FDA approves GE's automated anesthesia tech

GE Healthcare received FDA approval for its End-tidal Control software that semi-automates general anesthesia delivery on March 17, according to an April 4 press release.

The software, which delivers general anesthesia on its Aisys CS2 Anesthesia Delivery System, allows providers to set targets for end-tidal oxygen and anesthetic agents. Once set, the software achieves and maintains those targets regardless of hemodynamic and metabolic status changes.

"Anesthesia providers in the U.S. will have access to the most advanced anesthesia tools available to improve patient care," Eric Ruedinger, general manager of GE Healthcare's anesthesia and respiratory care business said in the press release. "As the long-standing global leader in anesthesia delivery, GE Healthcare invested in the development and clinical validation of this Et Control algorithm, and we are committed to creating clinically relevant solutions that will enhance anesthesia practices into the future."

With this FDA approval, GE Healthcare will launch the Aisys CS2 Anesthesia Delivery System with Et Control in the U.S in the coming months.
