The LiDCOrapid shows the long term trend of pressure (MAP, Systolic and Diastolic), Heart Rate (HR) and Scaled Stroke Volume (nSV) or Scaled Cardiac Output (nCO) from the beginning of a procedure. A short term trend of pressure, Heart Rate and Scaled Stroke Volume (nSV) or Scaled Cardiac Output (nCO) is displayed over the current two minute period.
Dynamic Preload Parameters Window
This LiDCOrapid window also provides you with access to preload response values or volume status indicators of: Pulse Pressure Variation (PPV%) and Stroke Volume Variation (SVV%)8. For closed chest ventilated patients these volume status measurements provide a way of predicting the likely response to volume infusions. A fluid imbalance can have an adverse effect on a patient’s cardiac performance and, in turn, oxygen delivery to key organs.
Blood Pressure Window
At the touch of a button the arterial pressure waveform is displayed on the LiDCOrapid screen. The LiDCOrapid algorithm and individualised scaling function converts this pressure into nominal stroke volume and nominal cardiac output.
Event Response Window
Pre-Load Responsiveness via the Event Response Display. The Event Response display allows the user to view a selected hemodynamic variable in a higher resolution during a specific period (e.g. fluid challenge, inotrope change). The LiDCOrapid will display percentage change from the start for the variable as a numeric value. This feature is very useful when evaluating the patient’s response to targeted interventions such as a fluid challenges or changes in inotrope therapy.
The History Screen can be used to review the patient's hemodynamic changes from a selected baseline. This screen is designed to aid in viewing the relative magnitude of changes over the entire case. The beat-to-beat patient data and event markers are recorded as a file to be reviewed on LiDCOview. Download is enabled through a USB port and memory stick. This powerful tool for data collection provides you with the ability to review, research and train using historical case data.
