ProAQT Technology

ProAQT Technology

Optimized Fluid Management

Your navigator in perioperative hemodynamic management

Overview

Reliable interpretation of the patient‘s hemodynamic status in the OR

ProAQT is one component of the PulsioFlex monitoring concept. Based on over 20 years of research with the PiCCO pulse contour algorithm, ProAQT allows reliable and physiological interpretation of the patient‘s hemodynamic status. The ProAQT technology supports goal directed therapy and allows the review of interventions to assess their success.

 

Within minutes the monitoring range can be expanded to include variables such as blood flow, volume responsiveness, afterload and contractility.

The ProAQT sensor is simply integrated into the existing blood pressure measurement system.

 

Advantages

  • Recognise instability, make the right decision - earlier!
  • Easy setup using the existing arterial-line
  • Manual calibration with a reference cardiac output possible
  • Based on PiCCO pulse contour algorithm
  • Integrated signal LED increases safety

Useful application in

  • Perioperative hemodynamic optimisation of high risk patients or high risk procedures
  • Assessment of therapy effect
  • Early recognition of unstable patients
