Anticipating the release of the NMA module for Compumedics DWL QL software, Neuromon BV has released the so called NMA app for the iPhone.

This app intends to bridge the gap between middle cerebral artery flow velocity parameterisation and clinical interpretation. Basically, sys1, sys2, dias@560 and HR are converted to so-called Z-scores that correct for the effects of ageing. 

Based upon published observations the Z-scores are used for clinical interpretation. Of course, Neuromon BV cannot take the responsibility for clinical decision making and the NMA app should only be seen as support in the process. Treating physicians should always remain vigilant and not use information from the NMA alone to interpret the clinical condition of a patient. Nevertheless, the NMA module brings a new approach to patient assessment on the ICU based upon a new philosophy on cardiovascular physiology.

Find your NMA in the Appstore via this link NMA or alternatively by searching "NMA TCD".
