LiDCOrapidv2 with Unity Software
LiDCOrapidv2 with Unity software is the latest addition to LiDCO’s suite of hemodynamic monitoring products and is a multi parameter monitor for consciousness, fluid and drug management of high-risk surgery patients. Building on the well established LiDCOrapid, the parameters of continuous non invasive blood pressure (CNAPTM) and level of consciousness (BISTM) have now been added. The LiDCOrapidv2 Unity product is a more complete hemodynamic monitoring solution enabling a wider range of patients to be monitored giving a choice of the degree of invasiveness according to the surgical and patent risk profile.
By monitoring level of consciousness and blood flow together on one monitor – both the anesthesia and fluids can be titrated more precisely and blood flow can be maintained near to targets such as pre-induction levels. The goal of avoiding hypotensive events, low blood flow and ultimately the accumulation of an oxygen debt is now more easily achieved. Excessive anesthesia, low blood pressure and oxygen debt are all important factors associated with the incidence of increased post-op complications and length of stay. Our new product allows clinicians to integrate multiple monitors reducing clutter, while providing a more comprehensive understanding of hemodynamic changes.Download LiDCOrapidv2 Brochure
Useful Throughout the whole Peri Operative Pathway
Adding a truly non invasive means of acquiring a blood pressure waveform means that a much wider range of surgical patients can have hemodynamic values determined throughout the peri operative pathway, including pre surgical care and even in the immediate pre induction period. An advantage of obtaining the pre induction blood pressure and hemodynamic values in elective patients is that once anesthesia has been induced, the pre-induction levels may then be used as a reference for blood pressure and blood flow during the operation.
Monitoring During Surgery
The LiDCOrapidv2 monitor is designed to display hemodynamic parameters that are used in the monitoring of goal directed fluid therapy and drug interventions aimed at optimizing blood flow in high risk surgery patients. Monitoring of circulatory blood volume guided by preload responsiveness parameters (SVV% / PPV%) and stroke volume response (∆SV) can be achieved with an arterial line and now non invasively by use of the LiDCO CNAPTM module. Anesthesia optimisation can now be accomplished by the combined use of level of consciousness (BISTM) with the parameters of fluid responsiveness, cardiac output and stroke volume.
Recovery, HDU and ITU
The patient can continue to be monitored in a high care area with an arterial line and now in any appropriate lower acuity care area with the LiDCO CNAPTM module. This means that advanced hemodynamics and fluid management can also be optimised in the post operative period in all locations where such care is required. This use of this new technology allows, if required, monitoring to be truly location independent and thereby frees up expensive critical care beds for the patient requiring multi organ support.
