Edwards Lifesciences has recently introduced the FloTrac™ sensor and Vigileo™ monitor system for monitoring cardiac output continuously. It does not require thermodilution or dye dilution, but rather bases its calculations on arterial waveform characteristics in conjunction with patient demographic data. It is unique among arterial waveform cardiac output systems in that it does not require calibration with another method. Studies thus far indicate that it is robust and accurate over a wide… Expand
FloTrac® Monitoring System: What Are Its Uses in Critically Ill Medical Patients?
TLDR
Cardiac output measurements using the FloTrac® device are not accurate enough for use in patients with septic shock, advanced liver disease and other medical conditions associated with decreased vascular tone. Expand
Arterial waveform analysis to determine cardiovascular parameters
Pulsatile pressure has been recorded routinely in human cardiovascular diagnostic laboratories, operating rooms and critical care units since the present generation started work, and pulsatile flowExpand
Clinical evaluation of the FloTrac/Vigileo system and two established methods for continuous cardiac output monitoring in patients undergoing cardiac surgery
TLDR
A new arterial pressure waveform analysis device, which does not need external calibration (FloTrac/Vigileo) became recently available for cardiac output (CO) measurement, but only limited validation data for this technique are so far available. Expand
Continuous arterial pressure waveform monitoring in pediatric cardiac transplant, cardiomyopathy and pulmonary hypertension patients
TLDR
There was poor agreement between the PAC and FloTrac™ in measuring cardiac output in a population of children with pulmonary hypertension or cardiomyopathy, or after cardiac transplantation, which suggests that the utility of the Flo Trac and measurements obtained from arterial pulse wave analysis in children is uncertain at this time.

Comparison of non-calibrated pulse-contour analysis with continuous thermodilution for cardiac output assessment in patients with induced hypothermia after cardiac arrest.
TLDR
Induced hypothermia was not associated with increased bias or limits of agreement for the comparison of Vigileo and continuous thermodilution, but percentage error was high during normothermia and increased further during Hypothermia. Expand
Cardiac output measurement : evaluation of methods in ICU patients
TLDR
The aim of this thesis is an overview and evaluation with respect to less invasive cardiac output measurement and monitoring systems, especially the pulse contour technique. Expand

TLDR
A clinical review on the technology, physiology, and applications of a new arterial pressure-based method of determining cardiac output and stroke volume variation as an additional parameter for fluid status assessment is provided. Expand
Assessment of a Cardiac Output Device using Arterial Pulse Waveform Analysis, VigileoTM, in Cardiac Surgery Compared to Pulmonary Arterial Thermodilution
TLDR
During cardiac surgery and after leaving the operating room, VigileoTM is not clinically equivalent to continuous thermodilution by pulmonary artery catheter, and the connection between CCO and ICO relates the difference between APCO and CCO more to the different algorithms used. Expand
Advanced Cardiovascular Monitoring
The Frank-Starling curve (the curvilinear relation between cardiac output (CO) and preload) can be used for optimalization of the blood circulation and tissue oxygenation, in order to decreaseExpand
Performance of a minimally invasive uncalibrated cardiac output monitoring system (Flotrac/Vigileo) in haemodynamically unstable patients.
TLDR
Despite the updated algorithm, AP-CO still showed a limited agreement with the reference-CO and systematically underestimated the CO so that the method is not suitable to replace invasive CO monitoring at present. Expand

PulseCO: a less-invasive method to monitor cardiac output from arterial pressure after cardiac surgery.
TLDR
PulseCO measurements remain reliable without recalibration for at least 8 hours after cardiac surgery and may offer a less-invasive approach for early postoperative cardiac output monitoring. Expand
Validation of a continuous cardiac output measurement using arterial pressure waveforms
TLDR
A novel arterial pressure cardiac output (APCO) measurement method requires only access to a radial or femoral artery via a standard arterial catheter and does not require use of venous access or injection of a dilution medium for calibration. Expand
An evaluation of the pulse-contour method of measuring cardiac output.
TLDR
The PC method would seem to offer a simple, clinically useful method for on-line monitoring of short-term variations in cardiac output in patients during anaesthetic induction for cardiac surgery. Expand
Finapres arterial pulse wave analysis with Modelflow is not a reliable non-invasive method for assessment of cardiac output.
TLDR
Although simple, non-invasive and patient-friendly, the Modelflow method is inaccurate for assessment of cardiac output without invasive calibration. Expand
A comparison of cardiac output derived from the arterial pressure wave against thermodilution in cardiac surgery patients.
TLDR
The difference between the methods remained near zero during surgery suggesting that a single calibration per patient was adequate, and after calibration the model method can quantitatively replace further thermodilution estimates. Expand
Comparison of Aortic Pulse‐wave Contour Analysis and Thermodilution Methods of Measuring Cardiac Output during Anesthesia in the Dog
TLDR
Computer analysis of the aortic pressure wave is a simple and valid method of determining ±Qt during halothane anesthesia, but must be limited to conditions of only moderate alteration of SVR during infusions of vasopressor or vasodilator drugs. Expand
Cardiac output monitoring: aortic transpulmonary thermodilution and pulse contour analysis agree with standard thermodilution methods in patients undergoing lung transplantation
TLDR
Measurements with the aortic transpulmonary thermodilution technique give continuous and intermittent values that agree with the pulmonary thermodillution method which is still the current clinical standard. Expand

TLDR
Measurement with the aortic transpulmonary thermodilution technique gives continuous and intermittent values that agree with the pulmonary thermodillution method. Expand
Prediction of fluid responsiveness in patients during cardiac surgery.
TLDR
In patients after CABG surgery who were ventilated with low tidal volumes, SVV enabled prediction of fluid responsiveness and assessment of the haemodynamic effects of volume loading. Expand

TLDR
Stroke volume (SV) estimation from computer analysis of aortic pressure contour was tested in 12 anesthetized dogs and 2 humans with A-V block and proved consistent but inaccurate in the dogs and in the human subjects. Expand
