It is obtained by dividing the cardiac output in liters per minute by the body surface area. Normal values for an adult are 2.5 – 4.0 L/min/m2 Normal CO (cardiac output)—the volume of blood pumped by the heart per minute. CO Normal range is 4.0 – 8.0 L/min Normal CVP (central venous pressure)—the pressure of blood in the superior vena CVP cava. It is approximately equal to the right atrial pressure. Normal values are 2 – 14 mm H2O Normal DO2—amount of oxygen delivered to the tissues. DO2—amount Normal values are 950 – 1150 mls/min Normal 56 Appendix 1: Appendix Glossary (cont’d) Glossary Hemodynamics—the study of the physical aspects of blood circulation, including cardiac function and peripheral vascular physiologic function characteristics. characteristics. Hemoglobin—a protein-iron compound in the blood that carries oxygen to Hemoglobin—a the cells from the lungs and carbon dioxide away from the cells to the lungs. In LiDCO calibration the hemoglobin value is converted to packed red blood cell volume, which is important because the lithium is found only in the plasma. The additional volume of the blood due to the packed cell volume then becomes important in the cardiac output determination. determination. Lithium chloride—a natural salt (found in drinking water) that is used as a Lithium chemical marker in LiDCO calibration, has no pharmacological impact on the body, which is injected into a vein. It passes through the heart and lungs, and is picked by the lithium sensor in an arterial line. The characteristics of dilution as it travels through the circulatory system are used to calculate the cardiac output. Lithium’s positive electrical charge is what allows it to be measured electrically by the lithium sensitive sensor. sensitive 57 Appendix 1: Appendix Glossary (cont’d) Glossary MAP (mean arterial pressure)—the arithmetic mean of the blood pressure in MAP the arterial part of the circulation. It is calculated by adding the systolic pressure reading plus two times the diastolic reading, divided by 3. Normal values are 70 – 105 mmHg Normal PPV (pulse pressure variation)—pulse pressure is the difference between PPV the systolic pressure and the diastolic pressure. During mechanical respiration, the increase and decrease in intrathoracic pressure cause changes in the pulse pressure. The difference between the high and low pulse pressures represent the pulse pressure variation, and are calculated as a percentage. PPV is one of several sensitive indicators of preload. Normal values are < 10%. Values > 10% indicate the patient would benefit from a fluid bolus benefit Preload—the maximum stretch on the heart’s muscle fibers at the end of Preload—the diastolic filling. The degree of stretch is determined by the volume of blood contained in the ventricle at that time. The heart performs most efficiently when it is appropriately filled with blood. Pre-load indicators include SVP, SVV, PPV. include 58 Appendix 1: Appendix Glossary (cont’d) Glossary Sodium—one of the most important elements in the body, sodium is an Sodium—one alkaline metal found as a positive ion. It is involved in acid-base balance, water balance, transmission of nerve impulses, and contraction of muscles. The sodium value is used in the CO determination in LiDCO calibration as a baseline voltage before the lithium is injected, since it has a positive electrical charge like the lithium. lithium. SPV (systolic pressure variation)—the difference between the maximal and SPV minimal values of the systolic blood pressure (SBP) during a mechanical (ventilator) breathing. It is one of several sensitive indicators of preload. Normal values are less than 5 mm Hg. Values greater than 5 mm Hg (considered to be 10 mm Hg by some, Ken) indicate the patient is ‘dry’ (considered SV (stroke volume)—the amount of blood ejected by the ventricle during SV contraction. Normal values are 60 – 100 mls/beat Normal 59 Appendix 1: Appendix Glossary (cont’d) Glossary SVR (systemic vascular resistance)—refers to the resistance to blood flow SVR by all of the systemic vasculature, excluding the pulmonary vasculature. It is affected by changes in blood vessel diameters and changes in blood viscosity. SVR also represents the resistance against which the left ventricle must eject to force out its stroke volume with each beat. Normal values are 800 – 1200 dynes.sec/cm5 Normal SVRI (systemic vascular resistance index)—the systemic vascular SVRI resistance per body area (m2). resistance ). Normal values are 1970 to 2390 dynes.sec/cm5/m2. Normal SVV (stroke volume variation)—the reduction in stroke volume associated SVV with reduced venous return during positive pressure ventilation. Normal values are < 10%. Values > 10% indicate the patient would benefit from a fluid bolus benefit 60 Appendix 1: Appendix Glossary (cont’d) Glossary Swan-Ganz Catheter—a long thin catheter with a tiny balloon at the tip. It Swan-Ganz is used to determine left ventricular function by measuring pulmonary capillary wedge pressure. capillary 61 Appendix 2 Summary of Set-Up and Calibration Gather equipment Place LiDCO monitor in pt. room – Plug in, turn on, warm up Attach cable to overhead monitor 62 Appendix 2: Set-Up Set-Up First injectate envelope – Spike saline bag (and label) – Hang on LiDCO stand Withdraw 20 cc saline Flush Park and Ride tubing Flush Park Check expiration date on sensor packet Flush sensor with saline 63 Appendix 2: Set-Up Set-Up Second injectate envelope – – Open lithium ampule Draw the 10 cc of lithium into the 10cc syringe with Draw the filter straw the – Place multiuse port and label on the 10 cc syringe Third injectate envelope – Attach tubing to sensor – Thread tubing into regulator pump Connect sensor cable to sensor 64 Appendix 2: Calibration Calibration Obtain patient information – Height, weight, Hgb, Na Touch yellow Start icon Touch Start Enter patient information Touch PulseCo icon—make sure data is being displayed Touch LIDCO icon – – – Enter data in yellowed fields CVP if available; O2 saturation is important Sensor constant 10.5; concentration 0.300 mmol 65 Appendix 2: Calibration Calibration Inject 2 cc lithium (if pt. > 40 kg) into Park and Inject Ride tubing Ride Refill 20 cc syringe with saline Attach sensor to art-line – – – – – Turn stopcock off to arterial line Flush to remove bubbles Turn stopcock off to arterial flush open to arterial line Flush with arterial blood Attach 20 cc syringe of saline to Park and Ride tubing Attach Park 66 Appendix 2: Calibration Calibration Touch LIDCO icon to bring up Touch Calibration Screen Calibration – Voltage indicators green Turn on regulator pump to pump arterial blood Reset to bring baseline to 0.0 Unclamp venous tubing to receive lithium bolus 67 Appendix 2: Calibration Calibration Check: – – – – System ‘Ready to Use’ icon green Sensor and battery fields green Baseline at 0.0 Regulator pump running Press green inject icon Count to 5, then inject for 5 68 Appendix 2: Calibration Calibration Dilution curve appears If curve is good, follow instructions and touch If blinking icons blinking – – – – – – – Turn off regulator Flush lines Press done icon Check dilution curve Press Calibrate PulseCO icon Press ‘Done’ icon Pressing blinking ‘=‘ icon when numbers appear 69 Appendix 2: Calibration Calibration Press PulseCO icon to return to Press hemodynamic screen hemodynamic Document calibration factor Repeat every 8 to 12 hours 70 LiDCO, Limited gratefully LiDCO, acknowledges Clark Willoughby at the University of Iowa for the development of this program development 71 ...
