Overview

 
TDQ | Continuous Cardiac Output (CCO) Catheter

TDQ provides accurate CCO measurements, as well as Central Venous Pressure (CVP), Pulmonary Artery Pressure (PA) and Pulmonary Artery Occlusion Pressure (PAOP) parameters. TDQ also allows for venous and mixed venous blood sampling and pulmonary artery temperature measurement.

The TDQ Catheters are part of a complete line of pulmonary artery catheters offered with no natural rubber latex components in order to reduce the risk of patient latex allergy or hypersensitivity, without compromising performance.

A recent study of antilatex IgE antibodies in blood donors has shown that the prevalence of latex sensitivity may be as high as 6-12%1 or up to 37 million people in the U.S. alone.
