Norfolk University Hospital and Norwich University Hospital have been using two Mostcare Up devices since 2019.
Cytoreduction surgery (CRS), a complex procedure, is directed by a hemodynamic monitor developed by Vygon. Importantly, this technique has been proven to reduce postoperative time and complications by 45% in highly dependent wards.
In addition, Norfolk University Hospital and Norwich University Hospital recorded a 21-hour reduction in length of stay in high-dependency wards. The facility has been using two of his Mostcare Up devices to assist CRS since 2019.
This technology monitors ‘beat by beat’ arterial blood pressure and calculates detailed hemodynamic parameters. This allows clinicians to accurately optimize fluid therapy, analyze patient conditions, and ultimately provide timely and appropriate treatment.
Because fluid therapy is essential to reduce complications, the Norfolk and Norwich team used goal-directed intraoperative fluid management (GDFM) to make life-saving decisions, as read in Mostcare Up.
Data from more than 100 patients showed that they received significantly more fluids during surgery. This included cases requiring injections of 23 liters or more, based on values observed in Mostcare Up. As a result, the hospital has established a 100% reduction in respiratory or renal complications after surgery.
Muzzamil Ali, Critical Care Specialist at Vygon, explains: That’s where Mostcare Up comes in. “
He added: The device is intuitive and does not require expert operation or interpretation of results, enabling a nurse-led service. This is truly a win-win as it frees up time for her much-needed senior consultant. Feedback from the team using it has been great. “
Rocio Ochoa-Ferraro, consultant at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals, said: Mostcare Up makes it easier for our team to manage these difficult and difficult cases. And most importantly, the patient’s condition improves. “
He concludes: “Using this monitor has changed our practice because it reduces the stress of dealing with difficult cases when you don’t know what you’re dealing with from a cardiovascular or cardiac perspective.”
