Presep and Vascath Interaction Study
This is a prospective, observational study to compare presep(tm) catheter central vein mixed venous oxygen saturation before and after dialysis is initiated via the vascath(tm) central venous dialysis catheter to evaluate device interaction.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||A Pilot Study to Compare the Interaction Between Central Venous Mixed Venous Oxygen Saturation Catheters and Central Venous Hemodialysis Catheters|
- change in SvO2 [ Time Frame: before and afer initiation of dialysis via a vascath ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||August 2008|
|Study Completion Date:||December 2009|
|Primary Completion Date:||December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
The central venous oxygen saturation catheter measurement may be influenced by close approximation to the tip of the central venous hemodialysis catheter when hemodialysis is ongoing.
