Thoracic electrical bioimpedance, also known as impedance cardiography (ICG), is a noninvasive method to obtain hemodynamic measurements, including cardiac output. Recently, there has been a flurry of reports on the clinical use of ICG. Authors have suggested that ICG measurements are useful for a myriad of situations, including diagnosis of heart failure, monitoring of a patient's clinical status, and assisting in medicine titration decisions. However, data continue to suggest poor correlation… CONTINUE READING
