Stay ahead of critical moments

In the ICU, you're there at patients' most vulnerable moments, monitoring every change in condition. The rapidly changing and complex nature of the critically ill requires continuous information to help guide the patient through the continuum of care. Advanced hemodynamic monitoring can aid you in the treatment of patients by providing information during the course of critical illness.

Hypotension management

Hypotension is a significant contributor to myocardial injury and the development of acute kidney injury (AKI) in the ICU. Studies suggest that up to 36%1, 2 of patients in the ICU develop AKI. Correcting arterial hypotension is essential to restore blood pressure and provide adequate cellular metabolism, which is the primary goal of resuscitation.

Acumen Hypotension Prediction (HPI) software, Acumen IQ sensor

The Acumen Hypotension Prediction Index (HPI) software

The first-of-its-kind predictive decision support software that detects the likelihood of a patient trending towards a hypotensive event* before the event occurs, and provides you with insights to understand the root cause and inform a potential course of action for your patient.

Acumen IQ sensor

Unlocks the Acumen Hypotension Prediction Index software. Attaches to any existing radial arterial line and when connected to the HemoSphere monitor automatically calculates key parameters every 20 seconds. In addition to existing advanced hemodynamic parameters, the Acumen IQ sensor delivers Acumen HPI, a predictive monitoring parameter for hypotension.

Parameters

CO/CI | PR | SV/SVI | SVR/SVRI | SVV/PPV | MAP | HPI | Eadyn | dP/dt

*A hypotensive event is defined as mean arterial pressure (MAP) <65 mmHg for at least one minute
Perfusion optimization

Advanced hemodynamic parameters provide access to continuous pressure and flow parameters providing valuable insight into the adequacy of perfusion. Dynamic parameters can help identify the most appropriate initial therapy, such as helping you decide between volume administration versus initiation of vasopressors.

ClearSight cuff, FloTrac sensor, VolumeView sensor, Swan-Ganz pulmonary artery catheter

Note: Review monitoring system manual for technology compatibility

ClearSight system

Provides advanced hemodynamic parameters and continuous noninvasive blood pressure (BP) from a finger cuff. For patients in which the balance between cardiac function, fluid status and vascular resistance needs continuous assessment as well as patients with co-morbidities for which hemodynamic optimization is desired and invasive measurements are difficult.

Parameters

CO | SV | SVV | SVR | MAP

FloTrac system

The minimally-invasive FloTrac system is a proven solution for advanced hemodynamic monitoring that automatically calculates key flow parameters every 20 seconds. Connects to an existing arterial catheter and offers monitoring for a broad range of changing patient conditions. The FloTrac system provides access to pressure and flow parameters to help you evaluate hemodynamic instability and guide appropriate treatment.

Parameters

CO/CI | SV/SVI | SVR/SVRI | SVV/*PPV | MAP

*PPV available on Acumen IQ sensor. Also available when using the FloTrac sensor on upgraded HemoSphere monitoring platform.

VolumeView system

Intended for use in monitoring your critical care patients, the VolumeView set 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).

Parameters

CO/CI | SV/SVI | SVR/SVRI | SVV I EVLW/EVLWI I GEDV/GEDI I PVPI

Swan-Ganz pulmonary artery catheter

The Swan-Ganz pulmonary artery catheter with advanced monitoring capability provides a single, integrated hemodynamic profile for the most complex patients. It allows you to continually assess flow, pressure and oxygen delivery and consumption, to assist your early evaluation. For a continuous view of cardiac function that can enable earlier intervention in your critically complex patients, choose the parameters that best suit your clinical approach and your patient's need.

Parameters

CO/CI | SV/SVI | SVR/SVRI | RVEF | SvO2 | CVP | PAP | EDV/EDVI

Tissue oximetry management

Tissue oxygen (StO2) desaturation events are not uncommon in the cardiac and surgical ICU's. For the most critically ill patients requiring extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), tissue oximetry monitoring may help allow early identification of cerebral desaturations and limb ischemia.3,4

ForeSight Elite tissue oximetry system

ForeSight Elite tissue oximetry system

ForeSight Elite sensors deliver accurate performance and precision in tissue oximetry. The system incorporates exclusive technology to project near infrared light in five precise wave wavelengths. A highly accurate, precise, and tailorable tissue oximetry system for continuous monitoring.

Parameters

Sepsis and shock management

Shock is common. 1/3 of ICU patients suffer some form of shock.5 ICU patients presenting with shock have a nearly 40% risk of death.5 Hemodynamic measurements, like those provided by the ClearSight system, the FloTrac sensor, or the Swan-Ganz catheter working with an advanced monitoring platform, can provide clinical insight into a patient’s cardiovascular function to guide decision- making.

ClearSight cuff, FloTrac sensor, Swan-Ganz pulmonary artery catheter

ClearSight system

Allows continuous assessment of your patient's physiological needs, to help you recognize sepsis and determine fluid responsiveness. The ClearSight system is a simple noninvasive technology that connects quickly to the patient over the finger and provides continuous real-time advanced hemodynamic information.

Parameters

CO | SV | SVV | SVR | DBP | MAP

FloTrac sensor

The sensor seamlessly connects to any existing arterial line and when connected to the HemoSphere monitor automatically calculates key flow parameters every 20 seconds. The FloTrac system provides access to advanced hemodynamic parameters allowing you to evaluate hemodynamic instability and guide appropriate treatment.

Parameters

CO/CI | SV/SVI | SVR/SVRI | SVV/PPV | MAP

Swan-Ganz pulmonary artery catheter

The Swan-Ganz pulmonary artery catheter with advanced monitoring capability provides a single, integrated hemodynamic profile for the most complex patients. Measurements of mixed venous oxygen saturation (SvO2) may also be helpful in assessing the adequacy of the balance between oxygen demand and supply. Using a PAC is recommended by the American Heart Association. This is recommended to be done early in the treatment course during cases of diagnostic or therapeutic uncertainty, or in patients who are not responsive to initial therapy.

Parameters

CO/CI | SV/SVI | SVR/SVRI | RVEF | SvO2 | CVP | PAP | EDV/EDVI

Pressure Monitoring and Blood Conservation

You can make a difference in your patients’ outcomes by incorporating evidence-based closed blood sampling (CBS) procedures into your hospital’s patient blood management program. CBS is demonstrated to more effectively conserve blood, improve patient outcomes and reduce costs when compared with conventional blood sampling procedures.6-9

TruWave pressure transducers, VAMP closed blood sampling
