Does impedance cardiography reliably estimate left ventricular ejection fraction?

Abstract

Objective. The objective of our study was to evaluate impedance cardiography (IMP) as a noninvasive method to determine the left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF).Methods. A total of 24 patients, 8 men and 16 women, aged 45.0 ± 12.9 years, participated in the study. They used cardiotoxic chemotherapeutic drugs or suffered from cardiac failure. LVEF was… (More)
