The FloTrac system automatically updates advanced parameters every 20 seconds, reflecting rapid physical changes in moderate to high-risk surgery more accurately. Advanced hemodynamic parameters provided by the FloTrac sensor offer you continuous insight to more accurately determine your patient’s fluid status. The minimally-invasive FloTrac sensor connects to any existing arterial catheter.


In just a decade, the FloTrac sensor has been chosen by clinicians more than any other volume management solution to manage over 2.5 million patients worldwide.

Advanced hemodynamic parameters, when implemented within a PGDT protocol, are demonstrated to reduce post-surgical complications in moderate to high-risk surgery patients.  The FloTrac system provides advanced hemodynamic paratmeters that can be used in PGDT to control variability in volume administration and help you maintain your patient in the optimal volume range.


  • Stroke Volume Optimization (SV) 

Stroke volume measurement with the FloTrac sensor enables an individualized approach for administering fluid until SV reaches a plateau on the Frank-Starling curve, to prevent hypovolemia and excessive fluid administration.

  • Stroke Volume Variation Optimization (SVV)

For control-ventilated patients, SVV has proved to be a highly sensitive and specific indicator for pre-load responsiveness, serving as an accurate marker of patient status on the Frank-Starling curve.

  • Oxygen Delivery Optimization (DO 2with CCO) 

Continuous cardiac output (CCO) measured by the FloTrac system can be used (in combination with SaO 2 and hemoglobin) to monitor and optimize DO 2 with fluid (including red blood cells) and inotropic agents.
