Subarachnoid Hemorrhage (SAH) refers to bleeding into the subarachnoid space, which is the area between the brain and the thin tissue (arachnoid layer) that covers it. It occurs in various clinical contexts, with the most common being brain aneurysms, spontaneous bleeding and head trauma.
Patients diagnosed with SAH have a need for tight volume and perfusion management. The advanced hemodynamics of the Cheetah platform can help optimize brain perfusion. A continuous Stroke Volume measurement gives the clinician the ability, in real time, to gauge fluid responsiveness, by assessing changes in Stroke Volume in response to an IV bolus.
Why Are SAH Patients Likely to Benefit From Cheetah Technology?
Early and optimal fluid administration is a key factor for managing perfusion and blood flow. Dynamic parameters, such as tracking changes in Stroke Volume Index, provide more reliable indicators for appropriate fluid management.
