Using the iPad’s camera and algorithms to estimate blood loss in the operating room

Many surgical teams currently use visual estimation to determine blood loss. This can often be an imprecise, and the consequences of overestimating or underestimating blood loss can create patient complications. Gauss Surgical saw an opportunity to improve this system and are now using the iPad as the base of a new method to help track blood loss during surgery in real time.
