The FloTrac system automatically updates advanced parameters every 20 seconds, reflecting rapid physical changes in moderate to high-risk surgery. Advanced hemodynamic parameters provided by the FloTrac sensor offer you continuous insight to more accurately determine your patient’s fluid status. The minimally-invasive FloTrac sensor connects to any existing arterial catheter.
An integrated hemodynamic monitoring system
The FloTrac sensor integrates with the Edwards EV1000 clinical platform to show patient status at a glance, for visual clinical support and increased clarity in volume administration during moderate-high-risk surgical procedures.

- Stroke volume optimization (SV) 4–12
Stroke volume measurement with the FloTrac system* enables an individualized approach for administering fluid until SV reaches a plateau on the Frank-Starling curve, to help prevent hypovolemia and excessive fluid administration.
- Stroke volume variation optimization (SVV) 13
For control-ventilated patients, SVV has proved to be a highly sensitive and specific indicator for preload responsiveness, serving as an accurate marker of patient status on the Frank-Starling curve.
- Oxygen delivery optimization (DO 2 with CCO) 14
Continuous cardiac output (CCO) measured by the FloTrac system can be used (in combination with SaO 2 and hemoglobin) to monitor and optimize DO 2 with fluid (including red blood cells) and inotropic agents.

FloTrac system setup video
This video reviews the steps required to set up and operate the EV1000 clinical platform with FloTrac allowing their patients’ blood pressure and cardiac output to be monitored continuously from a minimally invasive catheter.
The FloTrac sensor is designed to work together with the VAMP Optima closed blood sampling system to consistently maintain patients in the optimal volume range while reducing blood loss from sampling.
The FloTrac sensor with VAMP Optima system allows for continuum of care for hemodynamically unstable patients that require frequent blood sampling in the perioperative setting. When paired with the VAMP Optima system, the sensor kit allows for sampling without discarding the blood, which may reduce blood loss and infection.
- 84 (213 cm) of pressure tubing and two sample sites offer flexibility for OR and ICU use
- Large 12 cc reservoir provides optimized clearing volume
- Safety locking mechanism on the reservoir to prevent autofilling
- Convenient single hand operation for simplified sampling and clearing volume reinfusion
- One step flushing
- Intuitive use and clear user interface with fluid path icons
- nDEHP tubing to limit potentially harmful phthalate exposure
- Two sample site locations allow for sampling outside the sterile field in the OR and close to the patient in the ICU setting
VAMP Optima kits with LASS (Luer Activated Sampling Site) provide the following benefits
- No excessive damping of the blood pressure signal with the rotating handle that can direct the flow away from the valve
- Time and labor saving in blood aspiration mode with a single flush after blood sampling (in comparison with two boluses required with a regular stopcock)
- Minimal blood residues that may help prevent contamination and reduce infection rates
