Equipment review: an appraisal of the LiDCO plus method of measuring cardiac output.

Specific screens have been designed to make both the setting and checking that the patient is achieving hemodynamic targets as simple as possible. Thus, in patients with conventional indications for invasive arterial blood pressure monitoring, the device is intended as a means to display continuous haemodynamic data in a comprehensive manner. This screen simplifies the recognition and diagnosis of hemodynamic imbalance at the bedside. In a recent study utilizing the LiDCOplus it was shown that Early goal-directed llidco in the treatment of severe sepsis and septic shock.

Goal Directed Therapy

Audit reports can be run from the software quantifying hemodynamic performance vs the set targets. Trend lines can also be added to the graphical display.

The LiDCOplus will also display percent change from start for each variable as a numeric value. The various features of the arterial pressure waveform are determined by the physiology of both the heart and the pous circulation.

It has been demonstrated that recalibration is unnecessary for at least 8 hours Pittman et al.


There is mounting evidence that monitoring oxygen delivery and cardiac output in at-risk patients can significantly reduce mortality and length of hospital stay Surgery patients that are unable to balance oxygen delivery and consumption develop a peri-operative oxygen debt that increases the risk of surgical complications and death. This means that potentially complex hemodynamic data can be easily interpreted and the necessary corrective actions taken quickly.

Use is also not recommended in the presence of lidvo regurgitation; whether mild valve dysfunction has any clinically relevant effect on data accuracy is unclear. It is clear that this system provides no incremental risk to the patient and could replace the insertion of a highly invasive PAC in many high-risk patients Pittman et al.

Radiology of the Swan-Ganz catheter and associated pulmonary complications. One report recently published in Anaesthesia and Analgesia [ 37 ] showed that, ‘a SVV [stroke volume variation] value of 9.

Positive end-expiratory pressure-induced hemodynamic changes are reflected in the arterial pressure waveform [abstract] Crit Care Med. For management of volaemia, the ‘preload response’ measurements of pulse pressure variation and stroke volume variation can be useful in closed chest, mechanically ventilated patients [ 30 – 52 ].

It is reasonable to accept the body of evidence for the accuracy of the lithium dilution technique for the time being, but further validation in a general population of critically ill adults would be helpful. Mechanisms, management, and modifications.

The signal to noise ratio and hence accuracy for lithium is The bulk of mainstream users require simpler, more intuitive technology. This issue of Critical Care launches the first review in the new Health Technology Assessment section. On continental Europe approval for the lithium chloride injectate has been received for Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, the Netherlands and Spain.


Reducing the risk of major elective surgery: Uncorrected fluid shifts and blood loss during surgery, may lead to the patient being subjected to periods of inadequate oxygen delivery. The monitor has a bigger screen than the LiDCO rapidbecause there is a requirement in the ICU for the screen to pidco visible from a oidco distance.

The ability to have these two parameters monitored simultaneously on a real-time basis by the LiDCOplus can have a major impact on patient care and outcomes. Savings can probably be realized on elimination of many of the comorbidities associated with PAC insertion [ 12 – 29 ]. Performance may be compromised in patients with severe peripheral arterial vasoconstriction, in those undergoing treatment with aortic balloon olus and in those with aortic valve regurgitation.

LiDCO – Goal Directed Therapy

In addition, there are many other patients that could benefit from real-time cardiovascular monitoring if it were available in a safe and easy to apply manner. This concern applies to all cardiac output measurement techniques. Adjustments to the system ppus improve data quality. Author information Copyright and License information Disclaimer.
