IVCO2 Index™

The IVCO2 Index™ provides a continuous risk estimation of inadequate ventilation or hypercapnia. Severe hypercapnia in mechanically ventilated patients can have deleterious effects on patient hemodynamics and recovery1 and has been associated with in-hospital mortality.2,3

The IVCO2 Index™ uses mathematical models of human physiology to determine the likelihood that the patient is experiencing inadequate carbon dioxide ventilation. The algorithm also estimates the mismatch between lung ventilation and perfusion, accounting for differences that can occur between etCO2 values and arterial CO2 levels measured via an arterial blood gas sample.

The IVCO2 Index™:

  • Calculated using clinical data automatically collected by the T3 Software
  • Continuously updated and displayed in a numeric and trend format
  • Requires no additional data entry by clinicians

The IVCO2 Index™ is derived using key vital signs and laboratory results collected by the T3 Software.

The IVCO2 Index™ and relevant patient parameter trends are displayed on one screen.

T3- Respiratory Patient Display

Features:

  • IVCO2 Index™ trended and updated every 5 seconds
  • Pre-set Respiratory System display
  • Customizable display allows drag and drop of additional parameters
  • Trended intermittent data such as lab values
Etiometry’s IVCO2 Index™ is solely indicated for use for invasively mechanically ventilated patients 29 days to 12 years with weights above 2 kg.
