The University awarded a contract for continuous cardiac output (cco) monitors/supplies to Edwards LifeSciences, Irvine, CA for an estimated $369,200.
Extensive research and clinical trialing of various continuous cardiac output monitors have been done. It has been determined that this is the only equipment that performs at the required level in an Intensive Care Unit and with the appropriate patient care outcomes. The Vigileo monitors are to be used for noninvasive hemodynamic monitoring and Edward LifeSciences is the only proven company that offers this monitoring technology.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration.
