Monitoring IVs in Adult and Pediatric Critical Care Units

Clinicians in the ICU are equipped with game changing IV monitoring technology that supports them in providing the best patient care in high-pressure environments.

Provides Continuous IV Supervision

Changes in the tissue around an IV site signal a possible infiltration event. The Patient Monitor detects the signal change and notifies the clinician to act quickly. ivWatch Patient Monitoring solutions detect an infiltration in as little as 0.22ml of fluid—often before it is visible by the human eye.1

With the need for around the clock bedside monitoring, an influx of patients, and rapidly changing life-threatening patient conditions, ivWatch provides clinicians with the reassurance that patient peripheral IVs are always being watched.

Lends an Extra Set of Eyes

The ivWatch technology is constantly monitoring peripheral IVs at every stage of a patient’s stay in the ICU. No matter the state of the patient, the monitor can speak for the patient, even when they are not able.

Accelerates Response Times

The ivWatch system can detect an infiltration up to 15 hours before the clinician.2 With a multitude of vitals and alarms to constantly manage, clinicians can trust the system’s visible and audible notifications, make a decision, and quickly respond to infiltrations early.

Gives Clinicians the Ability to Focus on Demanding Scenarios

ivWatch has a low false notification rate1, resulting in less distractions, which allows the clinician to focus on more severe circumstances.

Reduced Dosing Errors

Every infiltration is a missed dose and each dose is essential for ICU patients. IV infiltrations are an unnecessary complication and an added cost that can be minimized with the use of ivWatch technology.

Adds Efficiency to Workflow

Clinicians can digitally document an IV status during routine patient assessments, which helps with patient information sharing between shifts. The history of an IV is in one consolidated location that can be captured into an EMR system.

Saves PPE & Protects Against Exposure

Even when clinicians are not in the room, they are supported with accurate and consistent IV monitoring. With a monitoring device sensitivity of 96.4%1, a clinician can quickly halt the progression of an infiltration/extravasation related injury that could have lasting effects long after the treatment of the primary illness.

ICUs have unique IV needs that ivWatch can meet, giving clinicians and patients one less thing to worry about.
