(Hemodynamic and Oxygen Transport Monitoring & Management Systems)
HOTMAN® System has both the FDA 510(k) marketing approval and CE-Certification.
HOTMAN® - Integrated Hemodynamic Management System
As the era of stand-alone monitors for individual cardiodynamic and/or hemodynamic parameters ends (such as blood pressure monitor, pulse oximetry monitor,...), complete systems for assessment, monitoring and management of hemodynamics and oxygen transport dynamics are emerging. HEMO SAPIENS' HOTMAN® Systems are a clear harbinger of this profound change. However, HOTMAN® Systems not only assess and monitor a patient's complete hemodynamics and oxygen transport dynamics, they also enable both the hemodynamic management (therapeutic correction of the system-identified hemodynamic causes of abnormal hemodynamics) and hemodynamic therapy modeling (prediction of hemodynamic changes to take place as a result of an on-screen application of cardioactive and vasoactive drugs).
HOTMAN® System is technologically, hemodynamically, economically and clinically more advanced than its alternatives - CardioDynamics' BioZ, Philips ICG Monitor and Analogic's LifeGard - afterall, these competitive products are just ICG monitors and offer no hemodynamic management capability:
The Modular HOTMAN® w/ EXT-TEBCO Module, consists of a notebook and an external TEB module EXT-TEBCO® (with the HOTMAN® communication protocol). This System also includes a color printer and the textbook "Systemic Hemodynamics and Hemodynamic Management."

Different softwares of HOTMAN® Systems have been developed to enable hemodynamic assessment, monitoring and management of the entire patient population spectrum. The following table describes at one glance the types of HOTMAN® Systems available (classification by gender and age), with a detailed description following:
HOTMAN® N/P (Neonatal/Pediatric) System is used
for neonatal and pediatric patients ( newborn to approximately 15 years of age).
HOTMAN® BAS (Basic software) System is used for all adult men and postmenopausal women.
HOTMAN® PRG (Pregnancy) is used for women in child bearing age (both for gravidas and nongravidas).
A proprietary hemodynamic and oxygen transport assessment, monitoring,
management, modeling, storage and telemedicine/communication HOTMAN®
software makes every system operator-friendly.
The software of all HOTMAN® Systems has a Full Graphics Capability, providing a capability to display patient's data in four separate patient data screens:
(a) rapid noninvasive hemodynamic assessment, plus continuous monitoring complete hemodynamics,
(b) hemodynamic and perfusion flow management,
(c) modeling hemodynamic effects of cardioactive and vasoactive agents, and
(d) trending up to 6 parameters in time.
Any HOTMAN® System can be operated either in a "All Noninvasive Data" mode, or in "Invasive Data Available" mode:
for adult males and postmenopausal females
for neonatal/pediatric patients (birth to 15 years)
for women in child bearing age (nongravidas) and during pregnancy (gravidas)

HOTMAN® SYSTEM PATIENT INTERFACES
(a patient connection to noninvasive cardiac output and blood pressure modules)
Acquisition of cardiodynamic data (blood flow & left-ventricular performance) and respiratory parameters in all HOTMAN® Systems is automatic and operator-independent.
It just takes several minutes to attach the patient
to the HOTMAN® System and to obtain complete hemodynamic and oxygen
delivery data noninvasively. This feature makes it especially suitable for
rapid assessment of hemodynamics in the emergency medicine. It is a comprehensive
clinical tool for a long-term patient monitoring, management and follow-up in the
operating room and critical care setting. And it is an invaluable tool in a cardiologists's/internal
medicine specialist's office for management of hypertension and congestive heart
In addition to complete hemodynamic monitoring, all HOTMAN® Systems provide the hemodynamic management information, identifying the hemodynamic causes of abnormal hemodynamics.
For telemedicine applications, the four digitized analog signals and the digital values of up to 22 parameters are continuously transmitted via the RS-232 serial port and/or the external modem to an Internet/Intranet/computer network. Each HOTMAN® System has a server/client telemedicine capability. Therefore, a master-slave system can be configured to provide a low-cost second monitor capability, such as for operating rooms or for teaching purposes.
HOTMAN® software provides for such a rate of compression/decompression of data, that a standard RS-232 serial line or a telephone line via a modem can be used for real-time communication, producing undistorted images of the monitoring/management/trending/modeling screens. In addition, the client can view patient data stored on the server.
To learn more about the novel concepts in systemic hemodynamics and the basics of hemodynamic management, implemented in the HOTMAN® System, go to Hemodynamics in a Nutshell or find a detailed explanation in the textbook.
- Preoperative hemodynamic assessment in a matter of minutes, especially the volemia
- Perioperative and postoperative monitoring and management of hemodynamics
- Continuous monitoring of complete hemodynamics + real-time hemodynamic management in critical care results in significant savings when compared to current trial-and-error management methodology and/or relying on invasive procedures
- Home Health Care hemodynamic monitoring and management
- Rapid assessment and management of hypertension
- 24-hour Holter monitoring of complete hemodynamics
- Sleep studies
- Cardio-pulmonary laboratory evaluation
- Sports medicine
- Wellness Centers and preventive cardiovascular care: maintenance of health
- Complete hemodynamic monitoring during patient transport
- Fertility Clinics
- Male impotence centers
- Establishing vectorial effects of cardio- and vasoactive drugs and/or drugs with a cardio- or vasoactive effects
Whereas some medical systems enable management
of patients' data,
the HOTMAN® Systems enable the management of patients
