Choose the level of monitoring you need for each patient from
comprehensive portfolio of Swan-Ganz PACs.
When used with a compatible cardiac output computer, Edwards’ broad portfolio of Swan-Ganz PACs
allows you to choose the hemodynamic
parameters, functionality and features you
require to achieve the accuracy1 you need to
help guide your treatment strategy.
The first flow-directed Swan-Ganz PAC
revolutionized the understanding of heart
failure and heart attacks.2 Today, our extensive
portfolio of PACs offers you a choice of
monitoring capabilities to meet clinical
challenges in the OR, ICU or Cardiac Cath lab.
Choose the hemodynamic parameters and degree of monitoring to meet your clinical preference
and specific patient needs. Your options range from solutions for monitoring only, to thermodilution,
oximetry or pacing PACs, to our most advanced technology CCOmbo V catheters.
Target complex patient conditions
Edwards’ Swan-Ganz advanced technology PACs offer a comprehensive hemodynamic profile
delivered by a single catheter, to help clinicians assess cardiovascular function and guide treatment
decisions. Advanced hemodynamic parameters provided include continuous cardiac output
(CCO) and mixed venous oximetry (SvO2), in addition to right ventricular ejection fraction (RVEF)
and right ventricular end diastolic volume (RVEDV), to allow continuous monitoring of the balance
of oxygen delivery and consumption. Since SvO2 is considered one of the earliest indicators of a
threat to tissue oxygenation3,4, continuous SvO2 monitoring may alert clinicians to a change in the
patient’s condition sooner than conventional monitoring methods.
