SWAN-GANZ PULMONARY ARTERY CATHETERS

One catheter. Continuous parameters on three major
integrated elements – flow, pressure, oxygen delivery and consumption – for a comprehensive hemodynamic profile when used with a compatible cardiac output monitor.

The single, continuous and comprehensive solution for assessing hemodynamic status.

SVO2

CCO

SV

RVEDV

RVEF

SVR

PVR

RAP

PADP

PAOP

For patients in need of the highest level of monitoring and those who require precision-guided hemodynamic therapy for:

• ARDS
• Cardiac Surgery
• Severe Trauma
• Cardiogenic Shock
• Septic Shock
• Hemorrhagic Shock
• CHF
• High-risk Surgery
• Pulmonary Hypertension
• Surgical Pre-optimization
• Ventilator Patients with PEEP

Advanced hemodynamic parameters include:

  • Cardiac output (CO)

  • Mixed venous oxygen saturation (SvO2)

  • Stroke volume (SV)

  • Systemic vascular resistance (SVR)

  • Right ventricular ejection fraction (RVEF)

  • Right ventricular end diastolic volume (RVEDV)

  • Right atrial pressure (RAP)

  • Pulmonary artery pressure (PAP)

  • Pulmonary artery occlusion pressure (PAOP)

  • Diastolic pulmonary artery pressure (PADP)

STANDARD AND PACING CATHETERS

The Swan-Ganz catheter. The clarity you need to make more informed decisions.

Thermodilution pulmonary artery catheters

Edwards Lifesciences’ Swan-Ganz thermodilution catheters offer the flexibility of multiple solutions as they provide insight into a patient’s hemodynamics.

• When used with a compatible monitor, the following parameters are available 

   through the thermodilution catheters: ICO, RAP, PAPs, PAOP


• Assess hemodynamic condition through direct intracardiac and pulmonary 

   artery pressure monitoring, determine cardiac output, and infuse solutions

   (when used with a compatible monitoring platform)


• The distal (pulmonary artery) port also allows sampling of mixed venous blood

   for the assessment of oxygen transport balance and the calculation of derived

   parameters such as oxygen intrapulmonary shunt fraction


• The Swan-Ganz VIP catheters have an extra lumen with proximal port (30 cm)

   for infusion in addition to the standard distal and injectate lumens to provide

   direct access to the right atrium

Flow-directed monitoring catheters

The flow-directed monitoring catheters monitor right heart pressures and enable mixed venous blood sampling as well as infusing solutions.
