rapidly and noninvasively assess hemodynamic status in the Emergency Department
Quickly determining whether a patient is fluid responsive and improving perfusion is vital to a wide variety of patient conditions seen in the Emergency Department. The CHEETAH NICOM and Starling SV hemodynamic systems can rapidly, easily and noninvasively provide vital hemodynamic information to further guide treatment decisions and patient care.
Cheetah’s 100% noninvasive hemodynamic profile allows clinicians to:
- Treat complex clinical situations without the risks and time associated with invasive lines
- Guide fluid resuscitation in septic and shock patients
- Quickly assess in real time if your patient is responding to fluid resuscitation by trending direct stroke volume changes (SV)
- Fine tune fluid administration using a passive leg raise (PLR) or small fluid bolus to determine the direct response of the heart to additional volume
Using Cheetah Monitors in the Emergency Department is quick and easy. In most cases, setup time to data collection is < 2 minutes. The four sensor pads are easily placed around the heart, and data collection begins when the display shows proper sensor placement and good connectivity.
