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.”
