BACKGROUND Cardiac Output (CO) is an important parameter in the diagnosis and therapy of heart diseases. Inert gas rebreathing (IGR) and continuous wave Doppler ultrasound (CWD) are among the most promising newer techniques aiming at a non-invasive, point of care measurement of CO. A direct comparison of the two methods has not yet been carried out. METHODS 63 consecutive patients were included in the study. CO was measured twice with both CWD and IGR to assess inter-method agreement and… CONTINUE READING
