cardiac output monitor
The FloTrac system automatically updates advanced parameters every 20 seconds, reflecting rapid physical changes in moderate to high-risk surgery. Advanced hemodynamic parameters provided by the FloTrac sensor offer you continuous insight to more accurately determine your patient’s fluid status. The minimally-invasive FloTrac sensor connects to any existing arterial catheter.
An integrated hemodynamic monitoring system
The FloTrac sensor integrates with the Edwards EV1000 clinical platform to show patient status at a glance, for visual clinical support and increased clarity in volume administration during moderate-high-risk surgical procedures.
The value of advanced hemodynamic parameters
troke volume optimization (SV) 4–12
Stroke volume measurement with the FloTrac system* enables an individualized approach for administering fluid until SV reaches a plateau on the Frank-Starling curve, to help prevent hypovolemia and excessive fluid administration.
Stroke volume variation optimization (SVV) 13
For control-ventilated patients, SVV has proved to be a highly sensitive and specific indicator for preload responsiveness, serving as an accurate marker of patient status on the Frank-Starling curve.
Oxygen delivery optimization (DO 2 with CCO) 14
Continuous cardiac output (CCO) measured by the FloTrac system can be used (in combination with SaO 2 and hemoglobin) to monitor and optimize DO 2 with fluid (including red blood cells) and inotropic agents.
