PediaSat Catheter (ScvO2)
Continuous ScvO2 monitoring

Continuous monitoring of oxygen delivery and consumption allows for the identification of shock states and provides a real-time guide to the efficacy of intervention.3

Valuable time may be lost before traditional vital signs or intermittent ScvO2 samplings indicate distress – potentially delaying intervention and putting the patient at greater risk.

The PediaSat oximetry catheter is the first oximetry catheter designed for pediatrics that can provide early indication of critical changes in a patient’s clinical condition via continuous, real-time monitoring of oxygen delivery and consumption.1-2

Helps guide therapy and enables early intervention
  • Detect acute changes in systemic oxygen delivery and extraction4
  • Optimize hemodynamic support of pediatric and neonatal septic shock patients in accordance with ACCM-PALS Clinical Practice Parameters5
  • Reduce mortality by 27% in pediatric patients with severe sepsis and septic shock when used with Early Goal-Directed Therapy™ 6
Convenient, accurate and easy-to-use
  • Flexibility to be used via typical pediatric insertion sites including: subclavian, internal jugular and femoral
  • Simple to use – uses same insertion techniques as that of central lines
  • Designed for use with Edwards oximetry monitors and optical cables
