✓ Minimally Invasive Arterial Line Monitoring

Each LiDCO monitor comes with minimally-invasive monitoring as standard making use of an existing arterial line to measure blood volume.



The LiDCO hemodynamic monitor is used to monitor the amount of blood flowing around the body and ensure that vital organs are adequately oxygenated through the titration of fluid and drug management.  Find out more about how it works.

Clinical evidence shows that optimizing the hemodynamic status of high-risk patients produces better outcomes and reduced hospital stay.

Hemodynamic parameters

  • Cardiac Output (CO);
  • Systemic Vascular Resistance (SVR);
  • Stroke Volume Variation (SVV);
  • Long-term trend of pressure (MAP, Systolic and Diastolic);
  • Stroke Volume (SV);
  • Heart Rate (HR).

Key features

  • Very easy to set up and use;
  • Designed to be used to help prevent complications in high-risk surgery;
  • Designed to be used for early use in sepsis;
  • You can see why the blood pressure had changed, which helps with important clinician decisions;
  • The monitor shows the parameters that help to decide when to start and stop giving fluid.

The LiDCOplus hemodynamic monitor provides a continuous, reliable and accurate assessment of the hemodynamic status of critical care and surgery patients.

The LiDCOplus is comprised of two technologies: a continuous arterial waveform analysis system (PulseCO™) coupled to a single point lithium indicator dilution calibration system.

LiDCOplus offers

  • Highly accurate calibration enabling the effective titration of fluids and drugs;
  • Highly precise trends that have been shown to be effective in the presence of inotropes and vasopressors;
  • The ability to be used minimally invasively with the existing arterial line and no central line required;
  • A range of user interfaces to meet the requirements of the clinical setting.

+ Continuous non-invasive blood pressure monitoring

Adding the LiDCO continuous non-invasive arterial pressure (CNAP™) module provides continuous cardiac output non-invasively, without the requirement for an arterial line.

The CNAP™ dual finger cuffs provide a continuous, non-invasive pressure that is then analysed by the validated PulseCO™ algorithm to derive beat-to-beat hemodynamic data.

Hemodynamic parameters

  • Cardiac Output (CO);
  • Systemic Vascular Resistance (SVR);
  • Stroke Volume Variation (SVV);
  • Long-term trend of pressure (MAP, Systolic and Diastolic)
  • Stroke Volume (SV);
  • Heart Rate (HR).

Key Features

  • Safe and easy to use, allowing for effective hemodynamic management of all surgery types;
  • The device allows for monitoring prior to induction as well as throughout surgery. This enables immediate fluid and drug management and the setting of hemodynamic baselines;
  • CNAP™ is used with the PulseCO™ pulse power algorithm which reliably tracks hemodynamic change in the presence of inotropes and vasoactive drugs;
  • The CNAP™ dual finger cuff system is scaled to the brachial artery with an arm cuff to provide a reliable continuous absolute value for blood pressure;
  • SVV, PPV, HR and change in SV will be comparable to those derived from an invasive arterial line.

 Depth of Anaesthesia Brain Monitoring

In light of the impact of anesthesia on hemodynamic physiology, BIS™ technology (Medtronic) has been integrated into the LiDCO enabling clinicians to titrate anesthesia with its hemodynamic effects, thus ensuring that neither over-anesthetising, nor under-anesthetising, nor dramatic falls in blood pressure and flow need take place.

LiDCO Blood Pressure Module

The LiDCO Blood Pressure module (HM 38-01) is used to provide an alternate means of arterial blood pressure waveform input to LiDCO monitors. The BP module is used in conjunction with the LiDCOrapid (V1.03 and above) and LiDCOplus (V4.02 and above).

  • The BP module allows the arterial blood pressure waveform to be accessed directly via a standard invasive blood pressure transducer when connected to a patient monitor.
  • The BP module is used when it is difficult or not possible to access the arterial blood pressure waveform via a standard analog output from the patient monitor.
  • The BP Module will also accept a standard analog output from the patient monitor.
  • Refer to your specific LiDCO monitor userʼs manual for detailed instructions on the monitor.

Communication Links

LiDCO monitors can interface with hospital information systems and provide data to electronic medical records via standard communications links. Both the plus and rapid utilise the serial port on the monitor and the communication standard RS232 to provide this interface. In most instances the LiDCO monitor will interface with a local bedside device provided by the 3rd party. A driver may be necessary for systems not listed below. Contact LiDCO to obtain detailed specifications for the RS232 interface.

The LiDCO hardware connection point is COM1 for all serial communications output from LiDCO monitors. COM1 is a standard 9-way serial port. The communications software module must be switched on in the Engineering Screen along with the system specific settings.

LiDCOplus provides DO2/DO2I, CO/CI, SVR/SVRI, SV/SI, Sys/MAP/Dia, SVV, PPV, SPV and HRV

LiDCOrapid V1 provides CO/CI, SVR/SVRI, SV/SI, Sys/MAP/Dia, SVV, PPV, SPV and HRV

LiDCOrapid V2 provides CO/CI, SVR/SVRI, SV/SI, Sys/MAP/Dia, SVV, PPV, SPV, HRV, BIS, EMG, SQI, SR and BC

The products have one of two serial output settings depending on the type of system that is being connected.

IntelliBridge or VueLink is used for interfacing with Philips patient monitors.

All LiDCO monitors are compatible with the newly released Philips IntelliBridge patient data interface. IntelliBridge connects via a specific Philips Intellibridge module and cable.

  • IntelliBridge Module: EC10
  • IntelliBridge cable: EC5 (via a standard CAT5 cable)

VueLink connects via a specific Philips Vuelink module and cable. This setting is also used by Capsule Technologie.

  • Vuelink Module: ‘Aux Plus’ (M1032A, A05);
  • Interface Cable: M1032-61699, K6C;
  • The data output frequency is controlled by Philips. The user can control the averaging period for each data point.

LiDCOSerial is used for all other interfaces with systems that have developed drivers (listed below).

  • Picis;
  • iMDSoft;
  • GE Centricity.

The data output frequency is adjustable from beat-to-beat out to every 4 hours. The user can control the averaging period for each data point as well.

Port configuration settings for RS232 can be modified within the Engineering Screen. The default settings are as follows:

Baud Rate: 57600
Data Bits: 8
Stop Bits: 1
Parity: None

For GE Centricity, the Baud Rate must be set to 19200 and parity must be set to even; data observation must be set to Beat-to-Beat.
