The system provides direct continuous measurement of all components in the oxygenation chain: ventilation, oxygen transport and gas exchange (VO2, VCO2). Breath-by-breath gas exchange ventilation monitoring (Patient Spirometry) is integrated in a single plug-in module. All information is acquired through the patented D-lite sensor attached to the patient's airway. The integrated Cardiac Output and SvO2 module, added to basic haemodynamic monitoring, completes the oxygenation view.
According to the supplier, the system reduces documentation work by providing automatic, easy-to-follow trends with user-configurable laser-printed reports on physiological events and laboratory results. It can also capture and store real-time waveforms for laser printing.
