thermodilution catheter / arterial / pulmonary
Area of the body:
The CCO catheters continuously monitor cardiac output.*
The following parameters are available through the CCO catheters*: Continuous Cardiac Output (CCO), Stroke Volume (SV), Systemic Vascular Resistance (SVR), Right Atrial Pressure (RAP), Pulmonary Artery Pressure (PAP), Pulmonary Artery Occlusion Pressure (PAOP)
When used with a compatible monitoring platform, CCO catheters allow for continuous calculation and display of cardiac output.
The Vigilance II monitor uses thermal energy emitted by the thermal filament located on the catheter to calculate cardiac output using thermodilution principles.
Alternatively, cardiac output can be measured using the traditional bolus thermodilution method.*
