Critical Care

The ODM+ monitor is designed to allow clinicians to guide fluid and drug administration during critical care. The monitor is highly responsive in tracking changes in Stroke Volume and so Cardiac Output during intervention.

Only oesophageal Doppler has been shown to have the precision to drive the 10% Stroke Volume Optimisation algorithm, widely acknowledged as the basis for Fluid Management.

Additionally ODM+ has a Pulse Pressure Waveform (PPWA) mode which is quickly and easily calibrated from the Doppler signal, providing continuous monitoring for postoperative and medical patients in Critical Care. In sedated patients the PPWA algorithm can be recalibrated at any time from the Doppler waveform.

Treatment algorithm suggested by Professor Mervyn Singer, University Hospital, London.

Benefits & Evidence

The majority of evidence supporting fluid management comes from the surgical setting. For a summary of that evidence, see our Evidence Table.

The ODM has been demonstrated to improve patient patient outcome when used to manage fluid administration and cardiovascular function in postoperative, and medical critical care patients. View the Library for a list of references.

The addition of Pulse Pressure Waveform Analysis (PPWA) into the ODM+ allows continuous haemodynamic monitoring and provides additional utility over the ODM in the critical care setting.
