A pulse-contour-based method for continuous measurement of cardiac output (CO) and systemic vascular resistance (SVR) was tested and arterial thermodilution, used for calibration, was compared to pulmonary artery thermodilution. In 30 patients CO and SVR were measured by pulse contour analysis (COpc, SVRpc) 270 times in 24 h and compared to arterial (COart, SVRart) and pulmonary arterial (COpa, SVRpa) thermodilution measurements. The mean difference between COpa and COart was 0.26 L/min (3.6… CONTINUE READING
