Instantaneous intracardiac flow volumes can be calculated as the product of instantaneous flow velocity and instantaneous orifice area. This was accounted for in a new method of measuring stroke volume and cardiac output in the mitral orifice by pulsed Doppler echocardiography. This method was compared with simultaneous thermodilution in 30 adult patients… CONTINUE READING
