Advanced Patient Monitoring

Personalized perioperative
fluid management

 

Why we believe in a tailored monitoring approach

As much as patients differ from each other, monitoring needs can also vary from patient to patient. Therefore, a customized approach to intraoperative fluid management should be applied to control, track, and observe hemodynamics in a broad range of surgical patients.[1]

In an aging population with increased comorbidity, hemodynamic monitoring has become even more critical today to optimize perioperative fluid management.[1] Close monitoring of hemodynamics during anesthetic induction, surgery and postoperatively is proven to prevent adverse outcomes.[2]

Blood flow monitoring for fluid management

From blood pressure to blood flow, volume responsiveness, systemic vascular resistance, and cardiac contractility: advanced hemodynamic monitoring enables the development of therapeutic strategies for volumetric, inotropic, and vasoactive drug management to optimize tissue perfusion.[1],[3]

Studies confirm:
improved outcomes through intraoperative
fluid management

Numerous studies document that intraoperative individual goal-directed fluid therapy improves outcomes after surgery and has a beneficial input on hospital costs.[2],[4],[5] Additionally, the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocols recommend individualized intraoperative fluid optimization through hemodynamic monitoring.[6]

Perioperative fluid management lowered risks of comoplicaitons

A lack of perioperative management among high-and medium-risk surgical patients not only demonstrates the potential to cause cardiovascular complications but also can increase the risk of developing neurological complications, kidney damage, and even mortality.[1],[2],[3]

 

Yet even basic interventions in healthy patients carry the risk of complications such as hypotension. One of the most important vital signs of patients, the blood pressure, should also be continuously monitored as an indicator of the patient’s condition.[7],[8]

 

The importance of early detection of
perioperative hypotension

Although it is difficult to find consensus on what constitutes intraoperative hypotension, studies clearly show that maintaining an intraoperative mean arterial pressure (MAP) greater than 65mmHg may reduce the risk of complications and adverse effects.[9]

Furthermore, studies suggest that limiting hypotensive blood pressure fluctuations to <30% of baseline could help prevent postoperative strokes.[10] Continuous, beat-to-beat blood pressure monitoring is a way to manage  hemodynamic conditions in the operating room safely.

Advantages of continuous blood pressure measurement

Our latest innovation in Advanced Hemodynamic Monitoring provides continuous and noninvasive parameters during surgery. NICCI offers an easy-to-use and comfortable solution to intraoperative hypotension monitoring as well as evaluation of further hemodynamic variables like blood flow, preload, and contractility parameters.

Keep you patient's fluid status balanced

Patients undergoing high- and medium-risk surgeries always benefit from close vigilance.[2] Optimal perioperative fluid administration is the key to a successful recovery.[2],[11] With a dynamic range of hemodynamic parameters, you can successfully optimize the best individual treatment for your patients.[12] Guide fluid therapy via dynamic parameters in order to optimize the balance between oxygen delivery and oxygen consumption.
