Etiometry presented a second abstract at the PCICS International Meeting for “Inadequate Oxygen Delivery Index (IDO2) as a Predictor of CICU Length of Stay”. This project demonstrates evidence that babies who spent more time with elevated risk of inadequate oxygen delivery as represented by our Etiometry IDO2 Index require more resources and time to recover.

Algorithms Powered by Risk Analytics are available as add-ons to our T3 Visualization & Data Aggregation software. The first in our family of Risk Analytics Algorithms to receive FDA clearance is the IDO2 Index Powered by Risk Analytics for Neonates. This algorithm continuously assesses patient-specific risk of inadequate delivery of oxygen by computing an IDO2 Index that reflects the likelihood that a patient is experiencing inadequate oxygen delivery at any given time.

An increasing IDO2 value means there is an increasing risk of inadequate oxygen delivery and attention should be brought to the patient. The IDO2 Index is computed based on multiple physiologic measures and laboratory tests results collected by T3 Visualization & Data Aggregation, and it is solely indicated for use for post-surgical neonates with weight above 2 kg.

The analysis looked at a large cohort of close to 500 babies post-cardiac surgery, and presents one of the largest studies in this extremely vulnerable patient population. It demonstrates a potential opportunity that our IDO2 Index presents for improving clinical management by providing actionable information for patient deterioration.
