Non-invasive continuous monitoring of cardiac output could be very useful in clinical care and in research settings, particularly in elderly subjects. We studied whether Finapres arterial pulse wave analysis with Modelflow is a reliable non-invasive method for the assessment of cardiac output in healthy elderly subjects. We compared Modelflow cardiac output (MFCO) with thermodilution cardiac output (TDCO) in 28 healthy subjects, aged 70+/-4 years (mean+/-S.D.). TDCO was measured during right… CONTINUE READING
