LiDCO – Goal Directed Therapy

A bolus of lithium chloride is injected intravenously and then detected by a lithium-sensitive electrode attached to an arterial cannula. J Thoracic Cardiovasc Surg. The questionnaire-and-review structure of 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 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. Diagnosis and management in cardiac operations. The system has been used successfully with arterial cannulae in various sites, although not all have been scientifically validated.

Intraoperative intravascular volume optimisation and length of hospital stay after repair of proximal femoral llidco Am J Vet Res. The dose of lithium needed 0.

Stroke volume variation as a predictor of fluid responsiveness in patients undergoing brain surgery. On continental Europe approval for the lithium chloride injectate has been received for Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, the Netherlands and Spain. Goal-directed intraoperative fluid administration reduces length of hospital stay after major surgery. The accumulated evidence in animal and human studies does suggest a good correlation with thermodilution using the PAC.


Once again this raises the question of whether there is a reliable standard against which a new technology can be compared.

Goal Directed Therapy

These include the following: The estimated fluid required to rehydrate the patient based on observed and sensible losses was 3. Lidcoo 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.

A new complication of Swan-Ganz catherterization. Uncorrected fluid shifts and blood loss during surgery, may lead to the patient being subjected to periods of inadequate oxygen delivery. There is mounting evidence that monitoring oxygen delivery and cardiac output in at-risk patients can significantly reduce mortality and length of hospital stay What are the efficacy data to support its use?

Open the catalog to page 9. In a recent study utilizing the LiDCOplus it was shown that Early goal-directed therapy in plud treatment of severe sepsis and septic shock. Following the liver resection the total fluid volume given to recover normovolemia was only 1.

The Trend screen provides a continuous record of the patients hemodynamics. Use is also not recommended in the presence of aortic regurgitation; whether mild valve dysfunction has any clinically relevant effect on data accuracy is unclear. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Audit reports can be run from the software quantifying hemodynamic performance vs the set targets.


It is designed to work with any arterial catheter system.

Clinical assessment of cardiac output plue LiDCO indicator dilution measurement: In terms of accuracy, clinical studies have demonstrated that the LiDCO method is at least as accurate as thermodilution over a wide range plue cardiac outputs, and even in patients with varying cardiac outputs [ 5 – 9 ].

This technique of pulse contour analysis has been validated by comparison with lithium dilution and thermodilution techniques [ 71 ]. Catheter induced pulmonary artery perforation. Because of the minimally invasive nature of the technology, the device may be used more readily than the PAC.

The Event Response display allows the user to view up to 2 hemodynamic variables in a higher resolution during a specific period e.

Clearly there is a potential for product promotion, but the formalised structure and narrow scope of the questions are designed to minimise this. This system has been shown to be accurate and reliable in various clinical settings. What additional research is necessary or pending?

No additional side effects of the administration of lithium by this route have been reported. Systolic pressure variation in hemodynamic monitoring after severe lidcco injury [abstract] J Clin Anesth. Reliability of the thermodilution method in the determination of cardiac output in clinical practice.
