BACKGROUND: Pulmonary artery catheter (PAC) thermodilution is commonly used in the perioperative cardiac surgical intensive care unit for measurement and management of central hemodynamics despite questions about effectiveness, difficulty of use, and safety. USCOM is a noninvasive continuous wave Doppler device for direct measurement of cardiac output (CO) and is an alternative to PAC. USCOM validation has predominantly been in the cardiac surgical intensive care unit against PAC, despite the… Expand
Noninvasive Cardiac Output Measurement in Shock Patients
TLDR
ICG and USCOM do not show clinically acceptable agreement in shock patients, and statistical significance was observed within each modalities but the authors did not find statistical significances between the two modalities. Expand
Cardiac output by arterial pulse contour: reliability under hemodynamic derangements.
TLDR
PRAM resulted to be accurate in measuring CO during hemodynamic stability, tachycardia, and vasoconstriction when volemia was reduced by >35%, and disagreement between methods was observed. Expand
Pulmonary Artery Catheter (PAC) Accuracy and Efficacy Compared with Flow Probe and Transcutaneous Doppler (USCOM): An Ovine Cardiac Output Validation
TLDR
PAC demonstrated poor accuracy and sensitivity as a measure of CO, while USCOM provided equivalent measurements to FP across a sixfold range of outputs, reliably detecting ±5% changes. Expand
Cardiac index measurements by transcutaneous Doppler ultrasound and transthoracic echocardiography in adult and pediatric emergency patients
TLDR
The USCOM-1A hemodynamic monitoring technology showed poor correlation and agreement to standard transthoracic echocardiography measures of cardiac function, and the utility of USCOM -1A in the management of critically ill patients remains to be determined. Expand
Mechanical ventilation with positive end-expiratory pressure in critically ill patients: comparison of CW-Doppler ultrasound cardiac output monitoring (USCOM) and thermodilution (PiCCO)
TLDR
While thermodilution methods like PiCCO are well established but time-consuming and invasive, CW-Doppler based USCOM constitutes an important tool for easy, rapid and reliable diagnosis and haemodynamic monitoring of critically ill patients. Expand
Transient Hemodynamic Change and Accuracy of Arterial Blood Pressure-Based Cardiac Output
TLDR
The FloTrac/Vigileo measured stroke volume with reasonable accuracy during transient hypotension but overestimated stroke volume during transient hypertension. Expand
Feasibility of cardiac output estimation by ultrasonic cardiac output monitoring in the prehospital setting
TLDR
The acceptable success rate for a new technique the authors observed and the high easy-to-use score suggests that the use of USCOM is feasible in prehospital emergency medicine. Expand
Measuring the cardiac output in acute emergency admissions: use of the non-invasive ultrasonic cardiac output monitor (USCOM) with determination of the learning curve and inter-rater reliability
TLDR
The non-invasive ultrasonic cardiac output monitor (USCOM) was investigated to determine its learning curve and inter-rater reliability and following a training period of less than 5 h, USCOM stroke volume measurements demonstrated excellent inter- rater reliability. Expand
A comparison of the non-invasive ultrasonic cardiac output monitor (USCOM) with the oesophageal Doppler monitor during major abdominal surgery
TLDR
This study compared a non-invasive Doppler device – the ultrasonic cardiac output monitor (USCOM) – with the oesophageal doppler monitor (ODM) on 25 patients during major abdominal surgery, finding that SVUSCOM showed good concordance and accurately discriminated a change ≥10% in SVODM. Expand
Influence of different positions on hemodynamics derived from noninvasive transcutaneous Doppler ultrasound
TLDR
Data show that it is feasible to perform the noninvasive transcutaneous Doppler ultrasound using the pulmonary approach in the semirecumbent position for patients unable to maintain the supine position and the aortic approach inThe sitting and semireCumbent positions is not suitable as it is not sufficiently reliable.

Cardiac output estimation with a new Doppler device after off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery.
TLDR
This study showed excellent agreement between the values for CO, SV, and CI as determined with USCOM and TD, and the stability of this correlation needs to be further investigated over time. Expand
Non-invasive cardiac output determination by two-dimensional independent Doppler during and after cardiac surgery.
TLDR
Using the ultrasonic cardiac output monitoring (USCOM) device it is possible to determine noninvasive beat-to-beat CO in postcardiac surgery patients without the possible complications associated with invasive right heart catheterization. Expand

TLDR
Very good agreement is revealed between the values of CO estimated by USCOM and TD, which is similar to that estimated by bolus thermodilution technique. Expand

TLDR
The USCOM monitor is accurate, rapid, safe, well-tolerated, non-invasive and cost-effective in intensive care monitoring, but its suitability for use in high and low cardiac output states requires further validation. Expand

TLDR
Analysis of respiratory changes in aortic blood velocity is an accurate method for predicting the hemodynamic effects of volume expansion in septic shock patients receiving mechanical ventilation who have preserved left ventricular systolic function. Expand

TLDR
The USCOM provided reliable measurements of cardiac output over a wide range of values, and clinical trials are needed to validate the device in humans. Expand

USCOM may be a non-invasive alternative to PAC for measurement and monitoring of haemodynamics in animals and humans and showed good correlation, while FP and PAC were poorly correlated. Expand

Continuous and real-time monitoring of stroke volume variation by pulse contour analysis can predict volume responsiveness and allows real- time assessment of the hemodynamic effect of volume expansion in patients with reduced left ventricular function after cardiac surgery. Expand

TLDR
The thermodilution technique of measuring cardiac output is inaccurate in patients with tricuspid regurgitation, yielding results that are consistently lower than the actual outputs. Expand
