PiCCO2 vs. EV1000 - Algorithm differences, additional features

ELWIsmart compensation after lobectomyClinical studies necessary to prove validity and accuracy, until today three studies on this topic showing no significant EVLW differences before and after lobectomy

SVVextraAlready in the PiCCO algorithm since PiCCOclassic V4.1 (from 2000); means, the Edwards SVV algorithm was and is still erroneous

“Lung Resection Compensation Feature”

  • Argumentation tips:

  • Lung tissue is mainly removed if it is damaged, mostly by trauma, inflammation or tumors.

  • Local lung perfusion is therefore already reduced even before resection.

  • Where there are local lung perfusion disturbances, ELWI is measured as a false low before resection,

  • because only the perfused parts of the lung are integrated into the ELWI measurement.

  • So ELWI may be the same before and after resection, especially where there is reduced local perfusion.

  • If a compensation factor for different segments of the lung are used in the EV1000,

  • ELWI can be changed to any level. There is no literature to support this factor.

  • It is more objective to measure ELWI before and after lung removal, to get accurate

  • information about real changes in PiCCO ELWI

  • Even if ELWI is altered , the trend and dynamics of the PICCO ELWI is are correct!

  • Remember only the PiCCO ELWI is indexed to predicted body weight ensuring its increased accuracy

PiCCO2 vs. EV1000 - Algorithm differences, additional features

GEDVsmart, EVLWsmartEV1000 EVLW validation was done by using PiCCO as gold standard with excellent agreement, means no significant improvement in the new algorithm.

GEDVsmart should enhance accuracy in case of a L-R shunt. No data published regarding this.

Right-to-left heart shunt detectionalso possible with the TD curve in the PiCCO, until today only one publication (letter by Michard), no quantification of shunt volume or cardiac output, which was already included in PiCCOplus V7.1 but skipped in PiCCO2 because of not proven clinical relevance and accuracy

EV1000 market entry – Challenges and advantages

  • Edwards confirms the PULSION philosophy of heamodynamic monitoring and promotes volumetric monitoring, lung water and calibrated pulse contour CO

  • Edwards has a ME2 device, PiCCO is the original

  • PiCCO is already widely spread, also as modules for monitors

  • In the validation study PiCCO is used as gold standard

  • Edwards promoters can not anymore argue against PiCCO

  • Risk for the PiCCO installed base?

    • - as US company Edwards will avoid liability problems

    • - direct promotion of VolumeView sets to be used with PiCCO is unlikely

  • Risk of price war?

    • - Edwards is focusing on high margins and need them to achieve ROI
