Swan ganz vs Picco

  1. Our unit is updating our haemodyamic monitoring system, as we have just installed new monitors. There is a bit of an debate on ,if we should use swan ganz or picco catheters. Has anyone had any problems with either? any info would be helpful as it looks we are swinging towards the picco. Many of the RNS are not happy in changing as they have always used the swan and feel that the picco will not do the same monitoring . Any feedback would be great
