Physiological Monitoring of ICU patients
BEACON can be used to monitor the physiological parameters of an ICU ventilated patient.
BEACON uses inputs measured, data inputs from the ventilator and manual data entry by the clinician in order to provide the monitoring parameters
BEACON mounted on top of Ventilator
BEACON mounted on Trolley
BEACON mounted on rails in the ICU
Simple and Clear Monitor Screen
BEACON continuously monitors the patient, and provides an easy overview of all the physiological monitoring parameters.
Shunt, Low V/Q & High V/Q Estimation
BEACON can be used to estimate the Gas-Exchange characteristics for the patient. It is shown as the SHUNT value (%), the Low V/Q value (delta PO2) and the High V/Q value (delta PCO2). This can be very useful, if a PEEP ti-tration maneuver is carried out and you want to verify the effect of the different PEEP levels.
The Gas Exchange information screen displays the estimated (measured) SHUNT, Low V/Q and High V/Q for the patient
FetO2 - is the measured expired fraction of Oxygen
FetCO2 and FeCO2 - is the measured expired fraction of Carbon Dioxide
Vt - is the measured Tidal Volume
Vd-ana - is the measured Anatomical deadspace volume
Vd-alv - is the measured and calculated Alveolar deadspace volume
VCO2 - is the produced Carbon Dioxide production of the patient (incl % variation over 30min)
VO2 - is the measured Oxygen Consumption of the patient (incl % variation over 30min)
REE - is the calculated Resting Energy Expenditure of the patient (incl REE in the variation period over 30min)
RQ - is the calculated difference between VO2 and VCO2
Rf - is the measured Respiratory Rate
mV - is the minute Ventilation
VA - is the Alveolar ventilation
