As such it is considered a less invasive monitor of cardiac output than the pulmonary artery catheter, although the need for arterial and venous catheterisation renders it more so than so-called minimally or non-invasive devices (see Table 2 for a comparison of advanced haemodynamic monitoring devices).
Given the lack of comprehensive criteria to determine when invasive haemodynamic monitoring should be initiated, PiCCO may be considered in all patients in whom central venous and intraarterial cannulation is deemed necessary.
There is considerable variation in the utilisation of advanced haemodynamic monitoring devices resulting from the lack of definitive efficacy data to support their use.
The chapter on haemodynamic monitoring gives a good description of traditional monitoring and a detailed summary of the use of echocardiography in the trauma setting.
Escalating research and clinical interest in this topic has manifest in an increasing presence in the critical care literature and incorporation of new variables into haemodynamic monitoring systems.
Functional Haemodynamic Monitoring Update in Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine.
This module overcomes many of the problems associated with the Deltatrac, being of substantially smaller size and lower cost while also allowing integration with existing haemodynamic monitoring.
Given the ease with which new devices such as the M-COVX metabolic monitor can be incorporated into existing haemodynamic monitoring systems this addition to patient monitoring may soon become common practice.
Haemodynamic monitoring of cardiac output, preload (intrathoracic blood volume) and lung water was initiated using a PiCCO system (Pulsion Medical System AG, Munich, Germany).
