Continuous SCVO2 Monitoring

The smaller the patient, the earlier you need to know.

PediaSat Oximetry Catheter is the first and only pediatric oximetry catheter with continuous ScvO2 monitoring for proactive management of tissue hypoxia.1-3

Continuous, real-time monitoring of central venous oxygen saturation (ScvO2) offers early recognition of critical changes in oxygen delivery that may not be identified by less sensitive indicators, such as traditional vital signs or intermittent sampling.

Early warning of oxygen imbalance allows early intervention.

Early indication with continuous ScvO2 monitoring offers you the clarity to detect and prevent tissue hypoxia − early− in your complex pediatric patients.

Continuous ScvO2 monitoring reveals the root cause of oxygen imbalance, enabling you to proactively determine appropriate therapy.4,11 Real-time insight into the adequacy of cardiac output allows immediate assessment of your patient's clinical response to therapy − to help you stay ahead of tissue hypoxia and stages of sepsis.

Continuous ScvOmonitoring helps guide therapy and enables early intervention:

Optimize hemodynamic management of pediatric and neonatal septic shock patients in accordance with ACCM-PALS Clinical Practice Parameters

Reduce surgical morbidity and mortality in patients with congenital heart disease

PediaSat Oximetry Catheter offers the clarity of an early warning for compromised or inadequate oxygen delivery


Continuous measurement of ScvO2 in combination with other surrogates of organ perfusion (vital signs, lactate, etc.) can be used as a reliable monitor of cardiocirculatory function.

Detect acute changes in systemic oxygen delivery and extraction

Identify decreases in systemic oxygen delivery that otherwise would not be identified using intermittent sampling

Evaluate effects of routine interventions (e.g., suctioning, bathing, turning)

Can optimize hemodynamic management in complex pediatric patients.

Congenital heart disease and other complex cardiac patients

Sepsis and septic shock


Brain injuries

Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS)

Other high-risk patients

Convenient, accurate and easy to use.

PediaSat oximetry catheter provides:

Simplicity and flexibility − uses the same insertion techniques as central lines in typical pediatric insertion sites, including subclavian and internal jugular

Continuous ScvO2 monitoring, pressure monitoring and fluid resuscitation

Accurate oxygenation status versus CO-oximeter

Double and triple lumens to monitor and administer solutions
