| ||The FloTrac system is a practical, reliable, and minimally-invasive solution that provides dynamic and flow-based hemodynamic parameters through an existing arterial line. These parameters can be used in Perioperative Goal-Directed Therapy (PGDT) protocols to hemodynamically optimize your moderate to high-risk surgery patients. || |

The FloTrac System 4.0:
Reliable in more patient conditions and procedures
The FloTrac system 4.0 algorithm update helps advance patient care by providing more clarity and reliability in a greater number of procedures and patient types, helping clinicians to make more informed decisions.
- Expanded patient database includes more diverse clinical situations and procedures in moderate to high-risk patients
- Cardiac Output (CO) tracks more closely with patient physiology
- Enhanced Stroke Volume Variation (SVV) filters out irregular heartbeats found in patients with most arrhythmias
- High signal fidelity and secure authentication between sensor and monitoring platform supports patient safety
The FloTrac sensor uses a sophisticated algorithm to calculate a robust set of parameters to give for clarity into your patients changing condition. The latest enhancement evolves the algorithm using an expanded patient database that informs the algorithm to recognize and adjust for more patient conditions – including hyperdynamic conditions.
EV1000 clinical platform and Vigileo monitor
The FloTrac sensor may be used with the EV1000 clinical platform
or Vigileo monitor
to continuously measure and display key flow parameters. The EV1000 clinical platform presents the physiologic status of the patient in an entirely new, intuitive way, and also works with the PreSep oximetry catheter
Why Hemodynamic Optimization?
Fluid balance plays a critical role in monitoring a patient's hemodynamic status. Both administering too little or too much fluid can lead to serious patient complications.1,2
Conventional hemodynamic monitoring parameters (HR, MAP, CVP, and PAOP) are often insensitive and sometimes misleading in the assessment of circulating blood volume. By monitoring additional flow directed parameters, the clinician is able to gain insight to guide fluid management during changing patient conditions.3,4
Enhance Surgical Recovery through Hemodynamic Optimization
An extensive body of clinical evidence demonstrates that hemodynamic optimization through Perioperative Goal-Directed Therapy can make a difference in your patient’s post-surgical recovery. 5,6,7
Edwards provides a range of monitoring options that can be used in Perioperative Goal-Directed Therapy (PGDT) protocols to hemodynamically optimize your moderate to high-risk surgery patients. All monitoring options provide the clarity to make more informed decisions.
