We hypothesized that NICOM CO would have more significant associations with clinical conditions than would systolic blood pressure (sBP). METHODS This is a prospective observational study of consecutive(More)

The aim of this larger study was to reassess the relationship of PetCO2 with CO and identify patient(More)
