VolumeView system

A view in volumetrics and fluid management.

The VolumeView set from Edwards Lifesciences in combination with EV1000 clinical platform enables the display of valuable volumetric parameters in a meaningful way. Delivered via the EV1000 clinical platform's Visual Clinical Support, the VolumeView set is able to offer you a unique, clear, visual depiction of patient physiologic status—including extravascular lung water (EVLW).

Intended for use in monitoring your acutely ill patients, the VolumeView set when used with the EV1000 monitor, provides informative volumetric parameters (EVLW, PVPI, GEDV and GEF) that can be used specifically in the treatment of pulmonary edema, acute lung injury (ALI) or acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The volumetric parameters are provided via transpulmonary thermodilution (TPTD). The VolumeView system is indicated for use in critical care patients in which cardio-respiratory function, fluid status, and vascular resistance need constant and/or intermittent assessment. The femoral arterial catheter is indicated for femoral artery insertion.

The VolumeView set also provides valuable, continuous, calibrated hemodynamic parameters (CO, SV, SVR, and SVV) via a patented Edwards proprietary VolumeView system algorithm. This algorithm provides continuous trending between calibrations of these key hemodynamic parameters based upon shape variables. These parameters can also be calibrated through manual, intermittent transpulmonary thermodilution.

VolumeView System

The VolumeView set is comprised of the VolumeView sensor, the VolumeView femoral arterial catheter and the VolumeView thermistor manifold.

Clinical application

VolumeView set parameters

The VolumeView set provides a view of volumetric and fluid management parameters. 

Critically ill patients often deal with imbalances of oxygen delivery and consumption which can lead to organ dysfunction or possibly death.

The clinician is faced with evaluating:
  • physical assessment
  • laboratory analysis
  • non-invasive monitoring
  • invasive monitoring

Determining if an imbalance exists and how to best treat it.

Hemodynamic parameters

  • CO - Calibrated Cardiac Output
  • SV - Calibrated Stroke Volume
  • SVR - Systemic Vascular Resistance
  • SVV - Stroke Volume Variation
  • SVI - Stroke Volume Index
  • MAP – Mean Arterial Pressure
  • SYS – Systolic Blood Pressure
  • DIA – Diastolic Blood Pressure

Volumetric parameters

  • EVLW - Extravascular Lung Water
  • PVPI - Pulmonary Vascular Permeability Index
  • GEDV - Global End Diastolic Volume
  • GEF - Global Ejection Fraction

Product implementation

The EV1000 clinical platform now offers perspective on guiding volume administration and works with the VolumeView set to reduce variability and help you keep your patients in the optimal volume range, while supporting your Perioperative Goal-Directed Therapy (PGDT) compliance. The latest visual clinical support screens available on the EV1000 clinical platform enable you to maintain your patients in the optimal volume range and reduce volume administration variability. Time-In-Target facilitates Perioperative Goal-Directed Therapy (PGDT) compliance, helping the you to track and manage key parameters, and create and monitor customized protocols.

The VolumeView system is able to offer you a unique, clear, visual depiction of patient physiologic status—including extravascular lung water (EVLW).

The VolumeView set from Edwards Lifesciences allows you to access the necessary information needed to manage the critically ill patient in the ICU:

  • The VolumeView sensor provides continuous and calibrated hemodynamic information.
  • The femoral catheter provides volumetric parameters through intermittent transpulmonary thermodilution. The catheter properties and how it is packaged offer optimal conditions for easy and quick insertion.
  • The thermistor manifold enables bolus injection (closed system to record injectate temperature and to record start of injection).
