Providing extracorporeal life support
ELSA® Monitor is the latest development in extracorporeal life support monitoring. Determine the presence and amount of oxygenator clotting by measuring oxygenator blood volume with a saline bolus. Trend charts for oxygenator blood volume are available directly on ELSA® for easy tracking of volume changes indicative of clot formation. In addition, recirculation measurements during IV ECMO provide optimal placement of double lumen catheters and relative cardiac response to ECMO therapy.
ELSA® is a standalone ECMO monitor with a rechargeable battery for portability. The intuitive touchscreen clearly presents all relevant patient data and is easy to clean to prevent cross-contamination.
