Cardiac output measurement by thermodilution during cardiac operations.

Abstract

Measurement of cardiac output by the thermodilution (COTD) technique through a flow-advanced pulmonary artery catheter is simple, reliable, and practical at the bedside. Rapid repeat determinations are possible, facilitating dynamic description of myocardial performance through construction of ventricular function curves. Replicate determinations of cardiac… (More)
