Understand complex hemodynamic conditions
The life of your critically ill patient depends on the right decision for the next therapeutic step. Therapeutic conflicts often arise at the critical care bedside, where you need dependable information you can trust. A set of reliable hemodynamic parameters can help determine the best individual treatment for your patients.
Individualize therapy strategies
Intensive care patients often come along with an unstable hemodynamic condition. Unclear volume status and therapeutic conflicts, makes it harder to implement an appropriate therapy strategy: Volume expansion? Vasopressor use or inotropic support?
Sufficient organ perfusion and optimal tissue oxygenation are of great importance. Simultaneously, it is essential to avoid volume overload, which can result in pulmonary edema and interrupted gas exchange.
Advanced hemodynamic monitoring has, therefore, a vital role in the implementation of life-saving therapeutic strategies .
Asses your patients' full hemodynamic picture
Monitoring the cardiocirculatory function is of great importance in intensive care patients. PiCCO allows for minimally invasive measurement of hemodynamic parameters like cardiac output, and it's determinants: preload, afterload, and contractility. Furthermore, the ELWI parameter allows a sensitive assessment of extravascular lung water. This set of reliable hemodynamic parameters can help determine the best individual treatment for critically ill patients.
Assess sufficient liver function
In liver resection and transplantation it is key to assess liver function in time. Let our solution for non-invasive liver function monitoring help you to do the assessment at the bedside and to select the optimal therapy for your patient.
Maintain adequate oxygen balance
Your patient's vital organs are highly sensitive to hypoxic episodes. We offer easy-to-use insight into your patient's oxygen metabolism with solutions for continuous oxygen balance monitoring.
Identify your patients' risk level continuously
A summary of hemodynamic parameters at a glance, as well as the interaction of threshold values, enables immediate and targeted adjustment of treatment. Being continuously updated on any changes in the patient’s hemodynamic condition helps to adjust therapy strategies tailored to each patient.
