CARDIac Arrest and Cardiogenic Shock

Each year in the United States, approximately 325,000 sudden cardiac arrests occur outside the hospital, with a survival rate of only 12%. Our comprehensive approach to understanding the pathophysiology of cardiac arrest and cardiogenic shock guides our development of next generation diagnostic tools and therapeutics.

Piezo Ring

The Piezo Ring is a wearable sensor worn on the finger that continuously measures the vascular tone and reactivity of small blood vessels in the finger. Because the smaller blood vessels in the finger respond much faster to signals sent from the brain, the Piezo Ring detects potential cardiovascular events and hypotension much earlier than the traditional arm cuff system.
