Based on the results obtained from the ANI technology on the monitoring of non-communicating adults patients, 3 more years of research and development were necessary to give birth to the NIPE index (Newborn Infant Parasympathetic Evaluation). The NIPE technology enables the evaluation of the parasympathetic part of the autonomic nervous system of newborns, from premature to the age of 2 years, from the electrocardiogram provided by the multi parametric monitor.
The FIRST comfort assessment monitoring system for neonates
The NIPE technology enables an objective and continuous measurement of the parasympathetic component of the Autonomous Nervous System in babies and young infants. The unique technology has efficacy proven to work with extremely premature babies from around 26 weeks gestation through to infants up to two years of age and is based on the electrocardiogram taken from the patient monitor in use.
The level of parasympathetic tone is correlated to the infant’s discomfort and wellbeing, giving an objective measure.
