Chosen to monitor over 5.2 million patients*
Minimally-invasive hemodynamic monitoring
The minimally-invasive FloTrac system is a proven solution for advanced hemodynamic monitoring that automatically calculates key flow parameters every 20 seconds. Continuous clarity provided by the FloTrac system offers proactive decision support to manage hemodynamic instability and help you ensure adequate patient perfusion.
The FloTrac sensor parameters displayed on the HemoSphere monitor show patient status at a glance, for visual clinical support and increased clarity in volume administration.
Proactive decision support offered by the FloTrac system helps guide individualized treatment decisions for your moderate- to high-risk surgery patients, and can be utilized perioperatively to proactively manage your patient’s physiological status in rapidly changing clinical situations in acute care settings.

The FloTrac system algorithm is based on the principle that aortic pulse pressure (PP) is proportional to stroke volume (SV) and inversely related to aortic compliance. The algorithm compensates for the effects of compliance on PP based on age, gender, and body surface area (BSA).
Through continuous beat detection and analysis, the FloTrac system algorithm allows for the ongoing use of Stroke Volume Variation. The FloTrac system algorithm enables the display and use of SVV in patients with multiple premature atrial or ventricular contractions and allows you to guide volume resuscitation despite most arrhythmias.5,6,7
The SVVxtra algorithm restores the respiratory component of the arterial pressure curve so that SVV continues to reflect the physiological effects of mechanical ventilation on the heart.5

The minimally-invasive FloTrac system offers continuous clinical decision support to enable proactive clinical decisions.
The FloTrac system provides access to advanced hemodynamic parameters allowing you to evaluate hemodynamic instability and guide appropriate treatment.
Studies show associations between intraoperative hypotension and increased risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) and myocardial injury - the leading cause of post-operative mortality within 30 days after surgery.
Advanced hemodynamic monitoring parameters CO, SV, SVV, SVR, and MAP provided by the FloTrac system can help you determine the cause of instability.
If the underlying cause of hemodynamic instability is related to flow generation, continuous parameters provided by the FloTrac system can help you determine appropriate fluid therapy.
Continuous assessment of pressure and flow parameters offers decision support to help manage the duration and severity of intraoperative hypotension episodes.
