Alternatives to Swan-Ganz cardiac output monitoring.

Abstract

When we are concerned about the adequacy of peripheral oxygen delivery, our monitoring efforts focus on cardiac output as the component easiest to manipulate. Thermodilution is the current method of determining cardiac output because of logistic convenience, but by no means should it be considered the gold standard. Thoracic electrical bioimpedance is an… (More)
