Blood volume measurement is severely underutilized. The company has recognized that in order to achieve its goal of making blood volume a standard of care incorporating its unique technology, it needs to obtain the services of individuals with extensive experience in medical marketing. The company has already retained the services of some individuals with expertise in this area and will have further announcements in the near future with respect to these changes.
