Assurance Biosense has developed a simple, highly-effective single-point-of-contact sensor that can reliably monitor critical parameters under challenging conditions for all patients1
, improving patient safety by overcoming the shortcomings of legacy pulse oximetry and providing clinicians an early warning of impending events.
The Assurance® Alar Sensor
is the next generation of pulse oximetry. The sensor is attached to the nasal ala, the fleshy part of the side of the nose, a unique monitoring site for pulse oximetry. This site is fed by both the external and internal carotid arteries; the latter also supplies blood to the brain. The rich vascular supply to the ala provides a strong, reliable signal, even when it is difficult to get a signal at the fingertips.

Future Assurance products
will also monitor a broad range of physiologic parameters – critically needed cardiorespiratory parameters that are not currently available from any other non-invasive technology.
