Noninvasive Monitoring: Fluid Responsiveness using the Pleth Variability Index & Continuous Hemoglobin - Insights from UCI CMO Dr. William Wilson

Thursday, November 5th, 2020 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CT

During this webinar, UC Irvine Health System's CMO will discuss their organization's approach to care for critically ill patients and non-invasive monitoring.

Key Learnings:

  • Dynamic measure of volume responsiveness (SVV, PPV, PVi) should be used to guide fluid administration.
  • PVi has the advantage of being non-invasive and widely available.
  • Continuous hemoglobin (SpHb) monitoring provides real-time values without delays related to sample acquisition or lab TAT.
  • An integrated goal-directed therapy (GDT) approach using both PVi and SpHb can result in fewer units of blood transfused, and improved outcomes (including survival).
