Sydney, NSW, Australia –Sydney based Applied Physiology announced today that it has signed an agreement with Philips Healthcare to pilot the NavigatorTM cardiovascular decision support system in intensive care units (ICU) at leading hospitals in Europe and Australia.

The purpose of the pilot is to evaluate the performance and utility of NavigatorTM as a standalone device, and as a decision support application embedded into the Philips IntelliVue MX800 bedside patient monitor.

Navigator™ is a hemodynamic monitoring package that simplifies the management of critically ill patients. A bedside clinical decision support system, Navigator performs the complex calculations required to evaluate a patient’s circulatory state. The system provides continuously updated calculations of circulation volume, blood vessel muscle control and heart function, in patients who require careful circulatory control.

Results of the pivotal trial demonstrating the safety and efficacy of NavigatorTM were recently published in the Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Journal in March 2011, “Computer based haemodynamic guidance system is effective and safe in management of postoperative cardiac surgery patients”.
