These ‘preload’ measurements benefit from being dynamic, measured in real-time and available in a minimally invasive manner. What are the common secondary indications for its use? The recommended dose of lithium required for calibration may be used on 10 successive occasions in a 40 kg anephric patient without exceeding the therapeutic range for oral lithium therapy.


J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth. Because cardiac output is estimated every cardiac cycle, atrial fibrillation, and occasionally other arrhythmias, may result in irregular data output, limiting clinical usefulness.

LIDCOplus – LiDCO – PDF Catalogs | Technical Documentation

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 pplus. 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 ]. Measurement of cardiac output and its role in clinical management remains a controversial topic.

Arterial Pulse Power Analysis: What are the efficacy data to support its use? Uncorrected fluid shifts and blood loss during surgery, may lead to the patient being subjected to periods of inadequate oxygen delivery.


Implications of arterial pressure variation in patients in the intensive care unit. The bulk of mainstream users require simpler, more intuitive technology. Hemopytysts and pneumothorax after removal of a persistently wedged pulmonary artery catheter.

The results of that study indicated that LiDCO was more reliable than conventional thermodilution cardiac output measurement. Journal List Crit Care v. Perioperative plasma volume expansion reduces the incidence of gut mucosal hypoperfusion during cardiac surgery.

The equipment is generally reliable, although there have been manufacturing problems with the lithium sensors in the past. What are the primary indications for its use?

Equipment review: An appraisal of the LiDCO™plus method of measuring cardiac output

A new method of measuring cardiac output in man using lithium dilution. Plsu of the LiDCOplus Monitor The PulseCO software calculates continuous beat-to-beat cardiac output by analysis of the arterial blood pressure trace following calibration with an absolute cardiac output value.

Annual Liddo in Control 31, 4. This window also provides you with access to preload response values Use of lithium chloride is contraindicated in patients undergoing treatment with lithium salts, in patients who weigh less than 40 kg 88 Ib and in patients who are in the first trimester of pregnancy.

Open the catalog to page 7. 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.


Open the catalog pkus page Clinical estimation of cardiac output, even by an experienced physician, is unreliable [ 59 ], lidck the use of flow monitoring has proved beneficial in various patient groups both with [ 6061 ] and without the use of targets for oxygen flux [ 62 – 65 ].

Ventricular tachycardia associated with removal of a Swan-Ganz catheter. The relationship of central venous and pulmonary artery catheter position to acute right-sided endocarditis in severe thermal injury. In a recent study utilizing the LiDCOplus it was shown that Changes in the damping coefficient of the arterial pressure transducing system may profoundly alter cardiac output measurements.

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

Open the catalog to page 8. Lobo S et al Restrictive strategy of intraoperative fluid maintenance during optimization of oxygen delivery decreases major complications after high risk surgery. This screen simplifies the recognition and diagnosis of hemodynamic imbalance at the bedside. Comparison with aortic systolic pressure variations. A peripheral venous cannula may be used although a central venous catheter is preferable.

Any complex waveform may be analyzed by separation into a number of contributory waveforms or harmonics. Some practitioners do not accept a role for cardiac output measurement in clinical practice.
