Other High Risk Areas

LiDCO hemodynamic monitoring systems are used within other high-risk areas.
• Maternity
• Cath Lab
• Burns
• Transplant
• Other high dependent areas

The goal in other high-risk areas is to provide continuous blood pressure monitoring during high-risk procedures such as emergency caesareans.

The challenge in these high risk situations is that the measurement of continuous blood pressure with a standard branchial cuff is inadequate.

Our non-invasive technology enables not only continuous blood pressure monitoring but also full dynamic hemodynamic indices as well.

ERAS in a single high-volume surgical oncology unit

ERAS in a single high-volume surgical oncology unit

Patient Population
Mixed abdominal cancer surgery.

LiDCO Monitor
LiDCOrapid as part of an enhanced recovery program (ERAS).

Trial Design
Before vs after ERAS introduction.

Outcome Impact
LOS reduced by 2 days (8 to 6) & mortality reduced from 2.9% to 0%.

Hemodynamic effects during spinal anesthesia for elective cesarean delivery

Hemodynamic effects during spinal anesthesia for elective cesarean delivery

Patient Population
Cesarean.

LiDCO Monitor
LiDCOplus.

Trial Design
Prospective, randomised and double-blind among 40 patients.

Outcome Impact
Bolus phenylephrine reduced maternal CO and decreased CO when compared with ephedrine during elective spinal anesthesia for Cesarean delivery.

GDFT hemodynamic stability of parturient for cesarean delivery and newborn well-being

GDFT hemodynamic stability of parturient for cesarean delivery and newborn well-being

Patient Population
Hypertensive caesarean section.

LiDCO Monitor
LiDCOrapid fluid optimisation (GDFT).

Trial Design
Randomised SV as target for fluid optimisation vs. routine fluid care.

Outcome Impact
In the GDFT group: heart rate, incidences of hypotension & use of phenylephrine were all lower than in the control group.  In the fetus pH in umbilical artery/vein were significantly decreased, as were incidences of neonatal hypercapnia and hypoxemia.

GDFT hemodynamic stability in parturient women under spinal epidural

GDFT hemodynamic stability in parturient women under spinal epidural

Patient Population
Cesarean.

LiDCO Monitor
LiDCOrapid.

Trial Design
100 term parturient women scheduled for elective cesarean section randomly allocated to GDFT or a control group.

Outcome Impact
The incidence of hypotension and mean phenylephrine dose administered prior to delivery were significantly higher in the control group than in the GDFT group (P < 0.01).

Practice guidelines for obstetric anesthesia

Practice guidelines for obstetric anesthesia

Guideline
Obstetric Anesthesia.

Purpose
The purpose of these guidelines are to enhance the quality of anesthetic care for obstetric patients, improve patient safety by reducing the incidence and severity of anesthesia-related complications, and increase patient satisfaction.
