What is a Vigileo?

What is a Vigileo?

The Vigileo monitor measures continuous cardiac output when used with the FloTrac sensor. Stroke volume and stroke volume variation are also measured and displayed on the monitor. Continuous SVR is calculated and displayed when interfaced with the patient’s bedside monitor.

How do you zero Vigileo?

Rotate the navigation knob on the Vigileo monitor to Zero and press the knob. Select Return to exit screen.

How does a Vigileo work?

The FloTrac®/Vigileo device uses arterial pressure waveform analysis to calculate stroke volume and cardiac output; it does not require calibration against an independent measurement of cardiac output.

What is a normal SVV?

Page 2. How Can I Use SVV? Normal SVV values are less than 10-15% on controlled mechanical ventilation. The figures to the right demonstrate using SVV as a guide for volume resuscitation with a goal SVV of <13%.

How is Svv calculated?

SVV is calculated as follows; SVV= SV max – SV min/ (SV max + SV min/2) (Willars et al 2012). To simplify, SVV is the difference in maximal SV and minimal SV during respiration. The greater the difference, the more fluid responsive a patient is likely to be.

What is FloTrac ICU?

The minimally-invasive FloTrac system is a proven solution for advanced hemodynamic monitoring that automatically calculates key flow parameters every 20 seconds. Continuous clarity provided by the FloTrac system offers proactive decision support to manage hemodynamic instability and ensure adequate patient perfusion.

What is CVP?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Central venous pressure (CVP) is the blood pressure in the venae cavae, near the right atrium of the heart. CVP reflects the amount of blood returning to the heart and the ability of the heart to pump the blood back into the arterial system.

What is the difference between PPV and SVV?

SVV = Stroke Volume Variation; PPV = Pulse Pressure Variation; CVP = Central Venous Pressure; CI ECHO = Cardiac Index measured by ECHO; CI Vigileo = Cardiac Index measured by Vigileo. As shown in Fig. 4, the area under curve was significantly high for SVV and PPV only.

What is the full form of SVV?

Simply stated, Stroke Volume Variation (SVV) is “The change in the amount of blood ejected from the left ventricle into the aorta with each heartbeat.”1 This is reflected in changes in arterial blood pressure and Stroke Volume related to the pattern of respiration.
