Liquoguard7

Liquoguard7 is the first fully automated external CSF drainage system to reach the market and is a revolutionary step forward in patient care in comparison to the conventional gravity assisted devices. Developed by Moeller Medical, Fulda, Germany, Liquoguard 7 allows for simultaneous pressure measurement and drainage of CSF fluid for Ventricular (EVD) and Lumbar (ELD) applications.

How it works:

A single use disposable tubeset is connected to the drainage catheter (EVD/ELD) and is mounted into the Liquoguard7 device. Connected to the tubeset is an external transducer which is positioned on the patient via an ECG electrode at the dedicated reference point of the physician. As a result, the reference point remains constant even during altering patient position. With this the risk of over-drainage is significantly decreased.

The Liquoguard7 device can be programmed to allow for CSF drainage to occur when a certain pressure, measured in cmH20 or mmgh, is reached. This maintains the same principle of the gravity assisted devices and familiarity with the nursing teams. A flow rate can then also be set to ensure a specific volume is drained, or in some cases not drained. I.e. not to drain more than 20ml per hour. This also significantly decreases the risk of over over-drainage as excess CSF isn’t allowed to drain during high pressure situations.

Some of the many benefits of Liquoguard 7 include:

  • User Friendly Monitoring – No opening and closing of taps, no height adjustment required – eliminating risks associated with changes in patient positioning.
  • Increased Patient Safety – Controlled flow rate, reducing the risk of over-drainage.
  • Precision Patient Monitoring – Live pressure readings, allowing for precise management during differing scenarios.

With the increased patient safety and ease of use it may be possible, on occasion, to transfer patients earlier from a critical care setting to the ward, potentially freeing up an ITU bed.
