PediaSat oximetry catheter PediaSat oximetry catheter

PediaSat oximetry catheter is the first and only pediatric oximetry catheter with continuous ScvO2 monitoring for proactive management of tissue hypoxia.1-3 Continuous, real-time monitoring of central venous oxygen saturation (ScvO2) offers early recognition of critical changes in oxygen delivery that may not be identified by less sensitive indicators, such as traditional vital signs or intermittent sampling.2-8

PediaSat oximetry catheter

Continuous ScvO2 monitoring

Early warning of oxygen imbalance allows early intervention.2,4,6,9-11

Early indication with continuous ScvO2 monitoring offers you the ability to detect and prevent tissue hypoxia − early− in your complex pediatric patients.2,6,9-11

Continuous ScvO2 monitoring reveals the root cause of oxygen imbalance, enabling you to proactively determine appropriate therapy.2,4,5,7,12 Real-time insight into the adequacy of cardiac output allows immediate assessment of your patient's clinical response to therapy − to help you stay ahead of tissue hypoxia and stages of sepsis.

Continuous ScvO2 monitoring helps guide therapy and enables early intervention:2,4,7

PediaSat oximetry catheter is the first and only pediatric oximetry catheter with continuous ScvO2.

You can use hemodynamics to manage pediatric and neonatal septic shock patients in accordance with ACCM-PALS Clinical Practice Parameters13

PediaSat oximetry catheter offers an early warning for compromised or inadequate oxygen delivery2,4,6,9-11

Continuous measurement of ScvO2 in combination with other surrogates of organ perfusion (vital signs, lactate, etc.) can be used as a reliable monitor of cardiocirculatory function.3

  • Detect acute changes in systemic oxygen delivery and consumption14
  • Identify decreases in systemic oxygen delivery that otherwise would not be identified using intermittent sampling8
  • Evaluate oxygen reserve to decide routine interventions (including suctioning, turning, etc.) to minimize patient compromise and maximize outcome.15

Can optimize hemodynamic management in complex pediatric patients.1,11,15-17

  • Congenital heart disease and other complex cardiac patients1,16
  • Sepsis and septic shock17
  • Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS)15
  • Other high-risk patients11

Convenient, accurate and easy to use.3,12,18

PediaSat oximetry catheter provides:

  • Simplicity and flexibility − uses the same insertion techniques as central lines in typical pediatric insertion sites, including subclavian and internal jugular
  • Continuous ScvO2 monitoring, pressure monitoring and infusion of solutions
  • Accurate oxygenation status1,2
  • Double and triple lumens to monitor and administer solutions
Continuous measurement of ScvO2 can be used as a reliable monitor of cardiocirculatory function.
