Cardiac output derived from arterial pressure waveform analysis in patients undergoing cardiac surgery: validity of a second generation device.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The performance of a recently introduced, arterial waveform-based device for measuring cardiac output (CO) without the need of invasive calibration (FloTrac/Vigileo) has been controversial. We designed the present study to assess the validity of an improved version of this monitoring technique compared with intermittent thermodilution CO… (More)
