Description: Edwards Lifesciences Critical Care Simulation Toolkit is a set of hemodynamic monitoring simulations for use in a clinical environment. This software includes 19 preprogrammed scenarios to handle and interpret hemodynamic data in an Operating Room (OR) or Intensive Care Unit (ICU) simulation. This technology reflects hemodynamic waveforms from various medical devices and produces a screen emulator to display simulated waveforms. Additionally, this software can educate users on the clinical significance of hemodynamic values such as Stroke Volume (SV), Stroke Volume Variation (SVV), Cardiac Output (CO), and Systemic Vascular Resistance (SVR). Edwards Lifesciences Critical Care Simulation Toolkit allows users to choose from set scenarios or improvise by selecting patient type, preferred parameters, and monitoring features for the appropriate scenario.

Note: There is no dedicated website for this software.
Technology/Standard Usage Requirements: Users must ensure their use of this technology/standard is consistent with VA policies and standards, including, but not limited to, VA Handbooks 6102 and 6500; VA Directives 6004, 6513, and 6517; and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, including Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
Section 508 Information: This technology has not been assessed by the Section 508 Office. The Implementer of this technology has the responsibility to ensure the version deployed is 508-compliant. Section 508 compliance may be reviewed by the Section 508 Office and appropriate remedial action required if necessary.
