Edwards Lifesciences Vigilance II Forums
My name is Calaiha Hamburger, and I work at University of Arizona Medical Center in Tucson, AZ.
I work on a CVIMC floor with a focus on HF patients. Recently we have had several patient who need Swan-Ganz monitoring which is only done on our CVICU floor.
Due to peak season volumes, these patients have been unable to transfer to the ICU for this type of monitoring, so a discussion is being had regarding the feasiblility of training my staff to care for this patient population.
We are a semi-private floor, with limited space, so are looking for smaller equipment that will meet these patients' needs. I found your Vigilance II monitor online, and would like to know if this machine is capable of moitoring wedge pressures for hemodynamic monitoring, and possible Dobutamine titration.
