There are over 700 maternal mortality related deaths every year in the U.S. alone, with postpartum maternal hemorrhages as a leading cause.1 The Joint Commission and The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommend hospitals implement stage-based hemorrhage protocols based on blood loss thresholds.2,3 Most hospitals still rely on visual estimation of blood loss, which can cause inaccuracies of 30-55%.4
Triton combines the power of A.I. with the simplicity of a mobile device to deliver accurate blood loss during delivery and postpartum care as compared to gravimetric or visual estimation.4
better hemorrhage detection than visual estimation5
Reduction in delayed hemorrhage intervention6
hemorrhages detected with AI-enabled, real-time blood loss monitoring7
annualized cost avoidance from unnecessary transfusions and lab tests6
According to The Joint Commission, retained surgical sponges (RSS) have consistently been the #1 Never Event for 10 consecutive years.1 This serious incident impacts hospital systems, staff, and patients, yet despite policies and procedures changing, the issue persists.
We think it is time to put an end to retained surgical sponges because we are committed to patient safety. Together, with you, Stryker is all in on a journey to enable zero RSS. Can we count on you?
Sponges are the #1 retained surgical item in the OR.2
1 in 11 cases have a missing sponge.3
Four thousand times a year, a patient has the unexpected outcome of a retained surgical sponge.4
On average, it takes 10 minutes to find a missing sponge.5
women in the U.S. die every year from pregnancy or childbirth-related causes.1
