The AESCULON® lets us take a peek into the electrical activities of the heart through a cable connected to the the four ECG surface electrodes attached to the patient. With only a few cardiac cycles, the AESCULON® is able to analyze and calculate the average values for these hemodynamic parameters:
-Stroke Volume (SV) / Stroke Index
-Cardiac Output (CO) / Cardiac Index (CI)
-Index of Contractility (ICON®) - a dimensionless index representing the peak aortic blood acceleration in the aorta
-Thoracic Fluid Index (TFI) - a dimensionless index representing the thoracic fluids
-Systolic time intervals - the Pre-Ejection Period (PEP), Left- Ventricular Ejection Time (TLVE), or flow time, and the Systolic Time Ratio (STR), i.e. the ratio of PEP and TLVE.
Complete Hemodynamic Monitoring System. The AESCULON™ provides a 12’’ high resolution color display that works as a comprehensive, standalone hemodynamic monitor. It provides a complete hemodynamic monitoring system that provides user-defined hemodynamic parameters. With the help of Masimo’s pulse oximetry chipset, the AESCULON™ is able to measure SpO2 and is equipped with a non-invasive blood pressure cuff, which allows for the measurement of systemic vascular resistance (SVR) with the input of Central Venous Pressure.
Furthermore, the AESCULON™ can be upgraded to include Masimo’s SET rainbow parameters, which measures absolute hemoglobin SpHB™. With the measurement of hemoglobin SpHB™, oxygen saturation SpO2, and cardiac output, the AESCULON™ is able to determine completely continuous and non-invasive measurement of Oxygen Deliver (DO2) and Oxygen Delivery Index (DO2I).
