Flotrac Sensor for Cardiac Output Monitoring

Providing new standards in ease-of-use, flexibility and continuity, the FloTrac system is the next major advance in hemodynamic management

When used with the Vigileo monitor, FloTrac sensor provides continuous cardiac output (CCO), stroke volume (SV), stroke volume variation (SVV), and systemic vascular resistance (SVR)* through an existing arterial line.

Easy to use, accurate and less invasive

  • Connects to an existing arterial catheter
  • Performs continuous self-calibration through its automatic vascular tone adjustment
  • Calculates key flow parameters every 20 seconds
  • Continuously monitors changes in patient’s vascular tone (compliance and resistance)
  • Validated against the clinical gold-standard Swan-Ganz pulmonary artery catheter

The FloTrac system provides insight to make critical decisions earlier and more efficiently for patients previously monitored with traditional vital signs alone.

* Derived with CVP.
