These patients represent plys large group and include: The monitor has a bigger screen than the LiDCO rapidbecause there is a requirement in the ICU for the screen to be visible from a greater distance.

LiDCO – Goal Directed Therapy

Health technology and credibility. Clinical assessment of cardiac output versus LiDCO indicator dilution measurement: Only three studies in humans have been published in peer-reviewed journals, two in cardiac surgical patients [ 6667 ] and one in critically ill paediatric patients [ 68 ]. The effectiveness of right heart catheterisation in the initial care of the critically ill patients.

Hemopytysts and pneumothorax after removal of a persistently wedged pulmonary artery catheter. The technique is minimally invasive, requiring only arterial and venous cannulae. 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.

Each device provides a safe and reliable alternative to the PAC. Open the catalog to page 6. This avoids the necessity for detection of any particular waveform features such as the dichrotic notch. Performance may be compromised in patients with severe peripheral arterial vasoconstriction, in those undergoing treatment with aortic balloon pumps and in those with aortic valve regurgitation.


A new method of measuring cardiac output in man using lithium dilution. Catheter induced pulmonary artery hemorrhage. A randomised, controlled trial.

The systolic blood pressure variation as an indicator of pulmonary capillary wedge ludco in ventilated patients. Estimation of changes in cardiac output from arterial blood pressure waveform in the upper limb. The responses are presented unaltered for the reader to form their own opinion.

This allows wider clinical application than oesophageal Doppler, which is poorly tolerated lidfo conscious patients, or the PAC, the duration of use of which is limited by infection risk.

These include the following: The PulseCO software calculates the pulse power and derived stroke volume from the arterial waveform. High-risk surgery patients can now be hemodynamically monitored without insertion of a catheter into an artery or probe into the oesophagus.

If you are viewing in IE7 please be aware that some functionality may not work.

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

Comparison of the accuracy of the lithium dilution technique with the thermodilution technique for measurement of cardiac output.

Because lithium dilution measures cardiac output rather than stroke volume, significant change in heart rate during the calibration process will result in misleading data. Clearly there is a potential for lirco promotion, but the formalised structure and narrow scope of the questions are designed to minimise this.

The equipment provides a valuable guide to fluid and inotropic therapy in high-risk patients in the intensive care unit, operating theatre and other critical care areas. They conclude that starting GDT at any time in the peri-operative period is useful, but there is strong evidence for the provision of advanced hemodynamic monitoring ie fluid and stroke volume optimisation in surgery and for oxygen delivery targeting in the ICU.


Right heart catheterisation and cardiac complications in patients undergoing noncardiac surgery: The system is safe, accurate and easy to use Pittman et al.

Prediction of fluid responsiveness One indication for the use of flow monitoring is the prediction of fluid responsiveness. Lithium indicator dilution Several studies have evaluated the lithium dilution technique of cardiac output measurement, most frequently in comparison with thermodilution using the PAC. Pulse contour analysis The various features of the arterial pressure waveform are determined by the physiology of both the heart and the peripheral circulation.

In terms of accuracy, clinical studies lodco demonstrated that over a wide range of cardiac outputs the LiDCO method is at least as accurate as thermodilution However, the LiDCO plus monitor can also be calibrated by the lithium dilution method. Clinical application The equipment provides a valuable guide to fluid and inotropic therapy in high-risk patients in the plys care unit, operating theatre and other critical care areas.

Crit Care 9 6 In many cases it averts the pluss for an invasive PAC and associated morbidity [ 12 – 29 ]. The questionnaire-and-review structure lidcp the assessment is intended as a template for development of the HTA section, and will be maintained as a consistent format for future device reviews.

The use of intravenous lithium chloride is not recommended in patients who weigh under 40 kg, those who are pregnant and those receiving oral lithium therapy.
