[Noninvasive evaluation of cardiac index and ejection fraction in ischemic heart disease. Comparison of thoracic bioimpedance, thermodilution and cineventriculography].


Aim of the study was to verify the reliability of thoracic bioimpedance cardiography (TEB) in detection, non-invasively, cardiac index (IC) and ejection fraction (FE), compared to simultaneous evaluation by invasive thermodilution (TD) in 39 patients with acute myocardial infarction in Killip class I-II (group I), and by cineventriculography (CVG) in 26… (More)
