Guided fluid and drug administration during surgery and critical care
Now succeeded by ODM+, ODM (also known as CardioQ-ODM) enables hospital clinicians to deliver accurate, real-time, guided Haemodynamic Management. It is an important aid in avoiding the dangers of reduced oxygen delivery.
The ODM monitor is highly responsive in tracking changes in Stroke Volume and Cardiac Output during surgical intervention and in the critical care setting. Only oesophageal Doppler has been shown to have the precision to drive the 10% Stroke Volume Optimisation algorithm, widely acknowledged as the basis for haemodynamic management.
Uniquely, oesophageal Doppler monitoring (ODM) directly measures blood flow in the central circulation. It is highly sensitive to changes in flow and measures them immediately and accurately. The system offers a high degree of precision (low repeatability error), which allows it to recognise the small changes in Stroke Volume, which is the basis of published Stroke Volume Optimisation protocols.
Extensive clinical trials have demonstrated that with direct measurement of blood flow, clinicians can correct individual patient circulating blood volume. It has been reported that 70% of patients have hypovolaemia (low blood volume) when they are prepared for surgery. This hypovolaemia can result from the combined effects of poor diet, dehydration, preoperative fasting, and the the vasodilatory effects of anaesthetic agents. It can be compounded by blood loss during the surgical procedure.
ODM guided fluid management is a cornerstone of Enhanced Recovery, delivering better quality and more cost-effective care as it means patients recover from their surgery faster and leave hospital sooner and in better health than they otherwise would.
