Introducing the ivWatch SmartTouch™ Sensor

A Miniaturized, Disposable Sensor for Continuous IV Site Monitoring

The ivWatch SmartTouch Sensor is with your patients 24/7, providing an extra set of eyes for the early detection of peripheral IV infiltration and extravasation events. The sensor uses visible and near-infrared light to measure changes in the optical properties of the tissue near a peripheral IV insertion site, and notifies clinicians of possible infiltration and extravasation events often hours before they are detectable by visual or tactile examination.1
