Clarity RMS

Clarity RMS™ is a critical care monitoring system that continuously measures urine flow, automatically transmitting to the medical staff real-time data, and alerts of fluctuations, on a 24/7 basis. This information, which reflects changes in renal function, provides an early sign of AKI risk and facilitates rapid intervention. In addition, it is invaluable for monitoring treatment efficacy and managing fluid balance.

The Clarity RMS Electronic Sensor

easily connects to a Foley catheter, where it continuously and reliably measures critical fluctuations in urine flow.  In addition, real time core body temperature can be measured, when used with a temperature-sensing Foley catheter, to extend the range of diagnostic parameters for patient screening and risk assessment.

The Clarity RMS Intelligent Alarm System

alerts the medical team as soon as the patient’s urine flow rate is below the threshold set by the user for urine output (ml/kg/hour), based on the RIFLE, AKIN, and KDIGO criteria.

The Clarity RMS Console –

Embedded technology in this battery-powered* bedside monitor continuously calculates and transmits real-time data from the sensor directly to all hospital information systems, simultaneously displaying it graphically onscreen.
*provides 15 days of continuous power

How it works

 

Clarity RMS: Real-time data from bedside to clinicians

High Usability

Cordless and battery-operated; Integrates seamlessly with ICU bed setup

Reliable data

Accurate, direct readings of urine flow at catheter entry point; No miscalculations due to airlocks and dead volume in tubing or bag movement

Automatic Measurements

No manual intervention or risk of contamination; Not subject to human error

Open Architecture

Full connectivity and transmission of real-time patient data to hospital information systems, plus remote diagnostics and Tele-ICU

Clinical Trials

We recently completed a prospective trial in 40 hospitalized patients with a urinary catheter in the General ICU at Hadassah Hospital, Jerusalem, Israel.

Hourly electronic measurements of urine flow by the Clarity RMS were compared to hourly manual measurements of urine output by the nursing staff and by a scientific scale (for reference).

Analysis of 1000 study hours showed that electronic measurements with the Clarity RMS were more consistent, reliable and accurate than nursing records. In addition, the study highlighted the weakness of serum creatinine levels as an accurate measure of kidney function.

The study conclusions emphasized the importance of Clarity RMS for identifying AKI and facilitating timely fluid management.

A multi-center study is planned for early 2017 in the United States.
