Pleth Variability Index (PVI®) is a breakthrough measurement that may help clinicians noninvasively and continuously assess fluid status of patients.
- > Fluid administration is critical to optimizing patient status.1
- > Traditional methods to guide fluid administration often fail to predict fluid responsiveness.2
- > Newer methods may accurately predict responsiveness but are invasive or costly.3
- > PVI has been shown to help clinicians predict fluid responsiveness in mechanically ventilated patients under general anesthesia during surgery and in the ICU.4,5
- > PVI has been shown to help clinicians improve fluid management and decrease lactate levels compared to standard care.6
"PVI demonstrated high accuracy in discriminating fluid responders from non-responders—providing a unique opportunity to better manage a patient’s fluid volume to optimize cardiac performance and organ perfusion."
