CENTRAL VENOUS CATHETER
Continuous ScvO2 monitoring – The clarity in an early warning of oxygen imbalance.
Edwards oximetry central venous catheter – the first proven central venous catheter with continuous ScvO2 monitoring – reveals the true adequacy of tissue oxygenation for clarity in early assessment and intervention.1–5 By providing a more sensitive indicator of oxygen imbalance, Edwards oximetry central venous catheter identifies critical changes earlier than traditional vital signs and intermittent sampling – enabling you to recognize and prevent tissue hypoxia sooner.1–5
Helps guide therapy and provide real-time insight into the efficacy of intervention.1,2,6
Continuous ScvO2 monitoring enables proactive management of tissue hypoxia:1–5
- Reveals the root cause of oxygen imbalance, enabling you to determine appropriate therapy early.1,7
- Allows for immediate assessment of patient’s clinical response to therapy.1,2,6
- Helps you stay ahead of tissue hypoxia and stages of sepsis.8–11
Convenient, accurate and easy to use
- Uses same insertion techniques as that of central lines.
- Offers continuous ScvO2 monitoring, pressure monitoring and fluid resuscitation.
- Provides accurate oxygenation status.1
Early assessment with real-time ScvO2 monitoring enables proactive clinical decisions for your high-risk patients.1–5
Continuous ScvO2 monitoring is key to assessing the adequacy of the balance of oxygen delivery and consumption. The goal of continuous ScvO2 monitoring with the Edwards Oximetry Central Venous Catheter is to bring into balance the relationship between oxygen delivery and consumption to help improve the care of high-acuity patients.12
Demonstrated prognostic value of continuous ScvO2 monitoring can be seen in:
- Post-op high-risk surgeries13
- Cardiac failure in congenital heart failure5
- Recovery in cardiac arrest15,16
