Project Title: Rapid and Accurate Blood Volume Determination
Company Contact: Dr. Theodore Hobbs, Oregon Health and Sciences University, and QuantiPort, Inc.
QuantiPort, Inc. is developing a point-of-care medical device that quickly, accurately, and safely measures blood volume. Blood volume is an important physiological parameter in the assessment of blood loss due to trauma, major surgery, or GI ulceration. Results are expected to be generated within minutes and may be repeated several times an hour to allow assessment of ongoing blood loss or to assess the effects of therapeutic interventions such as blood transfusion. The QuantiPort device is intended to provide physicians with diagnostic power to save more lives and reduce health care costs for millions of patients.
