With the implementation of advanced hemodynamic monitoring, the Executive expects to improve tissue oxygenation

The Regional Government of Extremadura argued that the contracting was “essential for the fulfillment and performance of the activities of the University Hospital Complex of Badajoz.” The functional thermodynamic monitoring systems are used in the specialties of anesthesiology and resuscitation and critical care. This consumable medical equipment allows adequate tissue perfusion that guarantees a correct supply of oxygen to the tissues, especially in medium-high risk patients, both in the preoperative period of the patients, to optimize their condition, and in the intraoperative and postoperative periods.

With the implementation of advanced hemodynamic monitoring, the Executive expects to improve tissue oxygenation and output, alleviate or prevent pulmonary abnormalities, evaluate cardiovascular function and response to therapy, evaluate pulmonary status and response to therapy, and evaluate fluid requirements in patients.
