TheĀ CardioQ-ODM+ is designed to allow clinicians to guide fluid and drug administration during major and high risk surgery. The monitor is clinically proven and when used to guide Perioperative Fluid Management, reduce postoperative complications; intensive care admissions, intensive care stay, length of hospital stay and costs. CardioQ-ODM is the only fluid management technology to be awarded with NICE Guidance (MTG3).

10% Stroke Volume Optimisation

Stroke Volume Optimisation (SVO) is in its simplest form the administration of fluid, most often a colloid, guided by an algorithm to normalise Stroke Volume without the risk of fluid overload. The 10% SV change algorithm for SVO utilises the Frank-Starling law, which established the relationship between left ventricular stroke volume and left ventricular end diastolic volume.

Only the CardioQ-ODM has the precision necessary to guide successfully a 10% Stroke Volume Optimisation (SVO) protocol. Its considerable evidence base is testimony to the unique ability of the CardioQ-ODM to recognise and monitor 10% changes in Stroke Volume.
