Such an accumulating dysoxia can result in a significant peri-operative metabolic imbalance leading to major organ dysfunction, post-operative morbidity and — kidco extremis – death.

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

Predicting hypovolemia during mechanical ventilation: Assessment of lithium dilution cardiac output as a technique for measurement of cardiac output in dogs.

The results of that study indicated that LiDCO was more reliable than conventional thermodilution cardiac output measurement. What are the common secondary indications for its use?

This is not problematic unless the pulse rate is particularly irregular. Provides early warning of patient deterioration Optimisation of oxygen delivery Optimisation plks fluid management Rational drug administration e.

Int J Pluus Care. Efficacy and safety of intravenous levosimendan compared with dobutamine in severe low-output heart failure the LIDO study: At the touch of a button the arterial pressure waveform is displayed on the LiDCOplus screen.

Crit Care 9 6 The LiDCOplus system is a combination of the two innovative Pous validation in these two areas may allow wider use of the technology. In Atlas of Cardiovascular monitoring.

The use of systolic pressure variation in hemodynamic monitoring during deliberate hypotension in spine surgery [abstract] J Clin Anesth. Mechanisms, management, and modifications. Case Study — an example from the LiDCO rapid design evaluation phase — comments were from a consultant anesthetist in the beta site trial testing of the GUI:.

No additional side effects of the administration of lithium by this route have been reported. What additional research is necessary or pending? The dose of lithium needed 0. A small dose of lithium chloride is injected via a central or peripheral venous line; the resulting arterial lithium concentration—time curve is recorded by withdrawing blood past a lithium sensor attached to the patient’s existing arterial line.


Once again this raises the question of whether there is a reliable standard against which a new technology can be compared. The bulk of mainstream users require simpler, more intuitive technology.

Implications of arterial pressure variation in patients in the intensive care unit. Am Rev Respir Dis. Annual Reviews in Control 31, Patients that could benefit from this technology include both the arterial line and non-arterial line patient. The Event Response display allows the user to view up to 2 hemodynamic variables in a higher resolution during a specific period e. The equipment is generally reliable, although there have been manufacturing problems with the lithium sensors in the past.

As outlined in the editorial [ 1 ], the format is a combination of information from the developer and a balanced independent review. This review discusses the technological basis of the device and its clinical application.

Acta Anaesthesiologica Scandinavica doi: If you are viewing in IE7 please be aware that some functionality may not work. Open the catalog to page 5. Do pulmonary artery catheters improve patient outcome? One indication for the use of flow monitoring is the prediction of fluid responsiveness.

LiDCO – Goal Directed Therapy

Any error in the calibration process once the lithium bolus is injected will result in a delay of approximately 15 min while the background plasma lithium concentration subsides. The questionnaire-and-review structure of the assessment is intended as a template for development of the HTA section, and will be pljs as a consistent format for future device reviews. The pharmacokinetics of intravenous lithium chloride in patients and normal volunteers.

This issue of Critical Care launches the first review in the new Health Technology Assessment section. 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.


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. Systolic ldico pressure variation is a sensitive indicator of hypovolemia in ventilated dogs subjected to graded hemorrhage. However, the LiDCO plus monitor can also be calibrated by the lithium dilution method. In many cases it averts the necessity lidvo an invasive PAC and associated morbidity [ 12 – 29 ].


This absolute cardiac output value is accurately and precisely measured using the innovative LiDCO lithium chloride bolus indicator dilution method. This means that potentially complex hemodynamic data lidcco be easily interpreted and the necessary corrective actions taken quickly. These patients represent a large group and include: Annual Reviews in Control 31, 4. Each device provides a safe and reliable alternative to the PAC.

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

Strengths Weaknesses May be used in conscious and unconscious patients Arterial waveform artefact may significantly affect data accuracy May be calibrated by nursing or medical staff in 10 min Irregular pulse rate may affect data accuracy Provides dynamic markers of fluid responsiveness Nondepolarizing muscle relaxants interfere with calibration. Systolic pressure variation in hemodynamic monitoring after severe blast injury [abstract] J Clin Anesth. However, whether thermodilution can be regarded as a ‘gold standard’ of cardiac output measurement is doubtful.

The LiDCO system does ldico require the use of special catheters, introducer trays, or x-ray information for verification of correct positioning. In contrast, protocol led interventions goal directed therapy or GDT to maximize flow-related hemodynamic variables during surgery see review by:
