monitored. The hospitals annually perform around 11 000 surgeries where these drugs are administered. Future recurrent TetraSens sales will be in addition to the initial order.
“Most hospitals today continuously and objectively measure critical parameters such as heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen levels and depth of anesthesia. Paralytic management should of course be measured with the same degree of accuracy. It is encouraging to see that more and more hospitals are standardizing objective monitoring of this vital function.”, says Pia Renaudin, CEO of Senzime
