PulsioFlex® is a flexible platform with intelligent visualization for advanced hemodynamic patient monitoring.

The life of your critically ill patient depends on making the right therapeutic decision. To achieve this, you need trusted information you can rely on – such as a broad set of reliable hemodynamic parameters so you can determine the best individual treatment for that patient.

PiCCO® technology was introduced in 1997 by Pulsion Medical Systems, which has more than 20 years of experience in hemodynamic monitoring. Since then, the PiCCO technology has been continuously enhanced.

Today, PiCCO technology is the established standard for advanced hemodynamic monitoring and is available with the PulsioFlex Monitoring System and integrated into monitors of the world market leaders in patient monitoring including Philips and GE.

To learn more about PiCCO technology and the PulsioFlex Monitor, download the PulsioFlex Brochure.
