The AxTIVA is an application to assist the anesthesiologist during Total Intravenous Anesthesia (TIVA) or TIVA (Total Intravenous Anesthesia) that is characterized with the sole administration of intravenous agents.
The AxTIVA allows the entire total intravenous anesthesia in any infusion system to behave as total intravenous anesthesia target-controlled (Total Intravenous Anesthesia Target Controlled Infusion / TIVA-TCI), advising the anesthesiologist in time where the rate of administration of the solution must program the infusion device. This application emulates the pharmacokinetic model drug, continuously calculating and recalculating the required amount of solution to be infused to achieve the desired effect, thus promoting adaptation of the dose in each context, providing only the necessary amount of the drug, giving the surgical patients the benefits of a modern anesthetic technique, secure, accurate and rapid emergence of low cost.
The AxTIVA usage is very simple!
On the home screen, you enter patient characteristics and choose between dilutions of opioids (remifentanil or sufentanil) and hypnotic (propofol).
Done, simply click the button to be taken to TIVA screen ‘Induction’ with drug doses to be infused in bolus, as calculated for the characteristics of the informed patient.
In the ‘Maintenance’ you can navigate with a simple slide of the finger by the concentrations and infusion rates which will be advised at the right time .
After clicking on the ‘Start’ button the application passes the time, the procedure and calculates the right dose and time to change the infusion rate to the desired solution. In time the certain AxTIVA beeps, and / or mechanic that is currently changing the rate of administration of the solution in the infusion device.
Section ‘adjuvants’ presents you with a complete list of drugs recommended doses for bolus and infusion, expected effects and precautions to assist and enhance the Total Intravenous Anesthesia.
In ‘References’, you will always have an updated list of sources based techniques that develop the app and serve as a source of knowledge for Total Intravenous Anesthesia -Target Controlled.
The app also allows you to change the concentrations of the solutions, units of measurements and the whole plan of Total Intravenous Anesthesia, with Target Controlled be shared by e-mail to other users.
If you need to put the application in the background to access another application or answer a call, the AxTIVA continues its monitoring TIVA-TCI and advises at the right time with a message on the home screen that you need to change the rate of infusion of the opioid chosen or hypnotic chosen.
