Arab Health

Arab Health Convention 2018

Quantium Medical will be attending Arab Health in the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition center (DWTC), from Monday 29th of January to Thursday 1st of February, where they will exhibit their monitors “Conox” and “qCO”, and their “qCON OEM” Board in the Fresenius Kabi stand (H2 C30).

Our objective is to develop non-invasive methods to monitor the patient, allowing the exchange more efficiently, reduce the risk and increase their comfort. Conox is an anesthetic depth monitor manufactured by Quantium Medical and distributed by Fresenius Kabi since 2017. The same monitoring solution can also be made on boards “qCON OEM”, designed to be integrated into a multiparameter monitor. The cardiac output “qCO” monitor completes our product range, estimating blood flow through an impedance signal.

Arab Health is the largest gathering of healthcare and trade professionals in MENA region (Middle East and North Africa). There will be more than 4.200 world’s healthcare companies coming from more than 150 countries. Moreover, 40 pavilions can be visited to see the best that each nation offers.

Additionally, Arab Health features 19 conferences dedicated to leadership and continuous medical education imparted by international speakers covering the broad vision of the most spoken medical specialities and disciplines today.

Conox is going to Massachussets, USA in October

The Conox is the only monitor measuring both hypnotic and analgesic effect. This innovative monitor helps to detect if the patient should have awareness during their anaesthesia. It also prevents from too deep anaesthesia which could cause Post Operative Cognitive Dysfunction (POCD).

The American Society of Anaesthesiologists annual congress will take place from October 21st to 25th in Boston. Conox will be highlighting on the Anaesthesia Monitoring department with Fresenius Kabi and Quantium Medical.

“ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2017 returns to the city where modern anaesthesia was born, Boston. On October 16, 1846, the world of medicine was forever changed when William T.G. Morton administered the first anaesthetic for a successful surgical procedure at Boston’s Massachusetts General Hospital. Be at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center on October 21-25 to take full advantage of five information-packed days of learning, networking and discovering the latest in anaesthesia.”

You will find Conox on the Fresenius Kabi booth number 1617.

Monday 16th October 2017 is World Anaesthesia Day

As you may know Monday 16th October 2017 is World Anaesthesia Day. This year it will be celebrating through the #CountMeIn! campaign. Count Me In! is an initiative to unite anaesthesia providers to raise awareness and support for scaling-up “human resources for anaesthesia”.

The WFSA’s recently launched Global Anaesthesia Workforce Map highlights the anaesthesia workforce shortage crisis. 70 countries had a total anaesthesia provider density of less than 5 per 100,000 population. Without adequate numbers of staff it will be impossible to scale-up anaesthesia provision worldwide, and impossible to ensure safe anaesthesia for all patients.

For more information on the campaign you can download the #CountMeIn! Toolkit, and for resources in Spanish and French please visit the World Anaesthesia Day webpage.

Conox® has a positive feedback in Vienna

The European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM) held its 30th Annual Congress in the Austria Center Vienna (Vienna, Austria).

Fresenius Kabi presented a wide range of products designed for the use in Intensive Care Units and operating rooms. Our depth of anaesthesia monitor, Conox, was part of the exhibition.

During the four days, doctors and other healthcare worldwide professionals came to inform and give us their positive feedback on their experience with Conox.

From here we want to thank you for your welcome and interest.

We will continue to care for life,

Successful Euroanaesthesia Genève 2017

Euroanaesthesia 2017 (the European Anaesthesiology Congress) took place in Genève, Switzerland from 2nd to the 4th June and Quantium Medical was actively present in both the scientific and the exhibitor areas. We are grateful for the attention we received.

 

During the whole congress, Doctor Gambús (clinical expert in the use of electroencephalogram as a measure of anesthetic drug effects, Hospital Clínic de Barcelona) presented the Conox® depth of anesthesia monitor at the Fresenius Kabi’s booth. Conox® comprises cutting edge hardware and digital signal processing technology to measure the two main components of anesthesia by using one single sensor based on the EEG: the hypnotic component with qCON index, which correlates to hypnotic endpoints, and the analgesic component with the qNOX index, which correlates to the predicted concentrations of remifentanil and to the likelihood of movement response to nociception.

We would like to thank all visitors for their time and interest. We will certainly continue working to offer you the best parameters and products for non-invasive patient monitoring.

Quantium Medical’s Excellent Performance in the Industrial PhD Programme Trainings Recognised

In 2014, Quantium Medical participated in the prestigious Industrial PhD Programme from the Government of Catalonia (AGAUR DI-2014) and M.Eng. Jesús Escrivá Muñoz started a thesis on Advanced Signal Processing Techniques for Bioimpedance Signals. Our efforts during the last two years of intense work continue to be rewarded since then. Last week, we were notified that our participation in the Transversal Skills Training, a part of the Industrial PhD Programme, placed first due to our excellent performance. “This is another proof of the considerable effort we continuously invest in our staff development and in our research projects”, says Erik Weber Jensen, Chief Scientific Officer and Chief Executive Officer at Quantium Medical.

CE Mark for the Conox

Fresenius Kabi Receives the CE Mark for the Conox Monitor.

Fresenius Kabi, a global healthcare company that specializes in medicines and technologies for infusion, transfusion and clinical nutrition, has received the CE Mark for the Conox depth of anesthesia monitor.
Conox is a non-invasive depth of anesthesia monitor designed to help anesthesiologists monitor patient brain activity and to rapidly detect how anesthetics are affecting the patient. The Conox anesthesia monitor comprises cutting edge hardware and digital signal processing technology to measure the two main components of anesthesia: the depth of anesthesia and the patient’s reaction to external stimuli. The qCON index of hypnotic effect and the qNOX index for responsiveness are derived from one forehead sensor recording the EEG. The Conox monitor features an innovative design with easy to use graphical interface, touch screen display and easy to apply sensors.

Conox was developed by Barcelona-based Quantium Medical S.L.U., which was acquired by Fresenius Kabi last year. Quantium Medical is a dynamic company focused on the development of non-invasive physiological monitoring and biosignal data processing.
“Quantium Medical’s non-invasive monitoring competence is an excellent fit for Fresenius Kabi with its anesthetics I.V. drugs and infusion technology. The new Conox device will provide high-quality anesthesia monitoring and enhance our solution offering in the operating room and intensive care units,” said Dr. Christian Hauer, President, Medical Devices Division, Fresenius Kabi.
”The acquisition opens a lot of opportunities for Quantium Medical and the employees of the company to bring world class science into innovative medical products with solutions previously unheard-of,” said Erik Weber Jensen, CEO of Quantium Medical
Fresenius Kabi expects to begin offering the Conox monitor in February 2017.
