Clinicians rely on hemodynamic monitoring technologies—including pressure transducers, vascular catheters, and monitoring computers—to effectively manage their critically ill patients. These devices allow for the real-time assessment of hemodynamic and cardiovascular status to help guide clinical decision-making. Accordingly, the reliability of these monitoring devices is essential.
Our critical care devices and systems have been clinically proven to provide clinicians with accurate, real-time access to patients' hemodynamic and cardiovascular status. Our extensive portfolio of critical care catheters, disposable pressure transducers, and multiparameter hemodynamic monitors offers clinicians the tools they need to effectively manage their patients in the operating room, ICU, and other critical care settings—providing reliable patient data when it is needed most.
Transpac® Pressure Transducers
Transpac disposable pressure transducers provide accurate and reliable real-time blood pressure measurements to help clinicians effectively manage their critical care patients.
Ease of Use:
Color-coded lines for easy identification when measuring multiple parameters.
Clear fluid pathway facilitates priming.
Available with SafeSet™ blood conservation system.
Real-time Accuracy & Reliability:
TriOx™ 3-Wavelength Oximetry Catheters
TriOx Pulmonary Artery and Central Venous Catheters provide real-time tissue oxygenation status that may help clinicians initiate early goal-directed therapies (EGDT) in trauma, sepsis, congestive heart failure, and cardiac arrest patients.
Filters artifact caused by cell orientation, vessel wall reflections and changes in pH.
Exclusive light intensity signal helps to identify proper placement of fiber-optic tip to ensure accurate readings.
Allows clinician to optimize oxygen supply and demand in cases of severe sepsis or septic shock.
CardioFlo™ Hemodynamic Monitoring Sensor System
The CardioFlo Sensor System works with the Edwards Lifesciences Vigileo™ monitor and connects directly to an existing arterial catheter.
In laboratory and live subject testing, the level of agreement between the hemodynamic data provided by the Edwards Lifesciences FloTrac™ and the ICU Medical CardioFlo sensor systems was within one percent.
Combined results showed the average absolute percentage difference between the systems was 0.30 percent for arterial pressure and 0.36 percent for continuous cardiac output.
The CardioFlo system exceeds accuracy requirements set by the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI).
Q2 Plus™ CCO/ SvO2 Monitor
The Q2 Plus CCO/SvO2 Monitoring Computer provides enhanced usability, greater accuracy, and faster responses to changes in cardiac output.
Large, color-coded screen information allows clear communication of data, while large input keys provide convenient inputting of information.
Faster response to changes in cardiac output,1 especially under conditions of high thermal noise, results in more timely and accurate CO information.
User-selected signal processing modes allow you to configure the system to meet specific needs. All four modes are designed for reliable, accurate CCO measurements by offering different levels of thermal noise artifact rejection and response time.
Exclusive Quality Signal Indicator (QSI) communicates, at a glance, how robust the CCO output is in relation to thermal background noise, providing an indication of the signal's quality.
