A RESUSCITATION STRATEGY BASED ON THE OPTIMIZATION OF STROKE VOLUME IS ASSOCIATED WITH
SIGNIFICANT CLINICAL AND ECONOMIC OUTCOMES
Results from a recent study at the University of Kansas Medical Center highlight the benefits of fluid management guided by Cheetah Medical technology.
A resuscitation strategy guided by optimization of stroke volume in patients with severe sepsis and septic shock, is associated with:
- Reduced length of stay (LOS)
- Reduced fluid balance
- Reduced time on vasopressors
- Decreased need for mechanical ventilation
Volume Fluid Therapy
|Usual Care |
|Fluid Balance (Liters)||1.77L ± 0.60||5.36L ± 1.01||3.59L1,2
|ICU LOS (Days)||5.98 ± 0.68||8.87 ± 1.18||2.89 days
|Pressor Use (Hours)||32.08 ± 5.22||64.86 ± 8.39||32.78 hours
|Mechanical Ventilation (Relative Risk)||.51||CI 0.36 - .072
|Acute Dialysis Therapy Initiated||6.25%||19.5%||13.25%
THESE CLINICAL OUTCOMES MAY DRIVE SIGNIFICANT ECONOMIC BENEFITS

ICU Length of Stay (LOS): 2.89 days x ($4004 [Avg ICU Day] – $906 [Avg Floor Day]) = $8953.
Mechanical Ventilation (MV): $1522 x 5.1 days x .25 = $19404,5
1. Incremental cost of MV $1522/day
2. Average duration of MV in septic shock 5.1 days.
3. Assumes an absolute 25% reduction of patients receiving mechanical ventilation.

Cheetah Medical Economic Analysis Tool
The Economic Analysis Tool was created by Adi Renbaum of ANR Consulting and Thomas Hopkins, MD MBA (Duke University) to demonstrate a new approach to business intelligence in healthcare, providing clinicians and executives with the tools they need to simultaneously improve patient care and avoid costs. The Economic Analysis Tool can be used as part of a personalized and predictive model that can be leveraged to evaluate the cost effectiveness of purchasing noninvasive hemodynamic monitoring equipment.
The Economic Analysis Tool is product-neutral, and being such, does not take into consideration product cost.
For a more detailed analysis of how the 100% noninvasive CHEETAH NICOM and Starling SV hemodynamic systems can address your particular needs, please click on the button at the bottom of this page, and a local representative will contact you.
