Therapeutic Areas


FAST BioMedical’s technology could give doctors a baseline volume status to help quickly guide fluid resuscitation and volume management in an effort to avoid volume overload post-surgery. Over seven (7) million ICU patients receive fluid resuscitation annually. Improving volume management by using FAST BioMedical’s technology could also aid in preventing hospital acquired AKI (acute kidney injury). Patients which develop hospital acquired AKI have 2.4x length of stay and 5x mortality rate.

Yes, because for the post-op heart patients all of them get forced diuresis as early as post-op day one. I know one of the problems we run into is renal dysfunction because of that.
