Retia Medical, LLC, a medical device company focused on transforming the practice of critical care by making accurate hemodynamic data available and affordable for use at every bed, today announced that it established a Clinical Advisory Board comprising experts in the fields of anesthesiology and critical care medicine.

The Clinical Advisory Board will provide insights into the design of clinical trials for the company’s lead product, the Retia Argos Cardiac Output Monitor, development of additional algorithms to improve hemodynamic monitoring and support peer-to-peer educational initiatives that increase patient access to potentially life-saving hemodynamic monitoring technologies.

The company also announced that it will preview the Argos Monitor at ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2018, the annual meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiology, which is taking place in San Francisco, October 13 -17.

Retia Medical was founded to address a real unmet clinical need for accurate and affordable hemodynamic data, and insights from the clinicians who use these monitors are critical components of our approach to innovation.”

Marc Zemel, CEO and Founder, Retia Medical

The members of the Retia Medical Clinical Advisory Board are:

  • Benjamin A Kohl, M.D., FCCM – Dr. Kohl is Chief of Critical Care Services at Jefferson Northeast and Vice Chairman of Critical Care and Chief, Division of Critical Care in the Department of Anesthesiology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

His clinical and research interests are Enhanced Recovery and Perioperative Medicine, with particular interests in fluid management, and perioperative optimization of high-risk non-cardiac surgery.

Dr. Miller is an associate editor for Anesthesiology and Analgesia and Perioperative Medicine, a board member of the Perioperative Quality Initiative (POQI), and a founding member and President-Elect of the American Society for Enhanced Recovery.

  • Michael O’Connor, M.D. – Dr. O’Connor is an anesthesiologist intensivist at the University of Chicago.  He is the section head of Critical Care Medicine in the Department of Anesthesia and the Director of Critical Care Medicine at the University of Chicago Medical Center.

His practice in the intensive care unit (ICU) has included the Burn ICU, Surgical ICU, Medical ICU, and Cardiothoracic ICU. He has a longstanding interest in the physiology of the circulation and the evaluation of unstable patients. He has a wide range of clinical research interests that have spanned both the operating room and the ICU.

The members of our Clinical Advisory Board have already made substantive contributions to the development of the Argos Monitor and we look forward to working with them as we continue to develop novel algorithms that improve the accuracy of hemodynamic monitoring technologies.”​
