Overview

ScvO2 offers quick reacting information on the patients hemodynamic status. ScvO2 is much more sensitive than blood pressure and heart frequency for detecting shock status of any origin

General

ScvO2 monitoring facilitates early detection of:
• Imbalance between oxygen supply and oxygen consumption
• State of shock of any origin
• Insufficient cardiac output (surrogate parameter)

Advantages

• Immediate recognition of insufficient tissue oxygenation
• Access via standard CVC
• Reduction of blood gas analysis
• Oxygen balance in real-time
• Easy handling no in-vitro calibration required

Useful application in

• Emergency department
• Septic shock
• Early goal directed therapy
• Cardiogenic shock
• Burns
• Polytrauma
• Perioperative monitoring in cardiac surgery
• Postoperative monitoring
