BACKGROUND esCCO (estimated continuous cardiac output, Nihon Kohden, esCCO) is a new cardiac output measurement system which uses pulse wave transit time to calculate cardiac output continuously and non-invasively. One of the most commonly used methods to monitor cardiac output is continuous cardiac output CCO (Edwards Lifesciences) which has an accuracy equivalent to that of thermodilution method. METHODS We compared esCCO to CCO in 67 operating room patients and 128 intensive care unit… CONTINUE READING
